The Air Force Association’s annual Air, Space & Cyber Conference kicks off Sept. 14 with Air Force Secretary Barbara M. Barrett and Chief of Staff Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. The annual conference, which will be held virtually this year for the first time, runs through Sept. 16. Chief of Space Operations Gen. John W. “Jay” Raymond speaks on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
Conference attendance is free for military members and defense civilians, and rates for industry participants are discounted for AFA members (and from traditional rates for in-person participants). Registration is open now and space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
Other speakers include Secretary of Defense Mark T. Esper, the senior enlisted leaders of both the Air and Space Forces, and more than two dozen panel discussions featuring Air Force, Space Force, and industry leaders. A virtual industry expo and opportunities to schedule meetings and win prizes are also included.
With the theme “Aerospace Nation: Air, Space & Cyber Forces in the Fight,” the event will present the best opportunity this year for Airmen, Space Professionals, defense civilians, and industry leaders to gain direct insights into the plans, policies, and vision of Air Force and Space Force leadership, as well as emerging trends and developments in aerospace technology.
