AeroDef® Manufacturing is the leading summit and exposition for the aerospace and defense manufacturing industry. Produced by SME, in partnership with an executive committee of industry OEMs professionals, our mission is to foster innovation across the extended enterprise to reduce costs, expedite production times and maintain manufacturing competitiveness in the global economy.

The AeroDef Manufacturing Summit gives attendees exclusive access to the most important people in aerospace and defense manufacturing today. Our Exclusive Keynote Speaker, Featured Speakers and Executive Insight Series panel discussion participants come from the highest level of business and government. They come to share their vision of the potential of technology, collaboration and public policy to transform manufacturing – concepts that attendees can actually experience on the exposition floor and in our in-depth technical conference sessions. Attendees are encouraged to interact with speakers, presenters, exhibitors and each other through our opening Take Off! event and AeroDef® Afterburner.

The summit and expo showcase the industry’s most advanced technologies across an innovative floor plan designed to facilitate interaction and business relationships between exhibitors and buyers looking for integrated solutions. At the center of the floor is The Deck, the hub of activities at AeroDef Manufacturing. Link here for event hours and location. Watch videos about AeroDef and learn more about Long Beach.
