“Dominance at the Speed of Need” is the theme of the Air Force Information Technology Conference (AFITC) scheduled for Aug, 30-31, 2010 in Montgomery, Alabama.
The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for Dept. of Defense (DoD) vendors and officials to learn about the latest developments in information technology (IT) applications to support the Air Force in maintaining the most advanced fighting force in the world in air, space, and cyberspace. The theme, “Dominance at the Speed of Need,” emphasizes the need for our warfighters to change at a rapid rate and the acquisition process needing to keep pace.
This year’s events will highlight an IT Small Business Town Hall Meeting, a keynote address from Mr. John G. Caporal, Acting Director, Small Business Programs, Department of the Air Force, and an IT Small Business Match-Making Session. The Match-Making event will be by appointment only and everyone must be registered for the conference in order to participate.
If you are a small business seeking to gain knowledge about how to be better equipped to compete for federal government contracts, or you want to become a subcontractor to a large business that does business with the government, this is the conference for you!
Registration may be accomplished at http://afitc.gunter.af.mil. You may elect to be an attendee or an exhibitor. After registering, return to the home page and select the Small Business tab. Place your cursor over the Match Making Registration tab and submit your company information. Each vendor can sign up for a maximum of five sessions.
Prime contractor representatives are published on the website after each company confirms participation in the event. As additional representatives confirm and additional information is made available, the Gunter Air Force Base website is to be updated.
