Agenda released for the 6th Social Media Within the Defence and Military Sector Event

SMi Group (SMi Group) - 16 June 2016

SMi Groupís sell-out #milsocialmedia series returns this Autumn to explore Social Media as the vital tool for 21st Century communications in the defence sector

Registration is now live for SMiís 6th conference on Social Media Within the Defence and Miltary Sector which takes place on 14th and 15th November 2016 at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury, Coram St, London WC1N 1HT.

Social Media has become increasingly integrated into the fabric of military life Ė not only as a means of reaching out to a global audience for recruitment and information but as a new front in warfare. Thus, this high-level meeting provides a platform to discuss how social media has become a vital tactical tool on and off the battlefield - from educating soldiers and raising awareness of institutional issues to gaining support through recruitment campaigns and utilising digital communications as an overall new front in warfare.

Event attendees can expect to:
  • Discover a unique approach to both strategic communications and tactical use of social media on the ground during operations;
  • Learn from the military and commercial sector on how to create an effective social media strategy;
  • Discover how social media is intertwining with other aspects of warfare to create a multi-levelled war zone both in the real world and the virtual one; and
  • Explore how nations are using social media in new and innovative ways as digital communications becomes essential to the perception of military activities.

With the series' biggest speaker line-up to date, this year's agenda features leading military forces at the cutting edge of social media innovation from Canada, the Czech Republic, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom and the USA, and defence institutions such as NATO and the United Nations. Further details including a full line-up and conference agenda is available at
