Event Details

Now in its 10th year, SMi Group are pleased to present the Social Media in the Defence and Military Sector conference, returning to London on the 18th and 19th November 2020.

MilSM-2020

This two-day event will involve a comprehensive view of the use of social media for military purposes. Social media has become increasingly important as a communication channel in civilian society, and the military sector is no different. It can be used as a platform for information and recruitment purposes, fulfil a welfare function for personnel keeping in touch with family and friends, and as a strategic communication tool for opinion-forming and psychological operations. Social media offers militaries fast, direct communications with their workforces as well as highly effective ways of communicating externally.

Join us this this November to learn from a truly global line-up of military and government speakers, meet your peers from around the world, and gain insight into the armed forces’ day-to-day activities from branding and recruitment to frontline operations, intelligence, and cyber warfare.
