Social Media Week Set for Feb. 7-11

Social Media Week announced the dates and cities for its next event, which will take place Feb. 7-11 in New York, London, San Francisco, Toronto, São Paulo, Paris, and Rome, with more cities to be added. Paris and Rome will be making their Social Media Week debuts, while the other five cities were part of the February 2010 event.

Organizer Crowdcentric said its 2010 Social Media Week totals were more than 450 individual events in 11 cities, drawing over 18,000 attendees, with more than 200,000 users connecting via online and mobile.

Local city partners include Entrinsic for Toronto, Chinwag for London, Sixpix Content for São Paulo, Swirl Integrated Marketing and Social Media Club for San Francisco, and La Netscouade for Paris.

Crowdcentric CEO and Social Media Week founder and executive director Toby Daniels said:

Over 90 percent of our content and programming is free and accessible to all attendees. We believe that access to high-quality learning experiences, business networking, and buyer/seller marketplaces should not be exclusive to a limited number of executives and organizations that can afford it.
