Now in its sixth year, the annual Nuclear Deterrence Summit is the preeminent gathering of U.S. and international leaders, experts and industry executives in the field of nuclear deterrence. With discussion ranging from management of the U.S. nuclear weapons complex and the security of the stockpile to arms control negotiations and strategic policy, the Nuclear Deterrence Summit annually brings together the top minds in the field for what has been described as a ‘nuclear Davos.’ If you’re involved in any facet of the U.S. nuclear weapons complex, U.S. strategic forces or nuclear weapons policy, this is an event you can’t afford to miss.
