Calendar of Social Media, Tech, & B2B Marketing Events

School may be out for the summer, but for marketers and businesspeople, class is still in session. The next couple of months are a perfect time to catch up on the latest trends and technologies, and to acquire some new tools for social media marketing. Perhaps you will even have the chance to visit some very exciting cities while attending these B2B marketing events!

During the summer months, while others may be resting, it’s a wonderful time to get serious about growing your social media presence, blog engagement, or website following. If you are using social media for business, you should seriously consider attending at least one of these conferences!

For local Sacramentans, the Metro Chamber of Commerce always offers some fantastic business mixers and workshops. If you are looking to travel, the events marked in green take place all across the nation.

Take the time to expand your network by meeting with others who work in, and understand your industry. Learn something interesting, secure new resources, and perhaps even embark on an exciting business endeavor.
