“These breakout sessions and ‘meet and greet’ sessions offer participating companies the opportunity to sit in the same room with several prime contractors, first-tier subs, and Department of Defense and federal agency representatives,” said Scott Dorney, Executive Director of the North Carolina Military Business Center. “In order to be successful, it is critical for businesses that are engaged or interested in the aerospace marketplace to know not only the current needs, but also the future needs of all potential customers, including primes, other subcontractors and military buyers in North Carolina and beyond.”
