By · October 16, 2012 · Filed in Social Media Marketing World 2013 · No Comments »

Do you attend in-person conferences?  

Imagine an event where you rub shoulders with the social media pros you follow and admire online.

Then imagine networking with 1,000 fellow marketers in beautiful San Diego, California.

Now add the waterfront San Diego Marriott Marquis hotel, an opening-night party surrounded by dinosaur relics, an evening networking cruise on Southern California’s largest private yacht and 49 expert-led sessions.

That’s a small sampling of what’s in store for you at Social Media Examiner’s new conference: Social Media Marketing World!

What? Social Media Examiner is hosting a physical conference?

Social Media Examiner is known for its signature online summits like Social Media Success Summit and Facebook Success Summit.

And yes, these events bring together the world’s top social media experts and entrepreneurs, and gather huge worldwide audiences.

But social media marketing doesn’t need to be strictly an online experience. There’s great value when you make those online relationships come alive in person.

“This is a unique opportunity to connect face-to-face with the top social media marketing experts in the industry, and to hang out with other like-minded professionals, many of whom you’re connected with online,” says Michael Stelzner, CEO and founder of Social Media Examiner. “Meeting these people and developing relationships opens up the kind of opportunities that simply can’t happen online.”

Marketers always have numerous opportunities to attend online events, but rarely do they get a chance to experience a one-of-a-kind physical event that delivers the experience of a lifetime.

Until now. Now the organization you trust for highly valuable content is bringing only the best presenters to its premier conference, Social Media Marketing World.

Social Media Marketing Meets ‘America’s Finest City’

Recognizing the need for actual face-to-face interactions among marketing professionals from around the world, Michael Stelzner and his team at Social Media Examiner have designed the largest physical social media marketing conference—Social Media Marketing World 2013!

This gorgeous setting will provide the backdrop for the historic mega-conference that will take place at the bayfront San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina on April 7, 8 and 9, 2013.

The conference is designed to inspire you with amazing content and empower you with the smartest social media marketing ideas and strategies.
