Social Media Week Lagos 2017 Holds On Feb 28 - Mar 3, 2017


The 2017 Edition of Social Media Week Lagos will kick off on Tuesday, Feb 28 2017. The week-long conference which ends on Friday March 3, will be held at Landmark Centre, a state of the art event space in Victoria Island Lagos, Nigeria.

Informed by Social Media Week’s Global theme for 2017, “Language and The Machine,” locally the SMW Lagos theme, “The [new] Language of Technology: The Future of Communication in Africa,” will explore how technology is creating a “new language” and way of communicating and what this means for the future of communication in Africa. Conference programming and content will look at how this “new language,” through online video, messaging apps, voice interfaces, and the like allows us to share our stories, share our competencies and increase our efficiencies.

The Social Media Week Lagos 2017 will be a mixture of keynotes, panels, workshops, and networking events/mixers that explore a wide range of topics including business, entertainment, education, technology and politics. The event will bring together thought leaders, key stakeholders and the public to explore issues that are important for the modern world. There is so much to learn from professionals and it is a perfect opportunity to network; see and be seen.

There are ton of sessions to choose from and I can bet that you will not be able to attend all.

Pulse Nigeria will host a panel session themed "How Digital Video Is Changing Us". The panel which includes  Blogger Sisi Yemmie, will explore the emergence of digital video in Nigeria and Africa. The panel will discuss how consumer behavior directly affects what's produced and how that content is distributed as well as how the migration from traditional to digital TV has encouraged short format videos amongst other topics.
