The Air Force Association’s Air, Space & Cyber Conference will return as a live, in-person event Sept. 20-22 at the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, Md. With most COVID-19 restrictions now lifted by national, state, and local authorities, we can once again look forward to greeting each other in-person this September.

A full agenda of speaker presentations and a robust technology exposition will greet thousands of visitors. AFA is working closely with the Department of the Air Force leadership to create a truly memorable event for Airmen, Guardians, and their industry partners in celebration of the 75th Anniversary of AFA’s founding. 

AFA's Air, Space, & Cyber Conference is the leading professional development event for Air Force and Space Force officers, enlisted members, civilians, veterans, and defense industry leaders and representatives. Our conference brings together top Air Force and Space Force leadership, industry experts, and government officials to discuss challenges facing the aerospace and cyber communities today and in the future. 

This year’s conference celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Air Force Association and will build on AFA’s successful recent events featuring record-breaking attendance and past speakers including the Vice President of the United States, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, Elon Musk, Sir Richard Branson, Jeff Bezos, and Mark Cuban.

AFA will offer the option for in-person and virtual attendance. Both in-person and virtual registrants will have access to AFA’s platform. Depending on your registration level, you will be able to view our attendee guide, award winners, exhibitors, speakers, network with other attendees, and much more. Attendees who register for the full conference sessions can view the live stream or watch on-demand when recordings are posted.
