It's time to get ready for SMX West 2016! This year's event is fast approaching and ConventionNation has the social media buzz you need to hear to prepare! If you missed our posts in the last two weeks, we covered our favorite speakers at SMX West, so be sure to check those out as well.



There’s been a lot of buzz on social media leading up to this year’s SMX West event. The two most talked about are the #JanesOfDigital and the #GoogleDance.

The Janes of Digital panel is a brilliant group of women who work in the digital space and are holding a networking event to discuss equality of women in technology. It is a casual evening intended to bring together women to discuss the issues they confront working in the tech industry.

This evening includes a Panel Discussion sandwiched between cocktails and networking for a more intense discussion. The topic covers the “International Women’s Day: The Pledge for Parity” discussion. This evening received great feedback last year at SMX 2015. It is free to SMX 2016 attendees who register to attend, and is sure to provide women with a collaborative environment and great networking with other tech industry women.

Google Dance is the other hot topic trending on #SMX social media. This is also a repeat activity for SMX West, and is a crowd favorite. The highlight of this event is that it takes place at Google’s Mountain View, CA headquarters. Transportation is provided from the SMX venue to Google for the first 500 All Access pass holders that register.

This event is a homage to where search marketing began. It is historically a great evening of networking, speakers, and shenanigans at the Google headquarters. There are Google executives in attendance to learn from and rub elbows with, along with activities, food, drinks, and networking. If the night gets wild enough, there also may acutally be dancing going on at the #GoogleDance.



We’ve gathered up our favorite conference attendee tips from around social media just in time to get ready for SMX West. You won’t want to miss these, as they are sure to make your event the best experience it can be!
