Social Media Week LA

SMWOne of the great things about living in Los Angeles is that you are never at a loss for great events, especially those in the tech industry. LA is going to be on event overload next week, which is totally fine. While most people have to leave town to go to a great tech conference (hello, SXSW and New Media Expo), this is one week where Los Angeles has a great conference of its own, Social Media Week LA.

Social Media Week runs September 23 - 27, and is in Los Angeles, Chicago, London, and more. Many of the events are streaming, so check the schedule even if you are not in one of the host towns.

For those who live in LA, here's a sample of some of the fabulous Social Media Week events. Although there are some events on Sunday, September 22 and Saturday, September 28, I just stuck to Monday - Friday schedule.
