Defense Logistics and Support Conference

October 25-26, 2022- Washington, DC, United States

Getting Beyond Disruption: The Future of Logistics

Our inaugural Defense Logistics & Support Conference will provide a vital platform to learn, share and connect with your peers and counterparts to ensure that the US can build agility and resilience into defense-critical supply chains through the adoption of emerging technologies and close collaboration with industry.

In the wake of significant events such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the Ukrainian War, vulnerabilities in defense-critical supply chains have been exposed and the defense industrial base has been notably impacted. Key decision-makers must therefore convene, enbaling the crucial discussions necessary to ensure the innovation and advancement that can augment Warfighter readiness in a rapidly evolving and contested environment.

Applied through the lens of technology, this event will identify those elements that buy you time, mobilize your force and optimize Warfighter readiness. Within that, we will take an in-depth look at the modern innovations and solutions that address the movement, processes, resourcing, sustaining, and redeploying or reallocating of materiel and personnel, as well as identify the critical gaps that we need to get ahead of - ultimately helping to prevent the erosion of supply chains and aiding operational logistics dominance in the United States.

We look forward to welcoming you in Washington, DC on October 25-26, 2022!
