A regular ticket allows admission to daylong conference and post-party, including two meals: continental breakfast and lunch, and a snack.

If you are not available on August 11, you can stream and download all 12-hour long seminar videos that will be available after August 25, 2017, and will cost $59.00.

Whether you are a chief executive officer, a marketing/communications officer, a content management professional or a blogger/social media professional, Y’all Connect will give you a wide range of opportunities to learn from the best in the social media sector, receive practical takeaways that you can put to use immediately, and experience southern hospitality. Some of the topics that were discussed in the previous year’s conference include innovation and change in social media, understanding the audience’s content need, and building relationships with bloggers.


As brands continue to find ways to build their reputation and gain followers, apart from natural methods, marketing professionals are turning to social media for their campaigns and initiatives. Attending conferences such as the Y’all Connect and partnering with the right marketing and advertising agency will give your organization the boost it needs to attract new customers and keep current client base.
