Weather forces new date but fails to erode event content

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Fairfax County, Virginia – Social Media Week Fairfax, presented by the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) will take place October 18 at Capital One headquarters in Tysons Corner.

The one-day event, which promises to provoke rigorous discussion and debate about the changes in human connectivity through engaging, entertaining, educational and diverse content, was postponed last week due to safety concerns arising from the path of Hurricane Florence.

For the second consecutive year, more than 300 have registered to attend. The originally scheduled lineup of speakers and programs remains largely intact. Please visit SMWFairfax for an updated agenda, details and registration information.

All tickets sold are good for the rescheduled date. Please feel free to contact the SMW Fairfax team with any questions at SMWFairfax@gmail.com.
