Join us for the 2020 NDIA-TVC Missile Defense Agency Small Business Programs Conference in Huntsville, AL, from May 12 – 14. The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP)—in partnership with the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Tennessee Valley Chapter (TVC) and Women in Defense (WID TVC)—presents the 21st Annual Small Business Programs Conference.
The MDA Small Business Programs Conference is designed to assist Small Business contractors in doing business with MDA by providing information about opportunities to support the Missile Defense System requirements in upcoming procurements and provide matchmaking with MDA Prime Contractors, Government Representatives, and networking with other Small Businesses.
This year's conference will feature a 3-day agenda that includes a day dedicated to matchmaking. Last year, the conference sold out two weeks in advance, so please register early to reserve your spot!
Matchmaking sessions will be held where you will be able to schedule a session with MDA and other government representatives and large Industry prime contractors. Sign up will open prior to the conference. Registered attendees will get an email with the Matchmaking registration link.
