To book your free day pass ahead of the conference, simply contact our team and let them know you are a Social Media Week.

During the week we have a number of events running throughout our event spaces, if you would like to enquire about our meeting room space or conference area for hire, please contact us for availability.

Here are some Social Media Week Bristol events running at Origin Workspace:

Social Ethics – long overdue or the end of social freedom?

Should an ethical code govern how professionals and influencers use social platforms? If so, what might it comprise and how might it affect the behaviour of those operating in this space? Chaired by ethics guru Claire Walker, FPRCA, CEO Firefly Communications, a panel of experts will debate what best practice could, or should, look like.

June 13 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

I Like Big Bots And I Cannot Lie

In this talk, Norts, Co-founder of Tiny Giant will show how artificial intelligence (in all its many forms) can help deliver social media experiences that will leave your competitors sobbing like a charabanc of schoolboys who’ve just lost a sobbing contest.
