Africa’s first Social Media Week opens in Lagos

February 2013 will mark the first time Social Media Week takes place on the continent of Africa! Social Media Week Lagos brings together thought leaders, creatives, entrepreneurs and everyday citizens from Nigeria -and throughout the continent and the diaspora- to explore how people and organizations are connecting to share new ideas and information.

Social Media Week is a worldwide event exploring the social, cultural and economic impact of social media. Our mission is to help people and organizations connect through collaboration, learning and the sharing of ideas and information.

“By programming keynotes and panels that look at how Africans – Nigerians in particular – are incorporating social media in their unique social, political, and creative landscapes, Social Media Week Lagos will explore just how important being connected to the world is for 21st century Africans,”  -Ngozi Odita, Executive Director of Social Media Week Lagos.

There are many compelling reasons to attend. Here are just a few:

Community created content:  Due to the unique way that the program is curated, the content and programming is designed to cover every emerging trend, technology area and industry sector.

Free to attend:  Thanks to the generous support from our sponsors and partners, events hosted directly by Social Media Week are free to attend and events hosted in conjunction with Social Media Week are primarily free or significantly subsidized.

Iconic venues and locations: We believe space should always factor into the design of the experience. Thanks to strategic partnerships with iconic institutions and venues, such as the MoMA, the New York Times and the Paley Center for Media, Social Media Week is able to enhance your experience and make this possible.

Hyper-social attendees:  Due to a focus on depth and diversity, the conference attracts a broad array of hyper-social influencers, practitioners and academic thinkers.
