This isn’t a typical conference. This is your meeting.
This is an exclusive, private meeting for SocialMedia.org members — no vendors, no sponsors, and no outsiders. It’s part strategic planning, part deep learning, and part family reunion.
It’s thrilling, inspiring, and exhausting.
Everyone in the room is a social leader at a big brand just like you. You’re amongst friends. Prepare for hugs.
Hide your badge! Avoid eye contact. Just keep moving…
Everything is off the record, and everyone has signed a confidentiality agreement. Share openly and dig deep on the real issues.
Live-streamed, recorded, and blogged.
It makes for great marketing and content, but the event experience isn’t the same when everyone knows they’re on the record.
Members share ideas, answers, and advice. Get expert opinions from people who’ve been there, done that.
Guest speakers, panels, and keynotes.
Polished presentations can be great, but you can get those anywhere (often, without leaving the office since they’re recorded).
You’ll have incredibly valuable conversations you can’t have anywhere else.
There are certain things you can only talk about in total confidence with people like you, with jobs like yours (and problems like yours), at companies like yours.
That’s what Member Meetings are focused on.
Members will help you with the toughest challenges you’re facing.
You’ll dig into the real issues that never get discussed on panels, in analyst reports, or even back at the office — things like managing your team, dealing with vendors, and navigating internal politics. (You know, the real issues that come with your job.)
You decide what we talk about.
If you’re going to spend your time and money going to a conference, you shouldn’t have to listen to irrelevant panels chosen by a meeting planner or sponsor. Bring a list of what you’re working on and see just how much this community can help you.
You’ll be amazed at the level of sharing and openness.
Because everything is confidential and off the record, you’ll be blown away by the level of transparency and candidness. Get real answers to those “I can’t ask this anywhere else” questions.
The result? It’s an incredibly valuable use of your limited time and travel budget.
- Better answers — because all the content and conversations are from people who know what you’re going through and want to help.
- Information you can’t get anywhere else — because it’s off the record and isn’t getting shared anywhere else.
- An incredibly efficient use of your time — because every conversation is useful and relevant.
You can always go to a conference. This is that rare chance to be with your people. It’s a blast.
It’s a fun, emotional lift you need. At most events, the brands are hiding from the vendors. This is where you can relax, connect, and know you’re with your people.
We’re going to catch a White Sox game together, enjoy a great dinner, and have time to explore the city and its parks and museums. We’ll have a band. We’ve been known to have ice cream for breakfast. You’ll love it.
This is your meeting, and it’s one of the biggest perks of membership.
