FOCUS. The Defense Trade Show (DTS) in 2015 will have a special emphasis on tactical vehicles and strategic power projection. The DTS hosts are inviting senior officers of military commands responsible for equipping and sustaining the force, along with major prime contractors for tactical vehicles and related systems. However, the DTS is an opportunity for businesses of ALL types to showcase their products and services to government buyers and prime contractors across ALL industry sectors.
PURPOSE. This event includes a one-day trade show, extensive networking opportunities and government procurement workshops (three tracks) for both prospective and current federal contractors. The purpose of the DTS is to build relationships between senior representatives of the Congressional delegation, the Department of Defense, other federal agencies and numerous defense contracting firms, including North Carolina small businesses. The event will include a traditional trade show, static displays and demonstrations of military equipment, informal networking opportunities, live vendor demonstrations, structured prime contractor teaming sessions, prime contractor “lessons learned” forums, installation small business panels and contracting workshops and agency briefings for both prospective and current federal contractors.
