Collaboration is at the root of SMW Lagos. We exist because of the amazing community of local innovators and thought leaders that have supported us for 5 years. It is your ideas that fuel this conference. That being said we need YOU to put your best proposals forward. Here’s your chance to take center stage with the likes of Facebook, Samsung, BBC, CNN, GE and much more.
2018 CONFERENCE THEME
The global theme for SMW 2018, “Closer,” will explore the intensifying conflict between community and individualism. The conversation will bring together a diversity of perspectives to discuss the most productive ways to harness these forces to drive innovation, improve consumer experiences and bring people together. SMW Lagos’ 2018 programming will in part focus on how technology drives individualism, while also looking at how platforms and apps bring people “closer” and foster community.
