Networking and Special Events

Networking 1

This year AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum is expected to draw more than 1000 participants from across all facets of the profession working in aerospace research, development, and technology. Dedicated networking breaks, luncheons, and receptions are woven throughout the forum. Make connections at recognition ceremonies and lectureships; or simply talking with the person next to you in a session or in the hallway.

"The forum is a great place for us to make contacts, network with our customers and talk about new, innovative ideas. It's important to find the newest and best ways to make our airplanes and our industry better. This is a great opportunity to network and make that happen."—Rob Fuller, Lockheed Martin
