@chinwag @digitalmission #DMNYC14 NYC 2014 :about Digital Mission :about Social Media Week Digital Mission is a series of trade missions organized by Chinwag for UK-based small and medium sized firms operating in the digital sector. Social Media Week is a worldwide event exploring the social, cultural and economic impact of social media. Our mission to help people and organisations connect through collaboration, learning and the sharing of ideas and information. The missions support UK digital companies to expand internationally, understand foreign markets, attract investment, find partners and develop business relationships. The fifth Digital Mission to NYC is taking place from the 17th - 21st February 2014 will co-incide with Social Media Week New York. 02 03
Welcome UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) is pleased to support this mission of UK technical and social media businesses to New York. UKTI have worked with two partners; Chinwag and Like Minds, to bring to New York some of the UK’s most interesting and high-growth businesses to investigate and share new ideas, to get an insight into doing business in the US market – and of course to meet new partners and customers. The businesses here offer products or services that are world-class and we believe will be more likely to fulfill their potential by engaging positively with the US business community. They are on an action-packed and highly stimulating week of workshops, visits, presentations and networking opportunities – a phenomenal learning experience that is unique to Social Media Week plus New York.
