Why Exhibit

The CDAO is responsible for ensuring engagement with DoD personnel, defense and private industry, research universities, and unaffiliated, non-profit research institutions in order to advance data analytics and artificial intelligence adoption. In support of this, the CDAO is offering industry, government, and academia partners the opportunity to set up demonstrations during the Advantage DoD 2024: Defense Data & AI Symposium. This event will facilitate key stakeholders’ understanding of DoD’s way forward and future needs in order to accelerate the adoption and integration of AI within the DoD.

The Advantage DoD 2024: Defense Data & AI Symposium Exhibit Hall will be located at the Washington Hilton. The exhibit tables will be co-located with the general session and breakout sessions throughout the main foyers and pre-function spaces. Exhibitors will have an opportunity to demonstrate their products and services relevant to the Symposium theme and objectives. Over 1,000 participants are expected to take part in the Symposium, and time will be built into their schedules to view and evaluate new companies, technologies, and services offered by the exhibitors.
