Showcasing the Future of Vertical Flight

The 2023 Annual Forum and Technology Display (Forum 79) returns to the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach Florida, May 16-18, 2023. Located in the heart of the West Palm Beach entertainment district and only minutes from Palm Beach International Airport, Forum 79 promises to deliver an enjoyable event experience for the vertical flight community.

Well known for its sunshine and phenomenal shoreline, Palm Beach County is also recognized as a leader in aviation and aerospace engineering. With more than 20,000 employed professionals in over 1,400 aviation, aerospace engineering and industry support organizations, Palm Beach County ranks the second largest aerospace community in the United States.

Who will attend Forum 79?

Forum 79 is the longest running and most established vertical flight technology event. Unlike other trade shows, the VFS Forum provides access to an elite technical community responsible for directing the engineering and manufacturing processes of the global rotorcraft industry.

Exhibitors will interface with top program decision-makers on the show floor during unopposed exhibit hall viewing hours as well as at exhibit hall luncheons, receptions, and industry-wide sessions such as the US Army and US Navy / Marine Corps military program manager briefings. In addition, top ranking officers from the military source selection committees of the US Army, US Navy, US Marine Corps, US Air Force, US Coast Guard, and international counterparts will seek out your company's products/services and expertise for their forces training and operational requirements.

The VFS Forum Technology Display is the most extensive exposition addressing the needs of the VTOL, STOVL and related aerospace industry. Leading manufacturers, service providers, defense agencies, universities and research and development organizations will showcase the very latest in vertical flight technology including:
