The 6th Annual Higher Ed Social Media Conference (Nov 28, 2018): 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 20 photos taken by conference attendees at the 2015, 2016 & 2017 editions. Please scroll down through them to answer a quick question

Are you noticing the “smiling pattern” on these photos?
Year over year, it’s consistent: the audience is happy and engaged. No small feat for an online conference!

That’s why the conference is back for its 6th edition on November 28, 2018.

And, I need YOUR help to make it as good as (or even better than) the previous editions with your conference proposal(s)

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 19, 2018 – next Wednesday) 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 – don’t believe me? Read these presenter stories from 3 of your higher ed colleagues)
  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 ($500 value) to attend the whole event WITH their team!
