Northern Ireland’s leading social media event is back

  • The Social Media Belfast Conference is back with a hybrid event on Wednesday 22 September 2021!

    Now in its 7th year, the Social Media Belfast Conference is Northern Ireland’s leading social media event.

    The conference focuses on all things social and will help guests learn and innovate with over 200 fellow marketers. 

    This year it will be a hybrid event held both online and at the Europa Hotel in Belfast.

    More than half the world’s population (3.96 billion people) now use social media, with a massive jump in social media use seen during COVID-19 lockdowns across the world. Fuelled by the need to connect in a safe environment, social media is today an essential element of any communication strategy.

    In addition to this, attendees will also be invited to explore and discuss topics such as: key trends, social consumer engagement, how to generate revenue through social media and how to brand with impact.
