Special Operations Summit 2014:
Supporting a Stronger, Smarter, Changing Global SOF Community

The First Industry Update Since the USSOCOM Command Change!

SOF will play a crucial and expanding role in developing the capabilities of our international partners to thwart the spread of global terrorism and prevent hostilities from turning into major regional conflicts. With fewer conventional troops available and with help farther away commandos will need more effective intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and communications systems.

Now in its 7th year, Special Operations Summit is designed to provide a holistic overview of special operations advancements given the recent changes in Command and upcoming elections. This year's summit is built around a top to bottom outline of the special operations command structure and will focus on the overall mission goals directed to provide a holistic outlook for Special Operations, looking not just specifically at procurement. By providing insights from the various Special Operations Commands, attendees will be able to gain insights into the future roadmap of growing the global SOF network.

Join more than 250 fellow Special Operations professionals from over 80 different organizations to discuss and identify opportunities to strengthen local, regional, and global trust through interagency and partner cooperation.

New for 2014:

  • TSOC Panel Discussions and briefings from SORDAC
  • Keynote Presentation on Growing the Global SOF Network
  • Exhibit Hall representing capabilities critical to the SOF mission
  • International Representation to increase cross discussion participation
  • IDGA to donate to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation with every registration
