“Social Media Week is a real-world manifestation of some of the best that new technology has to offer – ideas, strategies and insights shared by the people who are shaping the future.” Ellen McGirt, Senior Writer, Fast Company

What is SMW Mexico City?

In its 3rd year Social Media Week Mexico City brings together the top of the industries leading companies at the intersection of entertainment, media, marketing and technology, including Buzzfeed, LinkedIN, IBM, AUDI, Global Online Video Association and many more.

In 2016 lead organizer Soulnet will focus on creating a content experience that provides attendees with new ideas, insights and best practices at a great venue which will foster networking and collaboration.  Specific features of the 2016 event include:

  • ONE VENUE
    We’ve decided to focus on quality over quantity by restricting the amount of available passes, and host #SMWMexico at one single but in a larger venue: La Universidad de la Comunicación
  • Diversity
    No matter if it’s the Main Stage Keynotes or Panels, Masterclasses or Small seminars, Social Media Week Mexico City will provide the diversity necessary to get an global view over the digital future as well as train yourself for your digital day by day life.
  • Event Flow
    For your convenience in #SMWMexico 2017 we split the event into
    Inspirational Strategic Morning Sessions and
    Knowledge Tactical Afternoon Sessions
  • ONE Pass for all
    Whether you buy a Campus Pass or a VIP Connect Package. All passes will give you access to all on Stage events (excluding VIP networking events).
  • The VIP Connect Package 
    With the launch of SMW Connect we now offer a group package that includes an invitation to an exclusive industry networking event.
  • Keep Working while ON SITE
    Knowing that you need to keep up with your work and do not want to leave the event at the same time, we build a CoWorking Area together with our partner to make sure you can do both at the same time.

Official programming during #SMWMEXICO will take place at:
