ABOUT

About Kalamazoo Digital Media Meetup

Since 2009, the focus of Kalamazoo Social Media Week has been on developing, sustaining, and elevating social media talent throughout our community. We bring together industry thought leaders, local experts, and aspiring social media professionals for gatherings that are both educational and inspiring.

 

In 2022, we transitioned to a new name: Kalamazoo Digital Media Meetup. This name was formed on the basis of expanding our reach to not only cover social media topics but also digital media- covering a wider range for local professionals to capitalize on. Our annual conference is among the most affordable professional development events in Southwest Michigan, allowing individuals of all backgrounds and skill levels to benefit.

THE ONLY SOCIAL MARKETING EVENT IN SOUTHWEST MICHIGAN

“The variety of content was great. Not everything applied to me, but I could take bits and pieces from most presentations and make them applicable to myself. I learned a lot of new things!”
