The 2019 Aerospace, Defence & Security Expo (ADSE) will feature industry exhibits, keynote speeches, panels and workshops, together with numerous B2B and networking opportunities. High-profile presenters will offer the latest information and insights on relevant and topical industry related developments. ADSE brings together commercial and military aerospace in addition to defence and security, offering tremendous value to those involved in the Canadian and international Aerospace, Defence and Security industry sectors.

This year’s theme:
Vision 2025 – The Canadian Aerospace Advantage

From the beginning, Canada’s aerospace industry has been a leader — a manufacturing and MRO powerhouse at home, and an innovative front-runner around the world. But today, that leadership is being challenged and Canada’s aerospace legacy is at risk. If Canada is to keep the aerospace advantage it has spent decades building, the time to act is now.

Featuring executives from industry, government, and more, ADSE 2019 will consider Canada’s future in aerospace, defence and security and explore the challenges and opportunities facing the industry at home and in the global marketplace.

  • What is Canada’s aerospace advantage, and how is it creating new opportunities for Canadians?
  • What are the current challenges to growth, productivity and competitiveness?
  • Where are the emerging opportunities for the industry, and what do companies need to know in order to take advantage of them?
  • What strategies are other aerospace nations using to increase their competitiveness and empower their aerospace industries, both domestically and around the world?

Taking place in Abbotsford, BC on August 8-9, ADSE is a must-attend event for anyone interested in making sure that the future of Canadian aerospace leadership is strong.
