LIMA, OH, UNITED STATES, May 20, 2022 / -- An explosion of technology has changed how people interact with and experience the internet - from marketing automation to digital workflows, technology is making it easier to share your message online. With this ease of access, we often find our messages lost in the noise of online chatter. During the Social Media Week Lima 2022 conference - “CoCreation - How to Expand your brand in the Multiverse by Customer-Based Co-Creation Experiences” we will be exploring the latest topics and trends as they relate to the Metaverse, NFTs, the Future of VR in Business, Future-proofing your Brand, how to 10X Your Influence and more.

SMWL is celebrating its ninth year and has grown from a small online conference to the largest social media conference in the midwest. With more than 250 attendees, the conference will feature 30+ influential speakers from around the globe, local business leaders, networking opportunities, and numerous vendors. Hosted by NOW Marketing Group and President Jessika Phillips, featured speakers include Brian Fanzo, Judi Fox, Kim Garst and Matt Johnston, local business leaders include: Sarah Kelsey - Rhinestone Lipgloss, April Spencer - Spencer’s Sugar Shop, Andrew Wehri - 1820 BrewWerks.

“My motivation to create a local conference was to bring a next-level experience to our hometown so area businesses could stay ahead of the curve without spending big city prices to do so," said Phillips. “I’m super honored that Social Media Week Lima not only has grown into the largest social media-focused conference in the Midwest but is also listed as one of the top 20 social media conferences to attend for business growth. I couldn’t put this on without the help of all the local businesses that are willing to donate space, products and time to make our event successful!”
