JT Partners with Crowdcentric to Produce Social Media Week Chicago 2015
JT and Crowdcentric, the global organizers of Social Media Week (SMW), will partner to produce Social Media Week Chicago, which is scheduled for November 16-20, 2015.
Social Media Week Chicago offers a unique program that explores the intersection of social technology and creativity with a week of panels, presentations, demos, workshops, talks, conversations, and interactive events.
“The vast majority of the world’s population now communicates either in part or fully through social media channels,” observes JT CEO Rick Jasculca. “Yet, for many, it remains a mysterious and untapped frontier. That must and most certainly will change. The question is: who will be leading the journey, and who will be following? It is important that we begin now earnestly building a generation of leaders and innovators, who understand not just how to use social media, but how to direct and channel it in ways that benefit our global and local communities. Social Media Week enables the Chicago area to be part of setting that agenda.”
JT joins Crowdcentric and SMW in its mission to explore the global theme for 2015, Upwardly Mobile: The Rise Of The Connected Class, a year-long examination of how technology will impact that way we live, work and innovate in a connected world, and how new ideas and break-through technologies will lead to meaningful and productive changes in the way we tackle issues and pursue our careers and our life’s journey. We will work with Crowdcentric’s team over the coming months to shape a compelling agenda and events for this year’s conference.
