DMC 2020 POSTPONED to 2021

Thank you for your interest in Defense Manufacturing Conference (DMC) 2020.

We have been closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and there is much uncertainty of the future with the virus, travel restrictions and other factors. Due to this, and after careful consultation with our Government and Industry partners, we feel the best way to proceed with Defense Manufacturing Conference (DMC), scheduled for 7-10 December in Orlando, Florida, is to postpone the meeting to 2021 to protect the health and safety of our staff, attendees, exhibitors, and speakers.

Over the course of the coming weeks, we should have secured a new date and we will update the information on this website. We will be reaching out directly to our Exhibitors and Sponsors to discuss the new date and the wishes to transfer booth/sponsorship.

We thank everyone for their understanding and look forward to bringing you together for DMC in 2021!

Please Stay Safe!
