DoD Maintenance Symposium

December 9-12, 2019 │ Spokane, Washington, USA

Theme: Ready Systems @ the Speed of Relevance

Drive Defense Materiel Readiness Recovery Forward

The Department’s urgent and ongoing readiness recovery journey must succeed and requires both government organizations and industry, side-by-side, to achieve the goals set in the National Defense Strategy. Recent efforts focused on increasing the availability of critical DoD platforms have yielded improvement — but the current global environment requires us to accelerate our pace.

Annually, the DoD Maintenance Symposium and co-located Defense Maintenance and Logistics Exhibition brings over 1,600 defense maintenance professionals together for four days of concentrated learning, collaboration, and technology exploration. The Symposium is the only DoD event solely focused on maintenance of weapon systems and equipment. Defense maintenance and sustainment professionals from government, industry, and academia converge in Spokane, Washington, this December to engage on issues in this event that includes:

  • Senior keynote presentations
  • Plenary panels
  • Breakout and tutorial technical sessions
  • Associated meetings
  • The annual SecDef Maintenance Awards Ceremony
  • A co-located exhibit hall with leading-edge solutions

The 2019 Department of Defense Maintenance Symposium is co-located with Defense Maintenance and Logistics Exhibition. This exhibit hall offers an unprecedented opportunity to display products and services to an extremely focused sustainment and maintenance market. Over 110 exhibitors are expected to participate.
