FAQ

 

Who attends
Social Media Strategies Summits (SMSS)?


What your boss (or financial guru)
needs to know.

How do I motivate my company to let me attend a Social Media Strategies Summit (SMSS)?

You’ll make them more money. How?

Summits allow you gain a fresh perspective on the most recent and valuable developments in the digital landscape. You’ll leave with tangible set of takeaways to impact conversion rates and increase sales.

You’ll be inspired by leaders who have cracked the system.
You’ll leave with tools, a new network and a sense of empowerment. In essence? You’ll become the change they need.


Are there discounts for sending a group from our company?

Absolutely. We appreciate a good deal as much as the next person. Group discounts available depending on how many team members you plan on sending. For specific pricing details, contact lauren.daigle@gsmiweb.com.


What is the difference between a workshop and a track session?

Workshops are 2-hour classes that take place the day before the general summit begins. Since they provide their own set of learnings, they are not included in the general summit registration fee. Workshops require separate registration and topics need to be selected prior to arriving to the summit. Workshops are smaller, more intimate and involve hands-on activities and discussions. The general summit is made up of a combination of track sessions (comprised of 45-minute talks).


Why should I attend a workshop?

Workshops allow you to ask instructors your most pressing strategic questions, in a group setting and via one-on-one interaction. Workshops also provide a space for you to brainstorm with attendees who are leaders in their own right.


What you (and your attending colleagues)
needs to know.

I registered online, but haven’t received email confirmation or a receipt yet. What should I do?

You should have received a confirmation receipt from info@gsmiweb.com immediately after your transaction is completed. Make sure to check your spam/junk folder. If there is a delay, please give us a call at 888.409.4418.


Do I have to choose one track and stick to it during the general summit?

Not at all. We create tracks so that you have the opportunity to customize your event experience and attend the sessions that are the most relevant to you and your team.

Stick to one track or hop around to different sessions (or send multiple team members to cover all tracks--and get the most bang for your buck!).


Are there discounts for nonprofits and government agencies?

Yes and yes. We have special pricing for our government and 501(c)(3) friends. Just be sure to use your .org, .mil, .gov and .edu email addresses when you register.


Will I have access to speaker slides after the event?

Of course. Once you are at the conference, look for the bit.ly link printed on your “Agenda-at-a-glance” sheet in your conference folder. The link will take you to the spot where you can access speaker presentations. We will also email you this link once the conference is over. Note: Look for GSMI staff on-site if you have any problems accessing conference materials online.


Where can I find accommodation information?

We have a set of rooms blocked for each event. Visit your specific summit page for detailed information on participation accommodation.

Note: Make sure to reference GSMI and the summit when you are booking your room to secure the discounted rate. Also it is important to take note of the hotel discount deadline. (We cannot guarantee discounts once the deadline has passed.)
