Social Media Influencers Summit (SMIS) will be staged first this year and will be an annual event organized by iNewMedia Online in cooperation with Cebu Bloggers Society, Inc. (CBSi).
The organizers behind the SMIS is excitedly planning the 2013 summit set on March 16 at JCenter Convention Center of JCenterMall at Mandaue City, Cebu
We are happy and honored to annouce that prominent social media personalities and thought leaders will be the resource persons of this event.
We are expected to convene more than 300 social media influencers and users to share best practices from top industry leaders, set ethics and standards for users, and promote social media responsibility.
THE THEME: “#TrendingForward”
The attendance of the first summit is expected to be diverse as they will be coming from the academe, youth sector, business sector leaders, and government institutions. Their attendance, however, will be united by one goal: “Trending Forward.”
The summit’s theme is the summation of two words: “Trending” + “Forward”
“Trending” means “the general direction in which something tends to move.” Each individual or company may have separate goals, but the ultimate goal of any “Social Media Influencer” is to create a buzz for its cause to make it appear on the “trending” topics of the social media networks.
“Forward” is being used to depict the innovation/presentation that each social media influencers should do to reach and influence the target audience. Buzz is not created by all. It is practiced by those who had mastered it. And this craft is fast changing with the dynamic preference and attitudes of the social media users.
