The Social Media (R)Evolution

The social media revolution has occurred, but the risks and rewards for businesses who use it continue to evolve.

While there is no question that social media is a powerful tool for reaching current customers and attracting new business, it can also raise concerns about intellectual property, privacy, government compliance, crisis communications and many other important issues. Due to its pervasive influence, companies must be prepared to anticipate – and respond to – its implications.

Please join us for Mayer Brown’s annual symposium, The Social Media (R)Evolution. This year’s two-day program, featuring in-house peers from multiple industries and government agency representatives, will focus on the opportunities, risks and emerging best practices associated with social media.
