#SMW17 June Edition is a Wrap! Thank You to our Entire SMW Community!

Social Media Week

Thank you, #SMWLA speakers, partners, staff, volunteers, and attendees for making June’s edition of Social Media Week our best one yet!

Thank you to our attendees, speakers, partners, volunteers, independent event organizers, and everyone in the SMW community for making #SMW17 June edition a truly incredible experience.

It was another inspiring week exploring the business, art, science, and future of social media, as well as the second edition of SMW that discussed our global theme, “Language and the Machine: Algorithms and the Future of Communication”.

We want to thank our official cities Milan, Mexico City, as well as our participating SMWi city: SMWi Nairobi (#SMWiNairobi) for hosting this year.

This year’s event would not have been possible without our sponsors: National Geographic, NetBase, Jukin Media, Crimson Hexagon, Morton Salt, Cheetah Mobile, Diageo, Tracx, YouTube, Lineate, TechStyle, Leaf Group, and LIVESTRONG.com.

We’d also like to thank our Premium Content Partners: Crowdtap, Pinterest, and PicsArt, as well as all of our Food and Beverage Partners, Content Partners, and Technology Partners for supporting the 8th edition of Social Media Week Los Angeles.

If you didn’t attend #SMWLA, you can re-live every official event with SMW Insider, our on-demand platform to watch the full videos from all official #SMWLA sessions, plus hundreds of hours of video from past Social Media Week events.
