What’s the story? Bristol to host Social Media Week with focus on responsible content creation

March 15, 2019

Global conference Social Media Week is to return to Bristol this June – the only city in the UK outside of London to be involved.

Bristol will be one of 25 locations worldwide to host the week, held previously in 2016 and 2018. On those occasions it included keynotes from Facebook, Buzzfeed, Twitter, Glassdoor and Yahoo, a 50-strong events programme attended by 2,000 delegates from more than 80 different brands and businesses and visitors from as far afield as the US and Dubai. 

The 2019 edition from June 10 – 14 will again provide a global collaborative and innovative platform to showcase the South West’s expertise as well as providing grass roots opportunities for networking, knowledge sharing and engagement with the wider business community.

This year it will also have a curated stream of inspirational events, talks and seminars on the theme of stories.

This theme explores the role of people who work in social media – content creators, journalists, marketers, technologists – and the responsibility they have to be truthful and real in all communication.

The event will bring together key players that contribute to that knowledge and also seek to facilitate collaboration with businesses and enterprises that have yet to fully realise the potential of social media.

It has events tailored to businesses and professionals who want to further their understanding of emerging technology, mobile and social media and sessions dedicated to those who are already at the cutting edge of new trends.

The event programme will be announced next month and tickets will go on sale soon afterwards.

Sponsors include Business West, Foot Anstey, Access Creative College and ADLIB. Agency sponsors include Fat Media, Fourth Floor Creative Co, Home, Noisy Little Monkey and Nomensa. Industry supporters include the DMA, PRCA, IPA and CIPR SW. Confirmed collaborative partners for 2019 are Destination Bristol, Bristol Media, and Enterprise Nation.
