Taking over Calgary's East Village District

SocialWest is on the move and we think you’ll love this year’s location. Or should we say, locations! This year’s conference will take place in three different buildings in the heart of downtown Calgary, which happen to all be on the same block:  Platform Calgary, The Calgary Public Library and the King Eddy - part of the National Music Centre.  These unique buildings are pivotal to the success of downtown Calgary’s revitalization and we’re excited for you to see them in person. 

We know there are still many concerns with COVID-19 and the move to the East Village was also done with your safety in mind. Our multi-location event will have more possibilities to meet with fellow attendees in our venues' incredible covered outdoor spaces. It also ensures that sessions are taking place in newer buildings with modern systems designed to improve air quality (see SocialWest's terms for our COVID 19 policy).

We believe these buildings to be excellent for accessibility, but please reach out should you have any specific questions or requirements. 

Who Should Attend

SocialWest is an annual investment in professional development for people working in digital marketing, social media or communications who need to stay up-to-date on the latest and greatest in digital best practices, social customer service, and beyond.
