Relationships. Technology Showcase. Innovation.

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

AeroDef® showcases 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. Our keynote speakers and panelists come from the highest level of government and business. 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 conference sessions. It’s the one event that brings together high-concept, integrated solutions and real-world applications.


The AeroDef® exposition floor is laid out by Tech Zone to give you comprehensive perspective of the extended manufacturing enterprise – from design, to production, to sustainability. At the center of it all is The Deck, a large area that is a crucible of activity, including keynote addresses, panels and network events.
