A hat-trick of events at Social Media Week


We’re excited to be hosting a trio of exciting events at this year’s Social Media Week London. Whether you’re a brand or agency side marketer, looking to learn or just have a bit of fun (or perhaps both), we’ve got something for you. Check out the descriptions below and click on the links to register. We look forward to seeing you there!

Live Tweeting 101

We’ll be delving into the world of live event coverage with Live Tweeting 101. Our Editorial team will be hosting a workshop focused around an area which has been particularly popular for our clients recently – how to use live event reporting to raise your brand’s profile on social.

The interactive workshop will be led by We Are Social Senior Editor, Sarah Hecks, previously a journalist at GQ, Men’s Health and the BBC, amongst others. Sarah will take your audience through how to spot live event opportunities relevant to your brand, whether it’s a press conference, a sporting event or a product launch, and how to activate a live event on social. Her workshop covers everything you need to consider, from choosing the right hashtag to getting the right team in place; from creating templates to spotting those ‘wow’ moments.

This is a must-attend event for any beginner to intermediate level social marketer, brand or agency. Click here to register.

Innovate or Die

We’ll be drawing Social Media Week London to a close with Innovate or Die, exclusive to Social Media Week passholders. In the fast-paced world of marketing, standing still is the same as going backwards. Innovation is a necessity, not a choice. Which is easier said than done.

This session will give you practical advice on how to innovate, or die (let’s shoot for the former). Come and see how We Are Social approaches innovation, what the greatest examples of innovative “social thinking”, taken from our monthly Curiosity Stop report, and Jeremy Basset from Unilever Foundry and Mark Adams from Vice talk about how innovation makes an impact in their businesses.

The Greatest Social Media Pub Quiz in the World, Ever

We’re also running an old favourite of ours. It trailblazed its way through the pub quiz scene last year, selling out in record time, and testing the social knowledge of the greatest in the business. We Are Social and Ticketmaster will join forces once again to host the famous, the incredible…. The Greatest Social Media Pub Quiz in the World, Ever.

We will once again draw inspiration from the weird and wonderful world of the internet, social media, GIFs and vines, it will test everything you think you know about cyberspace, whilst giving you brain food (beer and pizza) to boost your chance of being crowned champion.

The first round of tickets have sold out but there may be some more available nearer the time so keep an eye on our Twitter account.
