SMW, an Independent Social Media Week, provides community organizers around the world with the opportunity to host an independently organized event during one of the four editions of the Social Media Week conference. This year, due to popular demand and growing interest, Accra is thrilled to be participating in Social Media Week through the new SMW program.
Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas, innovations and insights into how social media and technology are changing business, society and culture around the world.
Human connectivity is being reimagined and SMW seeks to understand how humanity and technology will come together to change the ways we live, work and create. SMW hosts conferences on six continents, including Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Australia and Asia.
With over 70,000 physical attendees joining us every year, 5,000 speakers and more than 1 million people connecting through social and mobile, we believe that SMW is the world's most important source of information in regards to the future of human connectivity. Globally, the event has come to define each city’s experience and for Accra, social media has come to connect lives and introduce residents to each other in a way or the other. Hence, ACCRA IS CONNECTED!
