The Eli and Edythe Broad Stage

This year’s conference will take place once again at The Eli and Edythe Broad Stage, a beautiful venue featuring a 500-person theatre, plus co-working lounges where you can meet with colleagues or clients, connect to WiFi to get your normal work done, and space to relax as you enjoy the incredible sessions throughout the week.

There is also a WORKSHOP experience that will take place at an adjacent stage called “The Edye” which holds up to 100 people. Workshop events are intimate, hands-on events for #SMWLA attendees to learn the latest skills, best practices, and future trends across media, marketing, technology, and entertainment. Look on the schedule for the events taking place at The Edye.
