Europe’s fastest growing social media conference, the Online Influence Conference (OiConf), is returning to Cardiff this month on the 30 March. The conference will see the heads of social and mobile from the UK’s leading businesses, including the BBC, Google and Facebook, provide insights into their cutting-edge digital developments.

Not only that but it’s running a competition to win a pair of exclusive Snapchat Spectacles – which are not even available in the UK yet.

“We’ve got some of the most talented global heads of mobile and social coming to Cardiff”


The main conference area is completely free to attend and all you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is sign up for a ticket and be there on the day for the prize draw.

paul-shepherd-oi-conferencePaul Shepherd, OiConf’s founder (pictured right), says: “Snapchat Spectacles are the coolest, trendiest wearable tech on the market today. Problem is, they’re completely unavailable in the UK. So if you want to be the coolest kid (or parent) on the block, snap up (no pun intended) a pair by grabbing a free OiConf Cardiff ticket and you’ll be automagically entered into our prize draw. We’ll pick a winner on the day so make sure you’re there to claim your pair. Instant cool.”

OiConf co-organiser Ashley Wheeler adds: “The one major benefit of OiConf is knowledge. We’ve got some of the most talented global heads of mobile and social coming to Cardiff, exploring everything from digital transformation to the emergence of innovative mar-tech and we’re really excited about helping major brands get to grips with the key challenges affecting their businesses.”

And if Ashley won a pair of Snapchat specs? “I’d use it as a perfect excuse to go on holiday and take some very enviable ‘hot dog’ photos on a lovely sunny beach. As for the business use, apart from OiConf, there is something a bit strange about a man walking around the office with sunglasses with a camera in them.”
