Strengthening New York’s Industrial Base August 11, 2021

Strengthening New York's Industrial Base

This forum is for all of the links in the NYS supply chain for the U.S. Department of Defense. Whether you’re a prime, a subcontractor, or at the lowest-level tier, you’ll make strong connections that can help your business grow.

Come join the rest of New York’s industrial base as we face common challenges ranging from cybersecurity and supplier vetting to workforce training and manufacturing efficiency. If there’s a challenge that you’re facing, you don’t have to fight the battle alone.

Why attend?

  • Connect with NYS resources who provide business and technical assistance.
  • Gain insights from our Keynote Speaker, organizers, and event sponsors.
  • Network with peers and meet potential new business partners.

Boxed Lunch and Bonus Session:

When the main event ends at noon, stick around for a boxed lunch and bonus session about cybersecurity, a growing concern for manufacturers. Meet NY MEP’s cybersecurity experts and learn about our free DFARS Self-Assessment training program.
