Events in English at the Social Media Week Hamburg 2016

Can you believe it? Yes, it’s that time of year again: the Social Media Week Hamburg. Whether speakers flown in from abroad or natives appealing to an international audience, there are quite a few events in English. So to make it easier for people whose German is a bit flaky and who need a quick overview of the English-language events, here’s a listing. It’s up-to-date as of 8th February but is subject to change. Don’t forget to register for events via the SMW website and check there for definitive information.
