The 2021 Future Force Capabilities Conference & Exhibition will conclude with a Live Fire Demonstration, taking place on Thursday, October 21, at Ft. Benning. All conference registrants will have the opportunity to attend at no additional fee. However, we do ask that you select the “live fire demo” option during the registration process so we can account for how many individuals to accommodate for.
Schedule of events:
- Bus pickup in front of the Columbus Georgia Convention & Trade Center
-You will be required to sign a waiver and wear your conference badge to board the buses
- Tour of the Armor Restoration Center
- Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU) Demonstration (observation only)
- Lunch on the Range
- Live Fire Demonstration (interactive)
There will be buses on rotation between the Columbus Georgia Convention & Trade Center and Ft. Benning throughout the day.
Be sure to bring or wear the following if participating:
- Long sleeve shirts, without pockets
- Long pants
- Closed-toe shoes
- Ear protection
- Eye protection
Interested in signing up as a demonstrator?
Preference will be given to those companies that are current conference exhibitors or sponsors.
The deadline to submit applications was July 23, 2021. All applications are currently in the review and approval process. Once approved, you will then be assigned your space on the range, sent a Safety Rules & Procedures packet to sign and agree to, as well as an invoice for your demonstration fee ($150 for current exhibitors or sponsors; $2,000 for non-exhibiting or sponsoring companies).
A full list of demonstrating companies will be posted to the website in early September.
If you have any questions in regards to the status of your application or the Live Fire Demonstration in general, please contact Sarah O'Hanley at sohanley@NDIA.org.
