Social Media Week is a worldwide event exploring the social, cultural and economic impact of social media. The mission is to help people and organizations connect through collaboration and the sharing of ideas and information.
Social Media Week hosts two global conferences each year. Each conference takes place simultaneously in multiple cities around the world, with thousands of individuals and organizations working together to host panels, workshops, talks and industry networking events. Yearly SMW hosts 80,000 people at more than 2,000 events in 26 cities around the world.
For the first time ever, Social Media Week is coming to Lagos! Nigeria has emerged as an epicenter of business, art, and technology for the African continent. With over 94 million mobile phone subscribers Nigeria boasts the highest number of internet users on the continent and ranks 10th in the world! Today Nigerians are using social media to share their lives, engage with one another and make connections around the world.
At present, there are 84 events scheduled and more will be added as very exciting evening events will soon be announced.
Social Media Week Lagos is truly history in the making and we invite the world to take part.
