Local Social Summit: “Connecting with Consumers where Local meets Social”
Local Social is the first and only summit for leading media owners (directories, news, TV, radio and social networking), retailers and advertisers who are driving digital innovation in the local and social media space across Europe. We think this "local content meets social media" is an important area, and one that is under-explored. The conference will look to open up debate across multiple industry sectors. With a focus on what works and what trends are emerging as local and social media continue to change how consumers engage with brands, content and each other.
