Back by popular demand! We have expanded the IGNITE to its own dedicated exhibit hall at the JW Marriott in the Tampa Bay Ballroom, directly across the street from the Tampa Convention Center. Other conference activities, including PEO Overview: SOF Digital Application and PEO Overview: SOF Warrior sessions, will also be taking place at the JW Marriott. 

IGNITE will feature approximately 50-75 small businesses with innovative products and services to display to the SOF community. Companies will have the opportunity to showcase their products for attendees to stop by and interact with the featured companies.

All IGNITE companies will be selected by a committee focusing on the following USSOCOM technology focus areas.

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Autonomy
  • Communications
  • Cyber
  • Data Fusion Analysis
  • Directed Energy
  • Edge Computing Security in Contested Environments
