Social Media Week - Chicago

In 2017, we will explore our global theme “Language and the Machine”, which examines how algorithms are shaping human language communication.

The event will feature two stages, including a 500 person theatre and a workshop stage that seats 100, co-working lounges, speaker AMA lounge, VR showcase, technology vendors, food trucks providing complimentary lunch for all attendees and an opening party to kick-off the week’s activities.
