What attendees have to say...

"GSMCON has been an amazing learning and networking experience I’ve been fortunate to attend over the past five years. Due to staffing and budgeting, I’m allowed to attend one conference a year and I wouldn’t think twice about choosing GSMCON as the one. I always come back to work with a notebook full of new, innovative ideas that prove to be successful on our social media platforms. I’d highly recommend GSMCON for those looking to enrich their organization’s social media presence."  

Nicole P. City of St. Louis Park

"As government communications experts we must stay ahead of the curve when it comes to the ever-changing social media culture and attending GSMCON is the only way to do that. From best practices to insightful ideas, GSMCON is three days of learning and networking that consistently has a tremendous impact on what we do each day and improves how we tell our agency’s story."

"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!"
