Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon B
500 E 4th St

Social media has the power to end careers, create diplomatic nightmares, fuel revolutions and even help find kidneys. Everywhere we look, social media activity is changing lives and industries. There are few places this change is occurring more rapidly than in the equities markets, where trending social chatter can cause major market movements.

Analyzing the current effects of real-time social data on the markets, this diverse panel of industry leaders will teach attendees how to spot, interpret and benefit from social chatter analysis; panelists will also discuss what’s next, as big data technologies continue to disrupt the way we live, play, work and invest.
