More than just the stomping ground for TikTok's latest dance craze or those FOMO-inducing Euro holiday snaps, social media and the wider digital landscape's influence on culture and business is impossible to ignore these days. And boy does it move fast! Whether you're working in the industry or trying to carve out a successful side hustle, keeping on top of the changing digital trends is kinda non-negotiable these days. Thankfully, State Of Social is making it a whole lot easier to get ahead of the game.
The 2-day conference dives deep into all things digital marketing, with inspiring keynotes, intensive breakout sessions and hands-on workshops that will break open the latest trends and set you up with the skills and smarts needed to navigate whatever’s thrown your way.
They’ve roped in big names from Reddit, Sked Social, Storyation, Nextdoor and even Urban List’s very own CEO, Susannah George, to spill the sort of career-defining wisdom you won’t find on Google—with action-packed sessions covering everything from content creation, community building and branding to PR, marketing strategy, client comms and more. You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to rub shoulders and build valuable connections throughout, which let’s face it, is often where the biggest career breaks come from.
Bottomless barista coffees, morning teas, snacks and lunches are all included in your ticket too, plus access to special events and surprises, and of course, the wildly popular sundowner drinks sesh that we totally won't end up having one too many at.
State Of Social lands at Perth's Optus Stadium on Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 August, with in-person and online conference passes available if you can't commit to the trip out west. Scope out the program and sort out tickets before last-minute pricing kicks in.
