Social Media Week Bristol Announces Ambassadors

A dedicated website for Social Media Week Bristol 2018 (26 February – 2 March 2018) is now live. Register your details in order to be the first to be notified when the event programme is announced and tickets go on sale in January.

At the inaugural Social Media Week in November 2016, many events sold out quickly due to the quality of speakers including representatives from Buzzfeed, Twitter, Facebook Glassdoor and Yahoo. The 2018 edition promises an equally strong line up.  Expect keynotes from international industry leaders, knowledge building thought leadership seminars and practical sessions designed to help you take your social media skills to the next level.

“The sheer variety of event topics and the calibre of speakers submitted for review this year is outstanding. The programme will again be packed with over 40+ events. The way the marketing and digital community mobilises to make Social Media Week happen is absolutely testament to what a collaborative and ‘can do’ city Bristol is! ” Commented event organiser, Sarah Woodhouse, Director, Ambitious PR.

Event content for Social Media Week Bristol 2018 is in the process of being critiqued and curated by a stellar team of ambassadors whose role is to help shape Social Media Week Bristol and support the organisers. Ambassadors include Dan Martin, Head of Content at Enterprise Nation; Dan Izzard, Online Editor of Crumbs Magazine; James Ainsworth Head of Content at Prophecy Unlimited; James Caig Head of Strategy at True; Jess Siggers, UK-based photographer, content creator and Instagram influencer; and Shonette Laffy a prominent Bristol blogger and Social Media Manager at Visit Bristol.
