New York, NY (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
For the first time, Social Media Today, in partnership with BlogWorld, will host a two and a half day event, from September 15-17 in Atlanta at the Hyatt Regency. They will bring together major thought leaders from leading brands such as AFLAC, Citigroup, Dell, Get Satisfaction, PWC and more. Maggie Fox, the founder of Social Media Group will be hosting the event, plus they will showcase many of the Social Media Today bloggers and other key leaders from the Social Media Today community. They specifically chose Atlanta to hold this event because it has a vibrant social marketing scene as well as great brands, many of which will be speaking at the conference.
According to author Brian Solis, “the future of business is all about shared experiences” so they are calling the event the Social Shake Up Conference, because social media is a force rarely seen before in the history of business – and it’s dramatically changing the business landscape.
“What Andrew McAfee predicted in 2006 in his book, Enterprise 2.0, is here and whether it’s called the enterprise social, social business, or just the biggest communications revolution since the printing press, it’s changing the way we all do business,” said Robin Fray Carey Co-Founder and CEO at Social Media Today LLC
“Social tools and strategies are breaking down barriers – between companies and their customers and across organizations,” said Rick Calvert Co-Founder and CEO of BlogWorld/New Media Expo. “The silos that once existed between customer service and marketing, between marketing and sales, within marketing plans and media, are falling down as big data, social media, and a 24/7 connected world drive strategy, collaboration and decision-making.”
The combination of these two media powerhouses have resulted in a jam-packed conference split in five tracks with keynotes beginning and end of each day and plenty of time for networking with Social Media Today bloggers, speakers and members. Topics will range from big data, mobile, content and marketing, the social organization as well as community and customers. Anyone from large enterprises to small businesses, and from government agencies to non-profits should attend.
