The annual Nuclear Deterrence Summit gathers U.S. and international leaders, experts, and industry executives in the field of nuclear deterrence to discuss management of the nuclear complex, the security of the stockpile, arms control negotiations, and strategic policy.

ExchangeMonitor Publications & Forums has announced the theme for the 2018 Nuclear Deterrence Summit, The Administration’s New Nuclear Posture Review. This Summit brings together leaders from across the U.S. nuclear enterprise to discuss high-level policy changes. The final document of the Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) is set to be released just months before the Summit takes place, and will cover each leg of the nuclear triad.

The review will detail the administration’s priorities for modernization and how this effort will relate to the nation’s policies on nonproliferation, arms control and keeping the nation safe from nuclear attack as well as continuing efforts by the Department of Homeland Security and Nuclear Detection Office to combat future nuclear smuggling and terrorism activities. Join leaders from across the U.S. nuclear enterprise at the 2018 Nuclear Deterrence Summit to discuss the impact of the NPR on the future of the nuclear deterrent enterprise at both the Energy and Defense Departments.

Taking place February 20-22 at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City in Arlington, VA, 2018 marks the 10 year anniversary of the annual Summit. With over 350 expected attendees and several high-profile sponsors already secured, including General Dynamics, Jacobs and AECOM, the 2018 Nuclear Deterrence Summit is a can’t miss event.

“Nuclear deterrence seems to make headlines every week lately, but to get beyond the headlines, you need to hear directly from the men and women who support nuclear security here and around the world,” said Dan Leone, reporter for Nuclear Security & Deterrence Monitor.

Agenda topics include:

  •     Nuclear Policy Update
  •     National Laboratories Updates
  •     MOX Update
  •     NNSA Weapons Activities Updates
  •     Countering Nuclear Smuggling
  •     Proliferation Challenges: North Korea, China & Iran
  •     Extended Deterrence Challenges: Russia and NATO
  •     Arms Control/International Security Diplomacy
  •     Nuclear Triad Modernization
  •     And more!

The Summit gives attendees access to executives representing some of the world’s most influential organizations and government agencies working in the nuclear deterrence and nonproliferation areas. Through a day and a half of conference sessions and networking events, attendees will get high-level strategic updates from high-profile and expert speakers who are moving the industry forward, and connect with one another to create business for 2018 and beyond.
