The AeroLambda Group Launches

November 30, 2022

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, November 30, 2022 / -- The AeroLambda Group supported by a select group of leaders in the middle-tier aerospace and defense industry will be launching "The Aerospace Event by Joanna Speed", set for April 4-5, 2023 at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills, CA. The conference will provide a top-level, confidential, and exclusive event for leaders to exchange ideas and share new developments in the rapidly changing business environment.

"Economic headwinds and supply chain disruptions have given urgency to finding solutions and charting a path forward," said The AeroLambda Group CEO and Founder, Joanna Speed. "There is no substitute for the creative thinking and effective problem solving that comes from a live event and face-to-face, close connections. Bringing the industry's most influential thought leaders and essential industry executives together provides a tremendous ROI by leading to better decision-making and successful strategy. The Aerospace Event's program will be specifically and exclusively curated to ensure it provides maximum value and networking opportunities found nowhere else."

Mark Lee, Chairman, Aero-mark LLC, said, "Over the years, I have been associated with many of the ventures founded and assisted by Gil Speed, including conferences, newsletters, organizations, and industry consulting. Gil Speed was a legend in the Aerospace Industry. Along with his wife Ann, they diversified their business from the iconic newsletter to include events that set the industry standard for providing informative presentations and intimate discussions in an elite environment. Joanna was an integral participant in their successful pivot to events that provided an unequaled value to the mid-tier participants. Their conferences were always conducted with integrity, class, and style. The Aerospace Event will no doubt carry on that tradition while improving and reimagining it for the current and future generation of A&D executives."

Chris Celtruda, CEO, Valence Surface Technologies, noted, "Aerospace conferences that address OEM concerns have proliferated, but a considerable gap remains for an event that gets the right supporting industry people in the right space with the right agenda. The Aerospace Event will be that event. Participants with proven track records who speak with unquestioned authority are rare. Joanna has assembled an all-star lineup for this inaugural event."
