Hercules Orion Conference

Lockheed Martin invites you to attend the 2022 Hercules Orion Conference (HOC) “Achieve Excellence”

Oct.17-20, 2022  Atlanta, Georgia
Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel & Convention Center

In response to customer feedback, while focusing on customer needs, the Hercules and Orion communities united in 2019 for a combined conference. This collaboration continues in 2022 as represented by the official renaming to the “Hercules Orion Conference,” which reflects the shared mobility and operational interest among the communities.  We also are introducing a new format. This new format and “tracks” allow for added collaboration among communities of interest.

This annual event includes more than 80 exhibitors; briefings on the C-130B-J, L-100, LM-100J, and P-3/CP-140 aircraft; and provides networking opportunities that allow for sharing operational, technical, modification and maintenance insights among Hercules and Orion operators, aircrew, service centers, logisticians and suppliers.

As you make plans to attend the HOC, take note of key enhancements and information about this year’s conference. While embracing and accelerating change, Lockheed Martin will focus on discriminators that optimize affordability, readiness and resilient logistics to enhance the event’s value.  Please review the following information in support of this important engagement opportunity:
