We’re in the homestretch leading up to another awesome Social Summit. If you haven’t already secured your pass, register today! For those of you who are dying to attend but can't find the budget, enter our “Reach the Summit” Instagram Sweepstakes (running this week!) for a chance to win a trip to Summit and share in on all of the networking, learning, and good times.

If you were with us last year you know that there’s no other conference like it where big brands can learn and network with their peers and partners to advance their Enterprise-level social strategy. If this is your first year to attend Summit, buckle up – it’s going to be a great ride!

Here are top 5 reasons you can't miss the Spredfast Summit this year: 

1.  Arianna Huffington
We are thrilled to welcome Arianna Huffington to the heart of Texas. Huffington will keynote Summit, speaking on “Fearless Leadership and Social Media: Achieving business success in an evolving media landscape”. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet with Arianna, get a book signed, and snap your photo with her at our networking reception.

2.  High Impact Social Content
Our customers are from the biggest and brightest social brands and they want to tell you how they do it during our great panel lineup. Whether it’s Adam Kmiec from Campbell Soup Co discussing The Top 5 Social Initiatives for Big Brands in 2014 or Jennifer Kedin from Hyatt (which happens to be our Summit venue) sharing her expertise on customer care, you’re sure to leave Summit inspired and armed with strategies and tactics you can put to work when you get back to the office on Monday.

3.  Networking with the Best in the (Soc)biz
We don’t want to brag, but our customers are some seriously smart folks. The connections you’ll make at Summit this year will be invaluable to your professional social career. Be on the lookout for teams from ARAMARK, LinkedIn, Campbell’s Soup, REI, AAA and more!

4.  Spredfast Summit Bash at RIO
For those of you who have been a part of our SXSW festivities, you know we know how to throw a great party and we’re going all out this year! After sessions wrap on Thursday, we’ll take you over to Austin’s newest hot spot RIO. Party the night away with us on the rooftop patio that boasts the best views of Austin’s nighttime skyline.

5.  Seeing Austin outside of SXSW
On that note, get ready to see a local’s view of our great city. We’re not saying that SXSW is anything less than spectacular, it’s just nice to see Austin in the offseason.The live music capital of the world, some of best  BBQ in the country, and a host of other must-sees and –dos make our city a great place to be year round. We hope you’ll come in early or stay late for a chance to visit some of our favorite spots. Check out our Summit Bucket List Pinterest Board and our Summit travel page to see activities and restaurants that made our list of Austin favorites.
