The kick-off of the DTS will occur with an official ribbon cutting at 10:15 AM, press and media are encouraged to attend. Military, state and federal leadership will be in attendance.
The DTS reflects the business community’s support for military and civilians who protect our freedoms everyday. Attendance at the DTS is free and open to the public. Over 750 individuals will attend the DTS.
“The Defense Trade Show at FTCC brings together more major defense contractors, North Carolina businesses, military and federal agencies and Congressional delegation members than any other event in our State,” said Scott Dorney, NCMBC Executive Director. “This full day includes a trade show with over 100 indoor and outdoor exhibitors, military static displays and personnel from Fort Bragg’s XVIII Airborne Corps and procurement-related educational activities. This combination of activities, and the Fort Bragg contracting office’s 4th quarter forecast event, make the Defense Trade Show a unique, ‘must attend’ event for businesses interested or currently working in the defense and federal marketplace.”
At the Defense Trade Show, businesses have the opportunity to build relationships with senior representatives from the Congressional delegation, the Department of Defense (DoD), other federal agencies and numerous defense contracting firms, including North Carolina small businesses.
