Special Operations Forces (SOF) Week is the newest expansion of the United States Special Operations Command’s (USSOCOM) cornerstone event, held annually in Tampa, Florida. Formerly known as the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC), this event brings together thousands of attendees from more than 100 countries. This year, SOF Week is taking place from May 8-11.
I look forward to attending this conference every year as it brings together experts from the defense industry, government agencies and our partner nations to discuss the latest trends affecting the SOF community and the capabilities needed to maintain a tactical edge over our adversaries. This week, I am attending workshops and panel discussions on a variety of topics related to strategic national security issues, the latest transformational technologies and even professional development.
SOF Week is an important event for organizations like AIS because it provides a valuable opportunity to learn about the latest developments and challenges in the field, which ensures we continue to be agile with our offerings. In addition, we’re able to network with industry partners to showcase our products and services that enable our warfighters.
