This Independent Social Media Week Event Kicks Off on June 6th

From June 6th to 10th 2016, Toronto will host SMWi Toronto, joining major cities around the world with an independent Social Media Week event dedicated to digital technology and the social realm.

On June 7th, SMWi Toronto 2016 will feature a keynote from Trend Hunter President Shelby Walsh, who will be speaking on Creating a Cultural Connection: The Three Ways Marketing is Changing.
