What're you doing June 7? You might want to cancel it and consider attending the Social Commerce Summit instead. The early bird registration is $249, which might sound steep, but it'll grant you access to founders of Fortune 500 digital marketers, investors from across the country and the founders of buzz-worthy e-commerce startups will be there to talk all about everyone's favorite topic: social media. Friends of Inc. Well like Lifeway Foods' Julie Smolyansky and Lightbank's Paul Lee -- and many others like Birchbox's Katia Beauchamp and Threadless' Cam Balzer -- will be on hand to speak about emerging trends in the intersection between e-commerce and social media. The shebang will take place at Venue Six10, which is at 610 S. Michigan Ave. Better hop to, since early bird won't last forever.
