THINK. IMAGINE. CREATE.

Think you know social and digital? Think again.

And rethink your idea of a conference while you’re at it. State of Social is back, and in 2020 we going to light up your digital mind.

Social and digital are evolving. Your strategies should, too.

Digital and social marketing is changing. Continuously. Relentlessly. So, applying the same-same strategies doesn’t cut it anymore. If you want to get ahead, you need to use your head. You need to think.

Think for yourself. Think strategy, not just tactics. Think about the why, not just the how. Out-think conventional thinking and your competition.

At State of Social ’20, you can expect an even longer list of thought-provoking thought leaders, all squeezed into day one, followed by a series of cerebrum stimulating seminars to supercharge your digital and social strategies on day two.

Prepare to fire up those neurons…
