"The amount of content being generated, shared and consumed online in 2017 is staggering," says Michelle Pinchev, Executive Director of Social Media Week Toronto. "With brands and publishers investing at an accelerated pace in data-driven, rigorously tested, sponsored content, the social space has become increasingly complex and competitive for marketers. It is essential to come together to discuss the issues and trends in the industry, otherwise we risk falling behind. More importantly, lifelong, career-changing connections are formed at SMWi Toronto – and this is Canada's only Social Media Week."
