Utah Aerospace & Defense Association

Building the A&D industry along the Wasatch Front

Our Aims

Utah Aerospace and Defense Association (UADA) serves as the first ever convening body for Aerospace and Defense companies in the state of Utah. The organization works as a partner to the Governor’s Office, World Trade Center Utah, the legislature, and other organizations in promoting/advocating for all aspects of business related to this industry.

We aim to increase and promote the innovation taking place on and off the Wasatch Front by identifying companies and telling their stories in an effort to help grow sales and identify new contract opportunities.


UADA assists companies looking to connect with buyers, partners, and investors worldwide through trade shows and other events. UADA also helps companies attract qualified talent to Utah.


With labor being in short supply, the industry will continue to benefit from organizations who can help support their efforts to identify human capital and grow their people professionally. Many jobs in the defense industry require security clearances. Individuals with a clearance are highly sought after.


Business leaders continue to focus their efforts on identifying new revenue opportunities through partnerships within the Department of Defense and global organizations like Boeing, Airbus, etc.

UADA is an organization that unites like-minded leaders and leverages the innovation, manufacturing, and distribution of their products and services.

Our Focus

UADA focuses on innovation, manufacturing, national defense, policy, and sales. Our organization provides events that help fulfill our mission to convene and promote companies within this space.
