Washington D.C., Virginia, and Mobile, Alabama

In October 2017, AmCham will run its inaugural Defence & Aerospace Mission to the USA, with visits to key US government agencies and defence industry giants with major footprints in Australia. Along the way, delegates will be exposed to how innovative thinking drives success among the major players in Virginia, Washington DC, and Mobile, Alabama.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to uncover ground-breaking innovations in defence and aerospace technology, from submarines to satellites. Join Maureen Dougherty, President of Boeing Australia, New Zealand, South Pacific, and Chairman of AmCham Australia to hear insights from senior leaders at some of the world's top defence companies and agencies. While visiting these major players you will have the chance to witness how they have achieved their high levels of success and how to incorporate some of their practices into your own work to further develop your company.

With planned visits to Huntington-Ingalls Shipbuilding in Newport News, Virginia, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Austal in Mobile, Alabama and a host of federal government agencies in Washington DC, this is a Mission you won't want to miss!

You will return to Australia with practical insights that you can apply in your own work place. You will hear and discuss first-hand how the most innovative American defence companies manage operations, create opportunity, and consistently outperform their peers. Plus, get the inside scoop on how America's top defence and intelligence agencies are planning to confront global security challenges on the horizon.
