International Fighter USA 2020 Summit

Washington, DC, United States


Following its powerful inaugural iteration in 2019, our International Fighter USA 2020 will bring an updated and even more expansive look into the most important component in dominating the sky and winning the future battlespace.

With the Under Secretary of Defense, 10 US Generals and SES from across the services and 9 senior global allies,  the speaker faculty for the 2019 event was second to none and provided local and international perspectives that delivered a unified message - Air dominance can be maintained not through one line of same fighter capabilities, but through full integration of existing capabilities across allied nations while developing an interconnected, technologically superior next generation of fighters.

Listening to the needs and priorities of our forces and allies, our International Fighter USA 2020 summit is once again designed to bring cutting edge perspectives from prominent decision makers to address the leading themes in global fighter priorities from USAF, DoD and international allies and provide answers to the challenges of 4th and 5th generation integration, next generation fighters, multi-domain joint operations, multi-generation fighter interconnectivity, light attack capabilities, loyal wingman, future mounted weapons systems and more.

Join us this July 29-31 in Washington D.C. for direct access to briefs, panels and over 10 hours of networking with the biggest names and the leading partners advancing fighter capability and strategies to maintain global stability. This is your opportunity to take an active part in shaping the present and future of our skys.
