Glasgow will this week join 11 other major global cities in hosting Social Media week. Glasgow will sit alongside other major business destinations such as Berlin, Moscow, Milan, LA and Vancouver in hosting the event.
The event, which is to host 120 gatherings, the largest away from USA since the event began, is designed to attract everybody. All facilities as well as the event itself are free to use and attend.
Many major organisations will be attending the event, with names such as Google, Nokia and CNN being represented. There will be a wide variety of events on show, with one of the highlights being virtual wine tasting on Wednesday.
A crowd generated audio book will be produced free of charge after the event. The organisers are seeking out a narrator during the week. Anyone wishing to audition can do so by reading a piece of Burns. If successful the applicants will be shortlisted and have to read some Scottish prose and poetry. All applicants must not have done this professionally before.
The event will take place from 19th – 23rd September.
