We are thrilled to present the 5th annual Social Media within the Defence & Military Sector conference, taking place on 19th & 20th November2015 in Central London.

As 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 previous sell-out shows, 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.

Reasons to attend:

  • Assess the latest social media platforms and cutting edge trends in engagement
  • Hear about the most creative social media strategies implemented by leading international military organisations
  • Understand how to use social media as a powerful tool to galvanise support, engage, retain and recruit
  • Attend the interactive workshop hosted by the Former Foreign and Diplomatic Editor for Sky News, Tim Marshall
  • Learn about the current methods and future trends of terrorist social media activity
