AerospaceDefenseChain Conference

The 2nd Annual AerospaceDefenseChain will focus on key components affecting our industry and future programs as we seek to balance changing customer demands, global market conditions, macroeconomic challenges and A&D industry consolidation. Emphasis will be on forecasts and pursuing sustainable growth opportunities plus new initiatives.

Key Issues Within the A&D Industry
   • Budgets & Policies
   • Programs & Market Trends
   • Innovation & Technology

The Supply Chain View
   • Forecast & Planning
   • Consolidation: M&A
   • Strategic Sourcing: Productivity

The two-day Conference is supported by decision leaders within equipment manufacturers and suppliers that support the supply chain for the defense industry, program managers, business and corporate development and marketing executives, market analysts, investment bankers and financial institutions.

The Conference will provide attendees with high caliber presenters, valuable information, and business opportunities for everyone with a vested interest in the A&D industry. Delegates will walk away with new tools, information and relationships that support their organization's growth opportunities.
