Social Media within the Defence & Military Sector

Date: 19-20 November 2015
Location: Holiday Inn Kensington Forum, London, UK

SMi Group are thrilled to present the 5th annual Social Media within the Defence & Military Sector conference, taking place on 19th and 20th November 2015 in Central London.

Social Media within the Defence & Military Sector bannerAs cyber-attacks increase and extremist groups become more pervasive through sophisticated use of social media, we are entering into a new age whereby national security is not only determined by physical warfare and diplomatic reasoning but also by an increasing dependence on digital capabilities.

Following on from the huge success of last year’s sell-out show, the only military focused social media event in the market returns to London this Autumn, to gather a global audience of leading militaries and defence institutions shaping the social media landscape from NATO HQ, US DoD, European External Action Service, Royal Netherlands Army, Defence Media Agency, Department of National Defence, Allied Powers Europe, U.S. Army plus many more!

Join us as we ask questions such as:
  • What lessons can the defence industry learn from the private sector?
  • How can social media be effectively utilised for military recruitment?
  • How can we respond to new threats from extremist groups?
  • What has been the impact of social media in military operations?
  • How is digital capacity built in developing countries?
  • Does open source intelligence impinge on human rights?
  • How do we reach and engage our target audience in 2016 and beyond?
