Here is an update from within the curating team.
5 days to go for SIME Stockholm. Lots of final fixes, magic touches being added (they call it “organised chaos”) but this year SIME is shaping up better than the last 10 years. Yes, it has been 10 years since SIME came into our hands from the previous patrons, and we are excited to take this landmark Scandinavian event into the next decade soon!
For those of you who have your SIME passes already, get ready for 2 days of business opportunities, networking, inspiring speeches, amazing food, short coffee lines and epic parties. We will follow up with some house keeping stuff for you to get the most out of SIME very soon. For those of you who are still on the edge of getting to SIME, here is a sample of our 10 reasons you shouldn’t miss this year. If you are still not sure, tell us why, may be we can help you.
2000 people, but you are all very unique to us
There are very few spots left, but one thing is for certain. We do not care about quantity as much as we care about whether each of you have got maximum bang for the time spent. We have such a fantastic mix of people from all over the spectrum that we know its going to be a melting pot of ideas, thoughts, old friends and new business partnerships to be forged.
We have amazing speakers, but which conference claims not to?
While as with any conference that claims to have the best of the best speakers, which we are happy to have, we also take pride in the way we run SIME. We like to think of the format as the MTV of conferences (compared to lets say a CNN type conference, which is great but may be doesn’t entertain you as much). We believe in careful curation of speakers, thorough interviews and preparation before they show up on stage, well moderated workshops, amazing summits and not to mention 2 days of parties.
Over 50% keep coming back to SIME. We are very grateful
But most importantly, we believe during these 2 days, you are going to grow your business, directly or indirectly. In the past, millions of Euros have been raised by start ups, partnerships with large media co’s, telco’s have been struck. Do not believe us? Well, we have over 50% of attendees that keep coming back year after year – our cohorts are super loyal. We also have Schibsted as the sponsor for years, and their group likes SIME year after year.
The digiphysical boundaries are blurring
If you are shy, and do not know who to talk to, download our app and there you find all the delegates that you can connect with digitally and in real life. We are trying to break the barriers between digital and physical as much as possible so you get the maximum juice for your business. As with any event, put in a few cents and you should get spades worth of money back. We think SIME is going to be amazing for you.
Welcome to SIME Stockholm next week. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy putting it for you.
