Social Media Within the Defence and Miltary Sector 2017 will yet again bring together a global audience of  senior defence, military and commercial experts to discuss how social media is being increasingly intertwined within operations. Key themes will be explored - from raising innovative campaigns that showcase the latest solutions and products in the market to lessons on educating soldiers and raising awareness of institutional issues as well strategies for recruitment campaigns and utilising digital communications as an overall new front in warfare.
