Media Information

The Air Force Association’s Annual Air, Space & Cyber Conference is an exciting opportunity for members of the media to attend the one-of-a-kind conference focused on the United States Air Force. Media are able to attend the conference and explore the exhibit floor free of charge, however registration is required. Both a photo ID and a business card will be required for on-site media registration.

AFA accepts media who work for a news organization or agency, i.e., print, online or broadcast. Freelancers must be able to present valid media credentials. For example, Capitol Hill and Pentagon credentials are acceptable. If you are a member of corporate media or a think tank, please register as a symposium attendee instead of using the media category.

The Press Office will be located in room Chesapeake D at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. Hours will be from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. September 18-20, 2017, Monday through Wednesday.

A few highlights of the 2016 Air, Space & Cyber Conference include:

  • More than 39 forums, ranging from workshops to major addresses
  • Networking opportunities with Air Force, government, and industry leaders
  • A Technology Exposition with more than 100,000 square feet of space to showcase the latest technology in industry
  • Enlisted sessions with topics geared toward NCOs
