The Atlantic Future Forum exists to help strengthen the defence, security, technology and trading relationships between democratic nations. AFF22 was hosted in the United States on board the Royal Navy aircraft carrier, HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH.

The AFF is one of the UK’s international leadership events. The Forum brings together senior politicians, policy makers, military leaders and academia, together with business leaders and entrepreneurs from the United Kingdom, United States and others. The AFF is chaired by Lord Sedwill, the former UK Cabinet Secretary and National Security Adviser.

The Forum is unique amongst international summits in bringing together the worlds of business, government and the military. Many leading UK and US companies and exporters present at the Forum and have helped shape the policy agenda.

AFF'22 took place on September 28 - 29, onboard HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH, anchored off New York, to strengthen the historic relationship between the United States, United Kingdom and their allies. The Forum seeks to advance the vital defence, security, trading and economic partnership between these countries and explore how we boost innovation, economic growth and resilience.
