Eastern Defense Summit 2023

The CDCA Defense Summit is one of the largest defense-focused events on the East Coast, bringing more than 1,800 Government, Military, Academia and Industry leaders together to better understand and address today’s technology challenges within our Defense Industry. The CDCA Defense Summit serves as a mechanism to bring key defense industry leaders together to focus on innovative technologies around Digital, Cyber, and Unmanned Systems to enhance interoperability across Defense Assets. By presenting Exhibit Demos, Keynote Addresses, Innovation Spotlights, and High Energy Tech Exchanges, this year’s Summit will provide an opportunity for all representatives to form workforce partnerships that result in achieving a National Defense tactical edge no adversary can match.


The 16th Annual CDCA Defense Summit will be in-person December 6-7, 2023, at the Charleston Area Convention Center in North Charleston, SC.


The Innovation Pitch Jam will remain a keystone event of the Defense Summit in December.
