Social Media is officially a social phenomenon, transcending age, gender and creed. I am part of it. You are part of it. But is that really enough? The World Bloggers & Social Media Summit allows you to find out what and who is driving this trillion-dollar industry and how you can benefit from it.
The other day I was invited to the soft launch that was held in the trendy atmosphere of Luna Bar, Pacific Regency Hotel Suites on the 27th of April 2011 to commemorate the upcoming and much anticipated event, which will be held from the 15th to 16th of June 2011 at the Dewan Tun Hussein Onn, Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur.
Mr. Shahul Hameed Dawood who is the Organising Chairman and Group CEO of MyEvents International was on cue to speak on the nature and benefits of the Summit with regards to the impact and revolutionary changes bloggers and in particular the social media has brought about in the way we communicate and transact commerce. He also gave a preview of what’s in store for the upcoming Summit and revealed some of the prominent speakers at this event who have succeeded in using these real-time tools to its maximum social and commercial potential. Curious about the speakers? You will find them below, but hey, if you’re not too lazy go download the full brochure here: [download id=”5″]
I guess those who are serious about taking their businesses to the next level and even novices should come and learn how to harness the power of social media to further their brand reach and impact. This could be your only chance to get up close and personal with leading minds in social media and pick their brains whilst receiving practical tools to build and grow social media strategies. For me, knowing them via Twitter isn’t just enough to make an impact- score some brownie points by meeting them live, and allow the chemistry to sink in and who knows, one of these guys could be your future business partner in this lucrative industry!
If you think this summit is just about local speakers, you thought wrong: the summit will also feature prominent speakers from abroad, who will share on what’s the latest social media methodologies that are pushing the boundaries of commerce. Some prominent celebrity bloggers from Malaysia who have made a name for themselves in the local and international blogging and social media scene as well as some of the nation’s renowned bloggers such as our ex Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and BN Youth Chairman, Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar aka @khairykj will appear as guest speakers.
I am definitely going not only as one of Malaysia’s relatively known blogger (well, they did invite me to come :D) but also as a business owner of SocialGrooves.com, which is a social media consultancy specializing on NGO
and NPO projects, with immediate attention to growing and engaging a community database as opposed to purely marketing endeavors.
