2013 Michigan Defense Expo Set
WARREN — Registration is open for the Michigan Defense Exposition May 14-15.
The Michigan Chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association is hosting the fourth annual Michigan Defense Exposition. The MDEX will offer new features to attract an expanded audience focused on Defense Prime attendees and facilitate strong networking opportunities between government and industry, while showcasing industry capabilities to enhance product performance to serve our warfighters.
With defense travel budgets constrained, the NDIA Michigan Chapter feels it is critical to provide a venue not only to showcase industry capabilities, but also provide an environment to network among the defense primes, government, and industry.
The event runs from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. May 14 and 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. May 15. The venue is the Macomb Community College Sports & Expo Center, 14500 E. 12 Mile Road, Warren.
Officials say 10-foot-by-10-foot booths are still available for $950. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Sara Armour at (248) 677-1527.
The Michigan Chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association was founded in 1918 as the Army Ordnance Association. Its charter is to provide a legal and ethical forum for the interchange of ideas between the government and industry to resolve industrial problems of joint concern.
Currently the Michigan Chapter has more than 3,000 members representing government, military, and industry. The majority of large businesses that support the Michigan defense community are Corporate Members of NDIA. The Michigan Chapter is involved in a myriad of different activities that support all branches of the armed forces, local, state, and federal government, as well as the corporate entities that support our warfighters, first responders, and patriotic Americans.
