You could say we have a special type of affinity for our new Global Headquarters. Not just because it’s the first of it’s kind, but because it embodies the type of immersive experience we’ve been dreaming about. Combined with our hallmark top-notch speakers and gold standard programming, basically, it’s our very own version of Social Media Week Heaven.
The Metropolitan Pavilion will house the HQ from February 19th to the 22nd. It’s the perfect environment for the interactive installations, activities, and lounges that will complete this experiential space. Speakers Tonya Surman, CEO for the Centre for Social Innovation, Ben Kaufman, founder & CEO of Quirky, Cindy Gallop and the MakeLoveNotPorn.tv team, and Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit are among the cadre of thoughtleaders that will guide conversations around our theme Open & Connected: Principles for a Collaborative World. Stay tuned, however, there are many, many announcements and surprises to come.
Each and every hub that comprises the SMW NYC experience will provide unique and valuable content for free, but the Global HQ will be the home away from home for those patrons looking to submerge themselves in our programming.
For access to the Global HQ, you’ll need to purchase one of our Premium Insider or Global HQ passes. This will not only provide access to all of the perks aforementioned, but free classes too!
