DEF IS HEADING TO SAN FRANCISCO FOR OUR 2022 CONFERENCE!
About this Event
DEF2022 ANNUAL CONFERENCE

The DEF2022 conference will be held at the Marines' Memorial Hotel from October 5 - 7, 2022. The core content days will be October 5 and 6. DEF2022 will bring the community together for multiple days of speakers, panels, breakouts, workshops, happy hours, and a pitch competition. The annual conference's unique mix of junior and senior military leaders, policy experts, creatives, veterans, and entrepreneurs creates a perfect environment for disruptive thinkers to develop new ideas with unmatched energy and engagement. All of this supports DEF's vision for a culture of innovation in the national security community. After a virtual conference last year, we are excited to get the community back together safely. See you at DEF2022!


EXPLORING THE THEME OF "THE BRIDGE TO INNOVATIVE DISRUPTION"

Our theme for DEF2022 is “The Bridge to Innovative Disruption." The first DEF event inspired a movement and over the years it has connected people into a community and empowered individuals to seek change within their bureaucracies. Now in the conference's ninth year, when "innovation" has become a much more common word in the defense ecosystem, we are focusing on what it truly means to actually, tangibly deliver on a real, persistent culture of innovation.
