Nov. 4, 2010 - PRLog -- New York, NY: Social Media Week returns to New York this February 7-11, 2011 and organizers Crowdcentric are inviting individuals, organizations and brand partners to ‘Get Involved’ in the curation, planning and organization of the weeklong event.

In addition to New York, this February’s Social Media Week will also take place in London, São Paulo, Toronto, San Francisco, Rome, and Paris, plus two to three additional cities soon to be named.

Social Media Week New York is produced by Crowdcentric, together with individuals from leading New York media and emerging technology companies like Deep Focus CEO Ian Schafer, Barbarian Group CEO Benjamin Palmer, Morris + King CEO Andy Morris, BBH Innovation Director Saneel Radia, New York Times Social Media Manager Stacy Green, and Caroline McCarthy of CNET.  The advisory board and host committee are primarily focused on providing leadership and guidance on Content Curation, PR & Communication, Diversity, Editorial, and User Experience.

"Social Media Week is about intellectual discussion of the evolutionary changes occurring in the ways we communicate, and how we create, share, and discover content,” said Schafer.  “I'm involved in Social Media Week because we all share the responsibility of moving ourselves and each other forward with the help of the platforms we participate in and have helped build.  Great ideas and inspiration have come out of each previous Social Media Week; this year's yield will be unprecedented."

In addition to expanding the size and scope of the program and conference experience, the organizers are also launching four “Content HUBs” focused around four basic areas of content: people and society, art and culture, business media and communications, and science and technology. Each HUB will be located at soon-to-be-announced venues featuring daily events throughout the week.

As an open and collaborative platform, Social Media Week provides many ways to ‘Get Involved’ including curating and hosting events, speaking and presenting, designing workshops, facilitating interviews, sponsoring events, providing editorial coverage, and volunteering to participate on the local host committees.

Past event partners have included New York Times, who hosted three events for Social Media Week 2010 at their Times Center in midtown New York focusing on the intersection of social media and journalism, sports entertainment, and the ways social and mobile media support post-disaster news gathering and reporting; IDEO, who conducted a social experiment event that explored how technology has affected the way individuals interact with one another, on- and off-line; and Pepsi, who hosted an event at The Paley Center for Media focusing on the way major brands plan to connect with audiences of the future through social engagement.

Other prestigious brands that have been involved in Social Media Week New York as partners since 2009 include JWT, Financial Times, MoMA, Condé Nast, WIRED, Time Inc., Booz & Company, Whole Foods, Sony, Microsoft, MTV, Porter Novelli, Razorfish, and Saatchi.

Toby Daniels, Founder & Executive Director of Social Media Week and CEO of Crowdcentric, said, “Social Media Week is predicated on an open-source model of curation and participation, where content, programming and events are made possible by the brilliant ideas and hard work of event partners and free access to it all is made possible by generous financial support from brands like PepsiCo, Meebo, Vodafone, Samsung, Nokia, and SalesForce.com.  We believe that access to high-quality learning experiences, business networking and buyer /seller market places should not be exclusive to a limited number of executives and organizations that can afford it.”
