Social Media Events Calendar – Winter 2008

Social Media Events Calendar – Winter 2008

As promised, I am continuing the round up of social media and new media events for Winter 2008. There is a lot of excitement about the social media space right now, which means a lot of events and meet ups to choose from.

One exciting trend in the new media universe is a trend toward giving back and reaching out. There are more and more fundraisers and other events popping up geared to helping others, which makes me feel good about being a part of the social media space.

Another trend is a rise in localized events. Now there are more and more large conferences to choose from, seemingly in competition with each other. In reality it simply offers people who would like to find an enriching event or learning experience more local options that are a bit easier on the travel budget, something that is beneficial to everyone.

These new trends coupled with some old stand bys mean that everyone should find an event that will help them in some way this season. Without further ado, I present my version of the Social Media Master Calendar. Please, if you have an event I missed, use this post as a place to link it in the comments for all to see.

    Hi Leslie,
    Thank you so much for listing the SanFran MusicTech Summit. However, the Summit takes place on October 20th, as opposed to the 15th and 16th as listed above. If you could correct this, it would be very much appreciated.
    Thank you very much!

    Thanks for using the comments as a resource! That’s fantastic!
    Todd, I *knew* I had forgotten something local around that time and for the life of me couldn’t think what it was. I’m glad you popped in to let us know 🙂
    I’ll submit the correction to the editor here for the MusicTech summit, also.
