Because of these advantages, Southern California is uniquely positioned to serve existing and attract future aerospace and defense-related programs.

In previous years, this SpeedNews event was held in Mobile, AL and Charleston, SC.

By bringing the conference here, we are able to better highlight all that the Southern California region has to offer in our aerospace and defense industry cluster.
