Welcome to MILCOM 2023

Founded in 1982, MILCOM has been the preeminent forum bringing together thought leaders in government, industry, and academia to discuss innovative research and cutting-edge technology development. This is the 41st MILCOM conference. 

Meet Boston 

Meet Boston, along with the Boston Hospitality Partners are thrilled to welcome MILCOM to Boston. A lot has changed here recently, so be prepared to be introduced to a new Boston. Our Waterfront is booming with restaurants and harbor walks, our museums have expanded and our hotels have been renovated. But not to worry, our mix of colonial charm and urban sophistication still shines through making Boston a dynamic site for meetings of all kind. 

Even though Boston is one of the largest cities in the country, its accessibility is unparalleled. And while it's easy to  see the sights on foot, Boston also has an excellent public transportation system. In addition to everything within the city limits,  some of Massachusetts' most scenic and historic towns are just a short distance from the city center and its proximity to other must-see sites all around New England, make it one of the country's most diverse and exciting locations.
