💯 Reports, session recaps, and speaker presentations will be available to download post-event.

Join the #SMWONE Mission

Over the course of four weeks, a number of industry experts will come together to help us confront the emerging challenges of today and explore ways to put humanity at the center of our strategies as we look ahead. These include Gary Vaynerchuk, Kristin Patrick, CMO of PepsiCo, Rishad Tobaccowala, Chief Growth Officer at Publicis Groupe, Pam Wasserstein, President of Vox Media, Rishi Magia, Creative Strategist at Instagram, Dara Treseder, CMO of Carbon 3D, and Joe Marchese, CEO of Attention Capital.

In addition to our mainstage speakers, we’ll be joined by a number of sponsors, affiliates, and partners who will play an integral role in helping us achieve our goal. Here’s what a few of them have shared ahead of May:

“The world is now a different place, due to COVID-19 and it is our job to help our clients navigate the monumental change we’re experiencing right now. To that extent, we need SMW’s thought leadership more than ever and we are incredibly excited to support the launch of #SMWONE, their virtual conference series.” – Daniel Bennett, Worldwide Chief Innovation Officer, Grey

“Now, more than ever community must be at the heart of everything we do. Social Media Week has always been an indispensable partner in making this happen off-line. We look forward to working with them on bringing the industry together online in new and exciting ways at a time when we need to build community most.” – Shauna Sweeney, Global Head of Industry Marketing, Facebook
