Annual Social Media Day returns to Phoenix

On Tuesday, June 30 from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Social Media Day Phoenix (#SMDayPHX) will be returning for its 6th annual celebration of all things social media at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel. From learning about content creation and specific social media apps, like Instagram, to tools to assist with engagement and hearing from local influencers, attendees will enjoy a full day of activities in open forums, ending with a happy hour and networking party.

Hosted by QtheBrand, a Phoenix-based digital marketing agency specializing in social media, SEO, web development and branding, owner MoniQue Hoffman states, “We’ve expanded the event format this year to really delve deep into some trending topics that were of particular interest to attendees. There will be something for both novices and social media experts alike, but the main goal of the day’s events is to bring the local digital community together in an offline atmosphere to celebrate everything we love about the online experience.”

As an event first created by tech giant Mashable in 2010 as a way to celebrate and highlight the ways social media and digital innovation have come to define a generation and make an impact on global communications, #SMDay has since grown into a worldwide celebration.
