The 2014 USAFRICOM Industry Day & ISR/Logistics Showcase hosted by USAFRICOM on 29-30 January 2014 in Stuttgart, Germany successfully brought together over 700 attendees to discuss USAFRICOM’s mission and requirements. This was also an opportunity for Industry Partners to demonstrate their latest and greatest technological products and services surrounding intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and logistics.
“Building Innovative Solutions … Together”, this year’s theme allowed attendees to learn from AFRICOM leadership and contracting officers how to conduct business with DoD organizations. An evening Networking Social hosted by DRG and NetScout provided an opportunity for AFRICOM personnel and Industry Partners to network and ask questions after the day’s briefs.
The chance to network continued to Thursday at the ISR/Logistics Showcase where 116 Industry Exhibits were setup at the Kelley Club and Kelley Fitness Center, on-site at Kelley Barracks. The morning was kicked-off with opening remarks presented by Brig Gen James Johnson, followed by a Networking Breakfast hosted by Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VDEP). More than 500 AFRICOM personnel were able to engage with Industry Partners and learn first-hand about the newest technologies related to ISR, information processing, exploitations and dissemination, mobility and transportation, and other general logistics capabilities in the commercial sector. The event continued strong throughout the afternoon with a Networking Lunch hosted by Emerging Marketing Communications (EMC).
