AFA’s Air, Space & Cyber Conference is going virtual. AFA reached this decision only after carefully considering the current and projected state of the COVID-19 pandemic, guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, directives from the State of Maryland and Prince George’s County, and feedback we have received from prospective speakers, attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, Airmen, and Space Professionals.

AFA’s virtual Air, Space & Cyber Conference (vASC) will continue AFA’s long tradition of hosting the premier event for defense and aerospace professionals around the world. The conference will offer the same exceptional line-up of speakers, world-class (virtual) exhibits, professional development opportunities, and important interaction between and among industry, government, the media, academia, and the public.

vASC 2020 will be held in mid-September and will provide Airmen, Space Professionals, and industry leaders direct insights into the plans, policies and vision of Air Force and Space Force leadership, and emerging trends and developments in aerospace and cyber technology.

You can expect:

  • The multi-day conference to include updates from Air and Space Force senior leaders as well as on-demand sessions covering topics on air, space, and cyber forces in the fight
  • A virtual exhibit hall with options to meet with exhibitors and learn about the latest developments in aerospace and cyber technology
  • A robust event platform offering attendees the opportunity to engage through virtual meetings with other attendees
  • Details on registering for vASC, how to participate, how industry can showcase their capabilities, and many more topics will be available soon. Please check back here for more information.

A special note to AFA Delegates and others who planned to attend the AFA National Convention (usually held on the weekend preceding AFA’s Air, Space & Cyber Conference):

A decision on the AFA National Convention is pending. The AFA Executive Committee has recommended to Board of Directors that the 2020 AFA National Convention be cancelled. The EXCOM is recommending that AFA’s national elections be conducted virtually. And in the absence of Convention, efforts are underway to develop a virtual event for AFA Field Leaders and members to engage in leadership and professional development and fellowship, and to receive important updates from Department of the Air Force and AFA leaders. More information will be provided in the coming weeks.
