In its 9th year, Social Media Week London (#SMWLDN) brings together professionals with a curiosity and passion for new ideas, innovations and emerging trends in social media.
This year the theme is Closer and will explore the intensifying conflict between individualism and community. Over three days we will tackle three big sub-themes including The YouUniverse, The Social Divide and AI vs Humanity.
We have designed a programme that will meet the needs of professionals at every level, including senior executives seeking strategic insight and tactical know-how for those at the coalface of executing social media programmes and campaigns.
More than 100 speakers from around the world will take the stage and share ideas, inspiration, best practices and actionable insights with an audience of more than one thousand five hundred attendees.
From our Opening Reception, networking breaks throughout the day, breakout sessions, The Connect Lounge, Networking Lunches, the Official Mobile App, we aim to provide effective ways to meet and engage with attendees throughout the event.
The SMW audience is made up of professionals at the intersection of media, marketing and technology across a range of industries including marketing, advertising, communications, media, publishing, technology and entertainment.

"SMW addresses the contemporary issues and evolutions of our industry in such a way that makes it the premier event for anyone who is remotely interested in 'social' or considers themselves an 'expert.'" - Marcus Collins, SVP, Executive Director of Social Engagement, Doner
