  1. 1. 10th September 2013 Grand Hyatt Hong Kong Wrap Report www.socialmatters.asia
  2. 2. What is Social Media Matters? •  Social Media Matters has cemented its position as Asia’s highest level business event created for brands and by brands. •  Bringing together major global and regional social media platforms and brands at the forefront of driving innovations in consumer engagement, the event showcases how leading advertisers unlock the insights behind creativity and data to generate business results. •  Aimed to critically examine the use of social media as a powerful business tool, Branded, Asia’s premier events company and Social@Ogilvy, Asia’s most awarded social media team, partnered to produce this unique senior level event. Social Media Matters is one of the best digital and social media events organized in Hong Kong. The quality of the presenters were good, with relevant insights from different industries and players in social media. Pierre Abadie Lacourtoisie Regional Director, Digital & Online, Estée Lauder
  3. 3. Summary   •  In 2013, the second annual Social Media Matters attracted over 900 attendees made up of 700 senior executive delegates and 250 fans. •  Over 80% of the delegates comprised of leading advertisers, controlling regional and country marketing budgets. •  The #SMMHK hashtag was a trending topic with over 5,000 conversations about the event. •  The received extensive international media coverage in over 30 publications including Financial Times, Bloomberg, Wall Street Journal, South China Morning Post, Prestige, Campaign Asia Pacific and many more.  This event is definitely in a high-end category as it provides a good platform for networking and attracting the top drivers of the region. I very much like the unexpected guests and events, like this year McBarbie07 and the spontaneous gathering of young fans, from which brand builders can learn a lot in the social space. Hannelore Grams Head of Digital & Social Media, Greater China, Nestlé

  5. 5. Showcasing the Power of Social Celebrity   •  The event hosted Bethany Mota, one of the most successful YouTube stars in the world with over 3 million subscribers and 300 million views on her YouTube channel (Macbarbie07). •  A single tweet from Bethany prompted more than 2,000 fans to sign up to meet their star. The lucky first 250 teens were invited to meet her at the event. •  A show within a show, the Beatlemania-style reception of Bethany by her fans brought home to all attending the power of celebrity built only within social media. •  A video of Bethany at the event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBtV0B_D5Ak Thank you so much for bringing me to meet Bethany!

  9. 9. What did attendees say? Social Media Matters stepped up the APAC social media conversation like never before, providing thought provoking and engaging content for those brands, social platforms, media and agencies that attended. I can't wait for #SMMHK 2014! Barbara Iliopoulos Social Marketing & Community Manager - Asia, Middle East & Africa, InterContinental Hotels This was a stellar event, bringing together brand, marketing and platform leaders from around the world to shape the future of social.   Laura Balkovich Head of Social, Asia Pacific, Google James Kondo Managing Director, East Asia, Twitter Social Media Matters is one of the best industry events in Asia. The event is very successful at addressing the issues of using social media as a business tool and is the key yearly gathering of the leading global thinkers, practitioners and marketers. I always make it a point to attend.   Social Media Matters is THE social media conference in Asia. Its the only conference where they get all of the top players from all over Asia and Silicon Valley together for an extremely intense day of speakers and sessions… Social Media Matters only gets the best of the best in terms of speakers and crams in 20+ speakers into one full day that leaves the attendees drinking from a firehose in terms of learning so much in one intense day. Tom Clayton CEO , Bubbly
