Frequently Asked Questions

The Government Social Media Conference (GSMCON) is the only major social media conference in the United States for government agencies. Everyone interested in learning how to strategically use social media in government is welcome to participate. Our primary audience includes city, county and state government in the U.S., public safety and we also see a strong presence from federal government, military and education. International and private industry are also welcomed to participate.

Virtual GSMCON2021 will be held during the originally scheduled dates, Tuesday, March 23 - Thursday, March 25, 2020. Workshops and a special virtual welcome reception will happen on Monday, March 22.

We look forward to hosting an amazing virtual experience that’ll be accessible to even more of our community. GSMCON will still be an experience filled with valuable training, networking & camaraderie — just now virtual! Our event will be hosted on our platform, integrated with Zoom and Ecamm Live as the backbone for most sessions. However, once participants are logged on the event site, they can view the sessions directly on the page and won’t be required to log into Zoom or any other service.

Some speakers will be returning, plus several new sessions. A lot can change in a year in the social media space, so speakers with still relevant topics and topics that can be updated were asked to participate in virtual GSMCON2021. We also ran a call for speakers and have several new unique sessions for the 2021 lineup.  

No, the awards will be held in summer 2021. We’ve heard from many in the community that having the last Golden Post Awards during July 2020 was a great experience and gave many something to look forward to during the summer months. Due to the positive feedback, we’ll be holding the next Golden Post Awards during summer 2021 as well. Please join our newsletter for further updates on the entry period.
