Online March 23-25, these industry leaders and fellow professionals across the U.S. are leading impactful sessions for a virtual learning experience for all levels of government social media professionals. New this year to GSMCON, speakers are also hosting demo sessions — hands-on, walk-throughs of specific tools or tech.

These sessions were originally part of GSMCON2020, which was cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic, and have been updated for 2021’s virtual conference. More speakers, sessions and keynotes will be announced as we continue to develop our GSMCON2021 program for this March.
