The Drum has already announced that the UK city for Social Media Week is to be Glasgow and we couldn’t be more delighted (I say we – I’m one of the people on the Advisory Board with Arvind, Tim and Daniela).

There are to be between 30 and 50 “free to attend” events going on in multiple venues around the city with big brand names, celebrities, panels, presentations, workshops – people travelling from far and wide to attend with specific elements being streamed to a global audience – really exciting stuff. It is not my place to divulge anything at this early stage but we are still on the hunt for more organisations to get involved, whether attending, providing sponsorship, support in kind and much more. If you’d like to get involved, have an inspired idea or want to recommend someone please get in touch – HERE.
