"This year's Social Media Week was a truly global phenomenon-showcasing borderless brands and communications, via the power of social media."Bonin Bough,
Global Director of Social and Digital Media for PepsiCo
"Social Media Week does not disappoint. It is a real-world manifestation of some of the best that new technology has to offer - ideas, strategies and insights shared by the people who are shaping the future."Ellen McGirt,
Senior Writer, Fast Company Magazine
Social Media Week is like a collective mind getting in touch with itself -
an autonomous being reaching for new levels of intelligence. The facts everyone exchanges - though valuable - seem less significant than the acknowledgment we're all thinking and caring about the stuff that matters."
Based in New York, we help businesses thrive at the intersection of media, technology and communication. We do this through:
As a division of the organization, Crowdcentric MEDIA owns and operates Social Media Week, a leading news and publishing platform and worldwide event that captures, curates and shares the most meaningful ideas, trends, and best practices with regard to social media?s impact on business, society, and culture.
