Who should attend SMIATL?

The Social Media Integration Conference (SMIATL) attracts hundreds of marketing professionals with diverse backgrounds in digital, interactive, public relations, advertising, sales and customer service. As the only annual conference focused exclusively on the topic of integrating social media across platforms and business functions, the event offers a variety of opportunities for networking – attendees will rub elbows with some of the top minds in social media.

But with so many social media events out there, how do you know if this is one you should attend? Check out our “What You Need to Know” post, and read on for answers to some common questions about who should attend:


Q: Can I hop around among the beginner, intermediate and advanced sessions?

A: Absolutely. Most of us are more knowledgeable on some topics than on others – the schedule has been designed with this in mind.


Q: I know I need to learn more about social media, but I’m such a beginner most events are over my head. If I come to SMIATL, will I be lost?

A: We’ve put effort into making sure there is plenty of content for true beginners. In particular, you’ll want to check out the Beginner Bootcamp on Friday afternoon, which is designed to give newbies the on-ramp they need to really understand and use social media.


Q: I’m often bored at social media conferences because I’m an advanced user.

A: Because SMIATL focuses exclusively on the topic of social media integration, you won’t hear the same old presentations that populate other social media conferences. We’ve also ensured there are high-quality sessions solely for advanced professionals, really digging deep into case studies, tools, and tactics relating to social media integration.


Q: Is this an Atlanta-only event?

A: Not at all. Attendees from throughout the southeast region and across the country have already signed up. We have a special rate of just $114 for the conference hotel – see the Travel Info page for more.


Q: At $160 the cost is unusually low for a full conference – does this mean the quality will be too?

A: We know the price is deceiving! Because SMIATL takes place in the academic setting of Kennesaw State University, our speakers have agreed to help us make this conference as affordable as possible for attendees.


Come see speakers  who often charge twice our conference fee just for a one hour seminar! Bring your questions, and leave with actionable advice you can use immediately. Register for SMIATL 2011 today.
