The Sixth Edition of The Annual Social Media Week Lagos is set to kick off from February 26 to March 2, 2018, with over 300 world-class thought-leaders, innovators, business practitioners and brand influencers mainly from Nigeria and other parts of the world.
Taking a look at the impact social media has had on individuals, brands and society in general, this year’s event under the theme ‘Closer’ will explore and use technology-driven topics to drive innovation, improve consumer experiences and bring people together.
