Ahhh! We’re sold out. Damn. Yep, we’ve had so many people RSVP to our Tumblr and Vice event that we can’t actually fit any more people into the venue. So, if you HAVE RSVP’d and you can’t come, please let us know on Twitter or via our Eventbrite so we can release more tickets.

#SMCMelb presents: Marketing to Millennials – Vice and Tumblr
Social Media Club Melbourne returns for 2016 with a bang! This special free event will focus on social media marketing to millennials.
We’ll be joined by VICE, the world’s leading youth media company specialising in creating, distributing, and monetising original content globally. VICE’s capabilities stretch into just about every aspect of modern media and their 360-degree approach ensures that they not only create the content, but that they also distribute, promote, and sell it via their network of advertorial sites.
Their ‘Meet the Millennials’ presentation combines insights from their proprietary survey (the largest of its kind), editorial teams and user analytics to understand who are Australia’s youth as they move into adulthood and what their relationship is with media, culture, brands and each other. For marketers it is an essential primer in how to connect with this elusive audience, why they matter, and how they are redefining ‘cool.’
SMCMelb will also be joined on stage by Tumblr, who late last year launched their first office in Australia. Tumblr’s keynote we’ll explore how Millennials on Tumblr using the anonymity and creative environment of Tumblr to define themselves through content. The talk will dig into what content really matters to this influential audience and how brands can take a truely authentic approach to content creation and play a much more valuable role in their lives.
There of course will be the usual networking opportunities, tweet steam, live Q&A session with the panel, and drinks available for purchase at the bar. If you, your agency, or your company is marketing to millennials through social media, then this event is a must for you!
