vAWS 2021 Sponsorship & Branding Opportunites

Like our virtual Air, Space & Cyber Conference last September, 2021’s virtual Aerospace Warfare Symposium (#vAWS2021) will include three days of live, interactive, and on-demand discussions with Air Force, Space Force, and industry senior leaders on innovation and accelerating change.

AFA is implementing a Mission Domain approach to replace the virtual exhibit hall. With 21 Mission Domains, the Mission Domain Hub offers sponsors and attendees multiple touchpoints with widescreen demonstration pages organized by mission domain.

Mission Domain Live Engagement Sessions included in the afternoon agenda during vAWS, February 24-26 offer industry the opportunity to present products, services, innovations, and solutions to Airmen, Guardians, and systems integrators in a live, interactive format.

vAWS has two phases:

Phase One – Open to All Registered Attendees

vAWS platform with Mission Domain Hub launches on February 22, 2021. Opens two days before vAWS begins. Registered attendees will have the opportunity to become familiar with the platform and explore the Mission Domains before the symposium.

Phase Two – Open to Only Full Symposium Attendees

vAWS Broadcast, Mission Domain Live Engagement Sessions and On-Demand Content commences February 24 and runs through February 26. vAWS is broadcast from 9:00 am to Noon Eastern Time with Mission Domain Live Engagement Sessions included in the agenda each afternoon. On-demand sessions and sponsored content will be released each day of the symposium.
