Held every October in Washington, D.C., the AUSA Annual Meeting is the largest landpower exposition and professional development forum in North America. The Annual Meeting consists of informative presentations, panel discussions on pertinent military and national security subjects, workshops and important AUSA business meetings.

Since 1950, the Association of the United States Army has worked to support all aspects of national security while advancing the interests of America’s Army and the men and women who serve. This year the conference will be held 13 – 15 October at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

The annual meeting promises:

  • Over 500 Army & Industry exhibitors occupying more than 250,000 net square feet of exhibit space
  • Key personnel. Attendees in recent years have included the Vice President of the United States, the Secretary of Defense, the Chief of Staff and Secretary of the Army
  • Professional development. Forums are held throughout the three days for soldiers, NCOs, officers, Army family members and industry executives

Back in February, AUSA held its 2014 AUSA Winter Symposium and Exposition, in Huntsville, Alabama. The event was a huge success.

More than 5,700 people attended the symposium that was held for the first time at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville. The show had more than 200 exhibits with the latest in military technology offerings, as well symposiums with panelists from around the country. AUSA President Gen. Gordon Sullivan told the press that Huntsville’s inaugural turn as host of the Winter Symposium and Exposition was nothing short of “world class.”

The attendance in Alabama was more than four times the number than last year’s event which was held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. AUSA officials said they believed that moving the show closer to a major military installation would encourage participation. They seemed to be right. Not only did the number of attendees grow, the volume of participation from those at the meeting also increased.
