From SMSS Website: The Social Media Strategies Summit is coming back for it’s annual summit in Vegas, February 10-12, 2015. Check out these 7 great reasons you should join us for some learning (and Vegas fun.)
1 – Choose from 7 information-packed pre-summit workshops
Our 2 hour workshops are a unique opportunity to work with smaller groups of attendees and learn in-depth about the social media marketing challenges that mean the most to you. Since our workshops stay small, our speakers are able to tailor their content specifically to the workshop group’s needs. We work hard to create a great environment for insightful discussion and engagement. Check out workshop options here.
