7 Unmissable #SMWLagos 2017 Events for Activists & Governance Practitioners

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.

We’re proud to help facilitate events that give citizens the tools they need to make informed decision about government. That’s why we’re excited that Governance Day is back for SMW Lagos 2017. Activists fighting for human rights, as well as citizens using social media to connect with government will be sure to find an event that will bridge the connection between citizens and government. Check out this installment of Unmissable Events.


Being Africa’s largest tech, new media and business conference and having attracted annually over 12,000 participants, featuring 200+ speakers and a social reach of 810 million, SMW Lagos has come back with a bang for 2017! Its 5th year is the best year yet and it boasts of offering a wide variety of quality programming.

This year’s theme “The [new] Language of Technology: The Future of Communication in Africa.” has been great inspiration for over 100 events.
