Attendee Justification

The Global SOF Foundation Symposium - Europe provides attendees with a venue to network, build international partnerships, and engage with global thought leaders on issues impacting the Special Operations Forces (SOF) community.

To us, that sounds like sufficient reason to attend this conference. However, to help justify attending, we’ve put together the below “kit” of information to help prospective attendees justify their attendance to their leadership and make the leap from consideration to registration.

Cost Comparison

Money is always a concern, and the GSF strives to ensure high quality events at affordable costs. We have carefully compared our event costs to other SOF-focused events, and the data shows that GSF events are both comparable to other events in the same genre but also include lunches, energy breaks, and networking receptions.
