This year’s Social Media Week has already been launched and it is set to take place from September 25 to September 27. The Social Media Week Accra 2019 event is happening at the Multi-choice office, Silver Bird Cinemas, and the Accra Mall.
This year’s event has been themed “Stories: With Great Influence Come Great Responsibility”. It is aimed at letting the participants discuss the various formats of putting the Ghanaian story out there.
The organisers, in a press release, said:
“We are all producers of content and stories, as social media has given all of us a voice; but we have to be responsible with the same level of influence we have. The theme Stories is tag lined ‘With great influence comes great responsibility.’
“We the organizers of this year’s social media week have created educative, entertaining and informative formats for brands, the press, the arts and creative industry, influencers, digital and tech enthusiasts.”
“This year, we will be introducing segments that enforce intentional networking (so you don’t have to participate and then be struggling with networking and connecting) you will definitely leave with a contact that will help in your personal development, business, and that creative idea.”
The following are what the organisers of the Social Media Week Accra 2019 want to use the event for.
- Build relationships between small businesses
- Present a positive Ghanaian narrative.
- Educate patrons on the digital usage of social media as a formidable creative and business tool.
