Axios, Foreign Affairs Magazine, and Foreign Policy Magazine Join as Media Partners for First AI Expo for National Competitiveness

Upcoming expo to feature emerging technology demonstrations, meaningful dialogue with industry leaders and breakthroughs on the show floor. 

ARLINGTON, Va. – April 25, 2024 – The Special Competitive Studies Project (SCSP), a non-partisan, non-profit project dedicated to strengthening America’s long-term competitiveness in artificial intelligence (AI), announced today three media partners of the AI Expo for National Competitiveness

The AI Expo media partners are: 

  • Axios, a media company that seeks to deliver trustworthy news, expert insights and engaging information to get people smarter, faster on what matters most. Axios was created around a simple proposition: to deliver a clean, smart and efficient experience to its audience.
  • Foreign Affairs Magazine, a magazine for in-depth analysis and debate of foreign policy, geopolitics, and international affairs. Published by the nonprofit think tank, the Council on Foreign Relations, the magazine offers insights into the issues that shape the world around us from the experts in their fields. 
  • Foreign Policy Magazine has helped readers for over 50 years dive well below the headlines to examine the latest policy developments with rigorous analysis and award-winning journalism. Through its comprehensive coverage, including its events, analysis, podcasts, newsletters, and more, FP provides a deep dive on all things global affairs.

In addition to serving as media partners, representatives from all three organizations will serve as moderators for panels at the Expo. 

“SCSP appreciates the support of all three Expo media partners and their contributions to the dialogue on America’s role in technology innovation,” said SCSP President Ylli Bajraktari. “Partnerships like these help boost the visibility of the engaging conversations and discussions being fostered at the AI Expo surrounding our nation’s leadership in critical emerging technologies.”

The goal of the free two-day expo is to bring together leaders of innovation from the private sector, research institutions, the U.S. government, and key allies and partners to exchange ideas, strengthen partnerships, and educate the public on emerging technology innovations and applications.
