Social Media Week

Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

In addition to offering Social Media Week Chicago attendees breathtaking views of the city, the 82nd floor of Willis Tower, located at 233 S. Wacker Dr., will be the week’s official Science & Technology and Lifestyle & Culture hub. The venue will host events including:

Willis Tower, known as the Sears Tower until it was renamed in 2009, is the tallest building in the United States and among the top 10 tallest in the world. On a clear day, visitors are able to see four different states from the building’s latest attraction, the Skydeck, and its breathtaking view – straight down to Wacker Drive – from The Ledge.

“Willis Tower is one of the world’s most iconic buildings, home to industry-leading companies and hundreds of other thriving businesses,” said Samantha Regan, leasing associate at U.S. Equities Asset Management. “Social Media Week’s attendees will foster conversations that explore the impact of social media in science, technology, lifestyle, culture and beyond from a truly global hub for business.”
