Organizing Team

DEFSEC Atlantic presented by the Atlantic Canada Aerospace & Defence Association is managed by a mostly volunteer group who dedicate many hours to the planning and execution of the event. The team contributes talents in their respective areas of expertise and all members are focused on attendee satisfaction. Our team recognizes that many of our guests may be new to doing business in the Atlantic region and aim to provide an enjoyable and productive event that reflects the best of Atlantic Canada.
