A Reason to Unplug


Social Media Week

Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.


The Future of Now looks at the balance we all need in life, using tech to enhance our humanity and reconnect. And the holidays remind us of the need for this.

We’re thrilled to be hosting numerous sessions during SMW14 that are geared directly toward this. We have Erica Dhawan sharing on connectional intelligence. When almost everyone has at least the capacity to link up with people, power, ideas, information and faraway resources, how do we connect better, faster, more efficiently. It’s a deep look at the power of our relationships.

We also have Upworthy’s Eli Pariser sharing how you can encompasses using community to truly effect change with content. As the king of viral, he understands the distinct reasons we share and the revelations that has for us and our networks. We’re even getting a little granular during the week with a Masterclass that looks at how tech can help us combat the health and physical aspects of staring at a screen all day.

We know the week holds something for everyone. And we want you to be there with us, our creative partner MKG, and Nokia at Campus at Highline Stages.

Our 20% Early Bird Discount is still in effect (only until January 8th, though!). Plus, if you purchase on Tuesday, we’ll donate 20% of all our Pass sales to benefit Bpeace, an organization that helps entrepreneurs expand and scale their businesses to lead to stability and peace in post conflict countries.

This means you save $80 off your Insider Pass, give $80 to help entrepreneurs, and score a $50 gift card to BOND with your Insider Pass on Tuesday.

We wish you a wonderful holiday season and hope to see you in February!
