What Our INTERACT Summit Is About:

It's an exclusive one-day gathering of social media’s thought leaders. Join us to hear the latest and greatest in social media measurement, to learn from the experts and to expand your social network. Before machines can learn, before AI can fashion insights from predictive analytics, data must first be collected and aggregated. The INTERACT Summit will help you simplify the complex.

Why It's a Great Idea to Be There:

The aim is to inspire you to bring courage, creativity, and hard-won insights to your company. We all need to cultivate brand resilience in a constantly changing marketplace. We all need a thorough understanding of what the “best in class” social brands do differently than everyone else. And we all need direct access to each other’s intelligence.
