Introducing LaterCon: A Social Media Conference by Later

LaterCon is back — and it’s bigger and better than ever before!

There’s a lot that goes into building your brand on social media in 2020 — trends move fast, new tools and features are constantly being released — and creating a well-rounded, future-proof strategy is key for your success.

So to help do just that, this September 23rd we’re bringing you a host of live speaker events from +25 experts who live and breathe social media to share their tips and brand secrets.

All totally virtual. All totally free. Seriously, you won’t want to miss this!

Why Attend LaterCon?

Here at Later, we know social media.

And as part of our commitment to share the latest social marketing tricks and trends, we decided to do something big to build on these foundations.

Last year, we hosted our first ever LaterCon virtual conference, but we decided to big bigger for 2020!

With a goal to help you be on top of your game and to confidently build your brand on social media, we’ve teamed up with some of the best voices in the industry.

The best part? No waiting in lines. No expensive passes. No travel. Just all the best strategies from experts & brands you know and love.

That’s right – we’re doing it virtually!

It’s like a marketing conference, except you don’t have to leave your office (or house) or wear a name tag.

And, we’re covering it all – whether your goal for 2020 is to gain more followers, boost business sales, or to build a beautiful aesthetic, we’ll be teaching you how to set down a strong foundation for your strategy.

So get ready to grow your account, gain a loyal following, and build your business online.

You won’t want to miss this. Just sign up below to get your free LaterCon ticket!


What’s a Digital Conference? 

Digital is kind of our thing, so you can expect all the same perks of a regular conference,  delivered directly to your screens.

While a digital conference brings a ton of convenience, we don’t want you to miss out on any of the benefits an in-person event can offer.

LaterCon attendees will also be able to tune into live Q&As, score VIP merch, and network with attendees (using the hashtag #LaterCon), for a totally ~IRL~ digital experience.

Make sure to save the date and tune in on September 23, and watch sessions as they’re released in real-time.

And just like attending a conference, you can choose which sessions you want to attend, ranging from content creation, social media psychology, engaging storytelling, and everything in between!

What Will I Learn?

Don’t expect any generic (or worse, outdated!) social media marketing advice here!

Our +25 speakers are sharing advanced strategies that actually work, with real-life examples to prove it.

You’ll be getting advice from real practitioners — from the strategists behind your favorite brands to influencers with over 1M followers —  as all of our speakers are the ones posting, engaging, and optimizing their accounts every single day.

We’re also diving into the specifics with panels and sessions specific to industries and the size of your business.

Whether you’re a global brand, a small business, e-commerce store, or a passionate creative, we’ve picked speakers with expertise tailored to you!

Plus, we’ll be sharing a first look at the major upcoming social media trends in 2020 and beyond, so you’ll know what to expect, and what skills you might need to start learning to stay ahead of the game.

Our #LaterCon speakers understand the power of Instagram marketing to grow businesses and make an impact on your bottom line.

Stay tuned & sign up to the Later newsletter to be the first to know about our speaker line up and session announcements!
