Social Media Week London: Introducing & Announcing SMWLDN Sept ’12 Hubs

With 180+ events taking place across London, it can sometimes be a little difficult to navigate and get between events. To aid this problem, this September we're introducing SMWLDN Hubs to London, where events topics and some of the best events will be grouped into venues during the week.

We're very excited to introduce five Hubs for this year's SMWLDN Sept '12 at some very cool venues, with more Hubs and their topics to be announced.

ExHoSo House

Exmouth House Social, formed as part of the Feb ‘12 Social Media Week London event, is a collaboration of digital and social agencies who practise under one roof, at Exmouth House, Farringdon.

For over a decade, Tempero has provided social media management for some of the world’s largest brands and organisations such as the BBC, Sony, British Airways, Activision, McDonald’s and many more. Our core services of strategy, insight, moderation and engagement come together to form the complete suite of elements required to run effective and efficient social media activity, 24/7 in over 15 languages.

Outside Line have worked in Social for 10 years. Our roots are in the music industry, where social currency and the creation of fans around a shared interest is the norm; this has allowed us to build a unique culture, understanding and way of doing things. We currently work with top social brands such as Cravendale, Lurpak, Budweiser and British Gas.

From online and offline brand experiences to interactive broadcast and branded promotions, we create concepts and executions that are designed for people to share and discuss.
