Participation is Power


Shaping the future of aerospace is no simple task.

 

Shaping the future of aerospace takes passion, discussion, innovation, collaboration, and most importantly, it takes YOU! And, AIAA forums and expositions are catalysts for inspired idea exchange, progressive problem solving, and industry innovation.

 

AIAA forums draw almost 8,000 participants from 88 countries around the world, including more than 2,000 students. Engineers and scientists from industry, government, and academia share more than 5,000 of the latest research and development findings that will shape the future of aerospace.

 

Make plans now to participate as a speaker, presenter, sponsor, exhibitor, or attendee.

 

  “Your return on investment will be high. The multiple opportunities you have to advance your career personally by learning, to advance your career professionally by networking...is worth the price of admission.”
   —Lt. Gen. Larry D. James, USAF (Ret.), NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
