What is #SMAC?

#SMAC Summit. This one day conference that features Teachers NOT Speakers™ is a digital communications learning environment for small business owners, media enthusiast and entrepreneurs. The SUMMIT features a mix of learning sessions that are created with a priority on facts, data, tactics and methods. In addition to the topic and summary, each session has a clearly stated set of learning outcomes to keep the sessions on track and meet the expectations of the attendees.

This #SMAC takes place on October 17th at the Jacob Javits Center in conjunction with the New York Business Expo & Conference aka NYXPO, the largest Small Business Expo in the New York. The #SMAC will run exclusive sessions in the main hall seminar room next to Tech Alley among the more than 200 Exhibitors at the NYXPO. While the special sessions are a premium ticket upgrade to the NYXPO, we’ll have a free section on the expo floor for authors and guests to do LIVE sessions of Marketing Made Simple TV and book signings.

As one of the most socially shared events for Social Media Week 2012 and 2013 globally, we’re excited to bring this event into a B2B show bridging the gap between business and digital media. We’ve learned a lot over the last two years and have an amazing experienced planned for this event.

Teachers NOT Speakers™ means you’ll get value, not just celebrities on a podium. That said, we promise will keep it fun and entertaining, after all, it’s not an experience if they just talk at you!
