About SOFIC

The Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) is the single most important opportunity for the SOF community to interact with industry and collaborate on the challenges, initiatives, and way-ahead in delivering the most cutting-edge capabilities into the hands of SOF operators. SOFIC welcomes upwards of 15,000 attendees and over 400 exhibiting companies; including representation from dozens of countries.

New this year, SOFIC will be a hybrid event to give attendees the option to attend in-person, virtually, or both. There will be three different registration options so registrants can choose what works best for them. All SOFIC attendees will have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of agenda items.

  • Keynote addresses by SOF leaders
  • Live Special Ops demonstration held on the Tampa Bay waterfront
  • ISOF Commanders Conference
  • SOF capability and product exhibits
  • Ignite Pavilion
  • Senior Industry Executive Forums (SIEFs)
  • Industry Gives Back Raffle
  • USSOCOM Awards Gala*
  • SOFlanding outdoor space
  • Panel discussions and educational sessions

For industry attendees, SOFIC offers a multitude of significant opportunities for networking, business intelligence, brand promotion, and product demonstration. Participants are offered detailed insights and tips on how to do business with the U.S. Special Operations Command, and information on what capabilities are most desired by the community.

Each year, SOFIC serves as the premier conference for the SOF community to develop, nurture, and exercise its growing network between industry, government, academia, and international partners. By leveraging the depth, breadth, and diversity of this network, the SOF community can boost its velocity, multiply its productivity, and diversify its capabilities to meet the changing demands of SOF operators.

Is travel not an option for you at this time? Then plan to join SOFIC virtually. Virtual attendees will be able to participate in selected session and have access to those session recordings for thirty (30) days after the conference. They will also be able to network with other attendees and visit virtual exhibits.
