GSOF To Host SOF Week In Place Of SOFIC

Earlier today NDIA announced that there would not be a SOFIC for 2023. We have just learned that SOCOM is partnering with Global SOF, an industry association representing companies which do briskness specifically with SOF.

GSOF released this statement:

From the desk of Stu Bradin:
2023 SOF Week (formerly known as SOFIC): Good News! Did you want me to make this the first bullet? No way. On 14 July we received word from USSOCOM GEN Clarke that GSOF was selected to run SOF Week 2023.

SO WHAT? It will be a 2 year MOU starting in 2023 and in 2024 it will include international SOF Week. This is a huge honor and opportunity that we think will better synchronize our efforts and better support the SOF community. SOF will work with USSOCOM to make SOF Week the best event in the US – more akin to a national convention for SOF rather than just an industry conference. Changing from SOFIC to SOF Week will make this event bigger, and it will hopefully bring in more of the SOF Community. It will not be easy, but we got this! We want your input to make this a success. Please attend one of the virtual Focus Groups this month.

You can sign up for the virtual focus groups here.

  1. Thank you for letting us know this.

    The booth registration portal was to open August 1. Do we know when it may happen?

    Will it still be in Tampa?

    Thank you.

    Best,
    Tracy
