Social Media in the Defense and Military Sector


This event is now postponed to November 17-18, 2021


Social media has become an indispensable 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 fast, direct, and wide-reaching communications, so it is critical that public affairs professionals are properly equipped to make the most of what  social media has to offer.

Drawing on a wealth of expertise from military, government and industry, Social Media in the Defence and Military Sector remains the only truly global summit for communications professionals in defence. Join this community to learn from the very best, meet your peers from around the world, and accelerate your development.
