The Government Social Media Conference is America’s first major social media conference for local, regional & state government. Since 2015, our conferences have brought in representatives from social networks including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Nextdoor and Google as well as platforms such as Hootsuite, Sprout Social and many more to connect with government agencies.
GSMCON2020 is canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as it was originally planned for Seattle, WA on March 24-26, 2020. We hope to bring the event to Seattle in the future. GSMCON2021 is scheduled for March 23-25, 2021 in Philadelphia, PAGSMCON SITE
The first-ever Social for Safety Conference brought together communicators representing law enforcement, fire service, emergency management and more to share social media best practices. S4SCON was designed to build a network of public safety communicators to explore everything from using social media for daily community outreach to using these networks during crisis for rumor control, sharing critical updates and sending help where it's needed.
S4SCON was held in Reno, NV from October 1-3, 2019. Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are considering a virtual event in the fall of 2020.S4SCON SITE
"GSMCON has totally been a game changer for TDOT. Since first attending the conference three years ago, we have created a social media culture within our department and continue to build our presence. We learned how to write an effective policy and strategy to facilitate agency goals via social media platforms... Discovering the latest, greatest tools and networking opportunities at GSMCON are invaluable. We look forward to the conference every year. It’s our favorite!"
