December 7 to 9, 2021

Detroit, Michigan

We’re excited to announce that this year’s Offset Symposium: Acquisition Warfare will take place from Dec. 7-9 in Detroit, Michigan. Started in 2017, this annual event forges a community of thought leaders, up-and-comers, venture-backed startups, defense powerhouses, academic trailblazers, and national security professionals.

Check-in will begin Tuesday evening followed by a full two days of keynotes, panels and interactive sessions.

Directly linked to the National Defense Strategy, the theme of Acquisition Warfare focuses on mechanisms for technological advances and organizational change to gain competitive advantage through agile acquisition. Acquisition Warfare demands continuous and secure access between commercial and government entities to develop and deploy technological innovations to compete in today’s threat landscape.

Mark your calendars to join us and explore the development and deployment of new capabilities for U.S. and Allied national security.
