Outdoor Display Space Available at the 2016 AUSA Global Force Symposium in Huntsville, Alabama

For the first time since moving this event in 2014, AUSA will offer outdoor display space at the 2016 Global Force Symposium & Exposition. This year’s event will be held March 15 – 17 at the Von Braun Convention Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

The 2016 AUSA ILW Global Force Symposium & Exposition will explore the capabilities outlined in the Army Operating Concept and how the force transforms from being adaptive to driving innovation for Force 2025 and beyond. Special guest presentations, coupled with panel discussions from our senior military and industry leaders, will address critical points of acquisition, research and development, and partnering between military and industry.

More than 170 organizations have already signed up to exhibit and we are expecting 5,000 people from around the world to attend, including key leaders from the Army, DoD and academia.

The outdoor display area will be located between the Arena and South Halls, just behind registration. This dynamic area will feature the U.S. Army STEM Asset (AS7), a 75-foot long tractor-trailer that includes an interactive science, technology, engineering and mathematics exhibit. The display is designed to showcase hi-tech capabilities and opportunities within the Army.

Organizations that wish to display static equipment may do so at the rate of $25.00 per square foot. To request space, please complete the attached contract and email or fax (703-243-2589) it back to our attention.
