Welcome Message

The 2022 NATO Communicators Conference is just days away! This year’s programme is packed with relevant content which will be delivered by dynamic expert speakers. We have planned key discussions on: deterrence strategy, the Russia-Ukraine war, partnerships, NATO’s New Strategic Concept, effects and targeting, innovation, information assessment, digital, and much more! To help protect our environment, we will minimize the printing of materials for the conference. Please download an electronic copy of the conference agenda here. You can find biographies on our speakers and distinguished attendees here.

The host of the conference is NATO’s newest Ally, North Macedonia. The beautiful and historic capital Skopje is a wonderful venue, and we are certain you will enjoy your visit. During the evening of Wednesday, 7 September, the Government of North Macedonia has invited all conference participants to a hosted tour of Skopje Old Town and ice-breaker reception which will be held at Kuršumli An, an important historic site from the 15th Century. We extend our sincere appreciation and thanks to our Ally, North Macedonia, for hosting this important NATO conference. You can find helpful maps here and important administrative instructions here.

It is not too early to begin thinking about the 2023 NATO Communicators Conference. We are currently accepting offers from Allies to host this prestigious event. Please connect with Allied Command Transformation colleagues at to discuss the possibilities.

It has been 3 years since our last conference, and since that time our world has experienced significant change: a global pandemic, Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, energy concerns, food insecurity, and the ongoing impacts of climate change. NATO continues to adapt to meet these challenges, with a new Strategic Concept, and new strategies for deterrence, defence, and the future of warfighting. Strategic Communication is central to all of these concepts. We look forward to gathering with you all, and reflecting on the pivotal role our communications community plays in enhancing Alliance unity and cohesion, bolstering NATO’s legitimacy, assuring Allied citizens, and in deterring all adversaries.

An important reminder, check with your mobile provider about rates associated with calling, data, and texts while outside your home countries. In some cases, these charges may be significant.

See you in Skopje!
