I would like to thank everyone who played such an incredibly important role in helping to make Social Media Week such a huge success. Particular thanks to our volunteers, staff, advisory board members, city organizers, event partners, sponsors, media partners and of course our wonderful attendees.
In total, more than 7,000 people attended across the six cities and over 150 individual organizations were directly involved in helping to produce the conference.
In addition to significantly increasing in size from 2009, the scope of our program also grew with more than 200 events hosted, covering such topics as social media’s impact on healthcare, technology, non-profits, corporate social responsibility, higher education, politics, open design, crowdsourcing, social graph optimization, PR and brand communications.
Here in New York, we hosted 80 individual events, partnering with organizations such as Wired, JWT, The New York Times, Porter Novelli, The Paley Center for Media, Razorfish, MoMA, Sony, Converseon, Morris+King and many many more.
Thanks also to New York sponsors MotoBLUR, Thrillist, Wholefoods & Diageo and to our media and communication partners PSFK, The New York Times, Mashable, Fast Company, Porter Novelli, 360i, SmartBrief, Mediaite, Mediabistro, PR Newswire, PressLift, SoundCtrl, Gary’s Guide and CSR Wire, and to our streaming partner Livestream.
