The 5th Annual Higher Ed Social Media Conference (Nov 29, 2017): the only online conference that makes attendees smile!

The Higher Ed Social Media Conference has been a big hit with the community since its launch in 2013.

Every year, several hundred participants working for colleges and universities in the US, Canada and the UK gather around big and small screens to attend this must-attend conference for higher ed social media teams looking for inspiration, advice and best practices to borrow.

Here’s a selection of some the photos taken by conference attendees during previous editions.

Are you noticing the “smiling pattern” on these photos? Yep, an engaged, happy audience at an online conference!

That’s why the conference is back for its 5th edition on November 29, 2017.

And, I need YOUR help to make it as good as (or even better than) the previous editions with your conference proposal(s) – yes, you have time, keep reading to know why!

Top 5 reasons why presenting at the #HESM Conference is even better than attending

I’ll give you 5 reasons to submit a speaking proposal (before Sep 20, 2017) for the Higher Ed Social Media Conference:

  1. it focuses entirely on social media in higher education, so you get to connect and interact with social media professionals facing similar challenges
  2. it’s a great way to get noticed by your peers, their bosses or even other conference organizers interested in social media (even if you’ve never presented before at industry events)
  3. it’s an opportunity to connect with top voices in higher ed social media
  4. it’s composed of 10-minute sessions, so – as a presenter and a busy social media pro – you can focus on the essential points (no extra fluff required) AND deliver a fantastic learning experience for attendees
  5. it doesn’t require a budget to present AND will even help you save some professional development money, because there is no need to travel AND presenters receive a free pass ($400 value) to attend the whole event WITH their team!
