The Summit will be the first major convention at the Wilmington Convention Center since Hurricane Florence occurred in September 2018.
The “Summit” brings together over 650 representatives of: five Districts of the US Army Corps of Engineers; Naval Facilities Engineering Command; Fort Bragg; Marine Corps Installations East/Camp Lejeune; Seymour Johnson AFB; Forts Gordon (GA), Fort Lee (VA); US Coast Guard; Department of Veterans Affairs; General Services Administration; other federal agencies; and general and specialty contractors, designers and construction suppliers from throughout the Southeast US.
“The Summit is the premier, best-established and most-recognized federal infrastructure event in the Southeast,” said Scott Dorney, Executive Director of the NCMBC. “The Summit networking and trade show activities allow businesses to market their services and products directly to over 650 military, federal and industry participants. Businesses that are already engaged or that want to perform in the federal market need to be at the Summit.”
The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Districts from Savannah, Charleston, Wilmington, Norfolk and Baltimore, as well as the USACE Headquarters in Washington D.C. and Naval Facilities Engineering Command offices from Norfolk and Jacksonville, FL will participate.

The Summit’s “Program and Requirements Dialogues” will address future projects and acquisition strategies (by military and government panelists) and other issues related to acquisition and execution of projects at military bases and government facilities in the Southeast. Other Summit sessions will address critical and timely topics, including workforce solutions, supplier, service contract and opportunities for public-private partnerships, small business programs and utilization, budget impacts, contracting processes and both pre- and post-award legal issues for federal contractors. Summit “Meet and Greet” sessions allow businesses to meet one-on-one and market themselves to federal agencies and prime contractors that buy construction, public works and engineering services and products in the Southeast.
