4th Annual International Defense Exports Symposium

7 June 2017

Washington, D.C.

Holland & Knight Conference Center

The International Defense Exports Symposium (IDES 2017) is an annual dialogue between industry stakeholders and government leaders regarding the current state of foreign military sales regulations, processes, and management systems. This symposium provides an excellent opportunity to better understand international defense exports. Since coalition operations have become a critical component for mission success, we will also discuss the impact of current defense export regulations on coalition interoperability and operations. Military, industry, and government personnel, engaged in international defense trade, are highly welcome to attend.
