USSOCOM Awards Ceremony and Dinner



Headquarters United States Special Operations Command Awards Ceremony & Dinner

10 May 2023
Marriott Water Street - Floor 2 - Grand Ballroom
Invite / Ticketed Access Only

Dress Code: Formal 

The USSOCOM Awards Ceremony and Dinner is a longstanding highlight of USSOCOM's annual conference. It features several awards, including The Bull Simons Award, which was first awarded in 1990. The award recognizes recipients who embody “the true spirit, values, and skills of a Special Operations warrior.” Col. Arthur “Bull” Simons, whom the award is named after, was the epitome of these attributes.

Tickets to the Awards Ceremony and Dinner sell out quickly and are a coveted commodity during SOF Week! These can be purchased as part of your SOF Week Registration or as a stand-alone ticket for those not attending other SOF Week events.



  • We are extremely excited to convene the community at SOF Week 2024. This convention for U.S. and International SOF will include a diverse slate of programs, to include professional development sessions, interactive discussions about the future of SOF, and an up-close view of some of the best tech available to our warfighters. GSOF looks forward to working with USSOCOM to make SOF Week 2024 an impactful event.
