Successful Marketing Campaigns by Boeing

August 21, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Registration is closed. No walk-ins are permitted.

The summer of 2018 was a remarkable period in the defense industry. There were a few once-in-a-generation program proposals and some other key opportunities, all being chased by companies used to working in a highly competitive environment.

Boeing’s Defense, Space & Security division shocked the industry by winning the two future franchise programs (the U.S. Air Force T-X trainer, the long-awaited replacement for the T-38 Talon; and the U.S. Navy MQ-25 Stingray unmanned refueling aircraft) and a U.S. Air Force reconnaissance helicopter program (MH-139) few believed was a legitimate opportunity for the company.

How did this happen? The groundwork was laid months and years before in a collaboration among the company’s sales, program and Marketing teams and support of company leadership. The foundation of all of these pursuits were carefully crafted, multidisciplinary marketing plans that incorporated research, customer feedback and input, multi-channel tactics using traditional and digital media, continual evaluation and regular adjustment.

Join Jon Douglas, senior manager, Brand and Market Positioning, as he gives an overview of the company’s T-X marketing plan. Jon will take your questions as you get a sense of the thought process and elements behind Boeing’s successful approach.

The event will be held at Defense, Space & Security headquarters in Arlington, Va. Following the presentation participants will be given a tour of Boeing’s state-of-the-art Collaboration Center.

Date: August, 21, 2019
Time: 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Place: Boeing Defense, Space & Security, 929 Long Bridge Drive, Arlington, VA 22202-4208
