Slice Communications, a communications agency aimed at getting people to pay attention, today announced the headline speakers at Mashable’s Social Media Day in Philadelphia. The event, which is presented by Comcast, will be held on Thursday, June 29, 2017, at the Jewish American Museum in Old City Philadelphia.

Tickets for Social Media Day are available online and range from $125 - $200.

“We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with Comcast to bring Mashable’s Social Media Day back to Philadelphia,” said Cassandra M. Bailey, CEO of Slice Communications. “The speakers we’re bringing this year are world-class, and we know they will share insights and experiences our social media community wants. Last year’s event surprised us by selling out almost a month in advance, and if this year’s early bird sales are any indication we expect the same.”

Featured speakers will be Sean Lauer, Industry Lead at Twitter and Peter Weinberg, Strategist at LinkedIn.

Other high-profile speakers include Matthew Dickman, Head of Digital at Comcast; Amanda Lange, Technical Evangelist at Microsoft; Laura Carlucci, Senior Manager of Integrated Marketing at Wall Street Journal; Elizabeth Samet, Vice President of Branding and PR at Destination Maternity; Laura Wilson, Director of Digital Engagement and Social Media at Georgetown University; and Ross Hollebon, Director of Content at USA Football.
