High-level programming and a unique level of intimacy attract decision makers to the AeroDef conference and expo, the premier event in aerospace and defense manufacturing.

Attendees can take advantage of multiple networking opportunities that put them face-to-face with hundreds of other attendees who are engineer-level and above, including owners and managers of small- to mid-size companies up to C-level and senior executives of top-tier manufacturing companies.

In 2019, more than 2,600 individuals from around the world gathered for four days in Long Beach, California, at AeroDef, aerospace and defense manufacturing’s most influential event, with 24 countries represented. The AeroDef 2019 exhibit floor spanned more than 22,000 square feet and hosted 199 exhibiting companies.

“AeroDef was a must-attend conference for anyone interested in aeronautical manufacturing,” said Kimberly J., Vice President of Sales, Flagship Facility Services. “The education sessions, speakers, workshops, tours and trade show were all top notch. As a first-time attendee and exhibitor we were wonderfully surprised at the turnout and the traffic at our booth. We look forward to [exhibiting] again next year.”
