Professionals who’ve missed out on Ragan Communications’ sold-out conference at Facebook headquarters next month still have time to sign up for a webcast of the groundbreaking event.

Professionals who’ve missed out on Ragan Communications’ sold-out conference at Facebook headquarters next month still have time to sign up for a webcast of the groundbreaking event.

Though the in-person tickets have all been snatched up for Ragan’s Social Media and Storytelling Summit at Facebook’s Menlo Park, California, headquarters, communicators can soak up the savvy and strategy from their desks July 27.

The summit brings together social media competitors to discuss what the future will hold and how practitioners should adapt to a rapidly changing landscape.

Leading industry experts will present new strategies to increase reach and return on investment for Facebook and other social media. The webcast offers a rare chance to hear—live from the Facebook campus—what changes are coming for the major social media powerhouses.

“We expected this conference to sell out quickly, but six weeks out? That’s insane,” says Mark Ragan, chief executive of Ragan Communications. “Clearly, organizations are eager to master the strategies that make social media tools so powerful.”

The webcast costs $795. And who says webcast participants aren’t the smart ones? They can watch from their desk, save $400 off the price of attending live, and avoid the long airport lines.

The summit will cover some of the hottest areas in social media today. A Facebook strategist will speak on “Next-level Facebook strategies: New ways to tell and sell your story,” and a LinkedIn expert will offer insights on how to “Leverage LinkedIn: Inside secrets of showcasing business and personal brands.”

Internet visionary Jeremiah Owyang will lay out what’s coming next in “What's after social media? Social commerce lessons of Uber and Airbnb.” Famous author and strategist Brian Solis of The Altimeter Group will offer a keynote address on “The embrace: Compete for digital relevance with pervasive storytelling and engagement.”

Other breakout sessions will feature speakers from Cision, Citi, Adobe, Live Video Campus and other social media leaders.
