Highlights of #SMMHK Part I

Social Media Matters is all that matters today!

Over 650 delegates, 250 brands and 30 speakers from across the regional are here at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong to examine how social media is becoming a powerful business tool and to unlock the insights that will generate business results.

Here are the highlights from the morning sessions.
