Social Media Week Dubai

Social Media Week Dubai is part of the biggest global conference that brings together thought leaders and practitioners to explore how social media and technology are changing business, society and culture around the world.
For the first time in its history, Social Media Week took place in the MENA GCC Region in Dubai in November 2016. The aim of #SMWiDubai was to bring together the city’s most digitally active, engaged and influential Social Media users for an Event which featured Master Classes, Panel Discussions, Networking, Keynote Speakers and a prestigious awards ceremony.
As a first time event in the region, SMWiDubai needed to:
  • Grow an engaged audience of Social Media Users
  • Attract the best speakers and industry experts
  • Generate a buzz
  • Promote the event both before, during and afterwards.
We provided Social Media Week Dubai with Social Media Strategy and Marketing, Website Design & Development, Content Marketing, Event Planning and Hosting Services.
We attracted speakers from Google, Twitter, Hootsuite, Microsoft, Nissan, Etisalat, Lenovo and the Dubai Government.
During the course of the event #SMWiDubai became the number 1 trending hashtag on Twitter, garnering over 212,900 impressions. Over 85,000 people talked about the event on Facebook.
“Virtual Solutions are simply outstanding. Nothing is too much and this attitude thoroughly makes them an invaluable extension of any team as they truly go over and beyond!
We achieved the no 1 trending event on Twitter, 84,000+ people talking about is on Facebook, regional recognition for a 1st time event, Social Media Week Dubai #SMWiDubai in such a short space of time and resources through sheer commitment and dedication.
I look forward to part 2 and the continuation of our journey.
Thank you!!!”
