Military Influencer Conference Relaunches in Las Vegas

 After a two-year hiatus, the leading military-focused event for entrepreneurs, influencers, executives, and brands returns in-person

Las Vegas, Nev (July 21, 2022) – Military Influencer Conference (MIC), presented by USAA and powered by Instant Teams, has announced its relaunch in Las Vegas. After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, military service members, military entrepreneurs, civilian supporters, military spouses, and influential leaders from across the world will gather at the Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World from October 26-29, 2022.

This annual conference, now in its fifth year, celebrates the intersection of the military-connected community, economic opportunities, mental health initiatives, technological advances, and social impact. Over the course of the three-day conference, attendees will have the opportunity to engage with experts from national brands and service organizations. The in-person conference provides engaging programming, networking opportunities with innovative brand partners, and the Mighty 25 Gala, a celebration of the top 25 changemakers, advocates, and influencers in the military space.

“It’s been over two years since we’ve experienced the benefits of the camaraderie and face-to-face interactions that come with gathering the military community,” said Curtez Riggs, Founder and Director of Military Influencer Conference. “We’re excited about the opportunity to relaunch the event with a renewed focus on the current and future topics that are most important to our community, and how we’re navigating these issues amidst the lingering effects of COVID-19.”

More specifically, the event will focus on helping individuals, organizations, and brands leverage MIC’s resources to grow their impact. The ability to be in Las Vegas, which has a huge military presence and opportunities for more veteran support, allows for a unique opportunity to create local partnerships and broaden our collective reach. Attendees will be able to participate in over 100 sessions within eight content tracks presented in various formats: Content Creation and Marketing, Hiring from the Military Community, Founders and Innovators, Web 3.0 and The Metaverse, eCommerce and DTC, Mental Health and Resiliency, and Social Impact Partnerships. This year MIC will also launch Instant Teams’ brand Untapped. The Untapped sessions will feature dynamic speakers and content specifically designed for military spouses highlighting topics including financial wellness, entrepreneurship, and remote work.

“As active-duty military spouses, we are proud to equip our workforce with remote jobs, allowing them to move globally with their service members,” said Liza Rodewald, Founder & CEO of Instant Teams. “For the past five years, Instant Teams has provided thousands of remote job opportunities and improved the financial well-being of military spouses and veteran families with millions of dollars of dual-earner income. We are honored to continue investing in and empowering our community by launching our ‘Untapped’ series at MIC.”

Additional programming includes: MIC’s inaugural Comedy Night, hybrid activations, and competitions rewarding entrepreneurs with over $175k in funding and resources.

MIC Las Vegas is also sponsored by Caliber Home Loans, Comcast NBCUniversal, Armed Forces Insurance, Organized Q, Johnson & Johnson, United Through Reading, PCS At Ease, JDog, FiServ, and Triple Nikel.
