The DIA Future Technologies Symposium will discuss the challenges and opportunities posed by emerging technologies, current initiatives, successes, and opportunities for integration with government stakeholders, academia, and the private sector.

Industry presenters are being offered dedicated time integrated into the official agenda to present their products and services to the entire audience. This five-minute product/service overview will allow companies to directly connect with a large audience of qualified stakeholders. During the live presentations you may share a PowerPoint, set up a demo, share a video, or just speak directly with the group. You may also pre-record your presentation to be shown live during the event.

Industry, academia, and government organizations who have technologies of interest to this community are invited to take part in the event. To supplement these presentations, digital profiles containing contact information and details about your company will be displayed on the event website.

These integrated industry presentations will allow participants to gain valuable insights to potential solutions. The theme of the symposium is Strategic Competition, and will feature keynote speakers from the Intelligence Community, AFRL, Academia, and Industry.
