NDIA-TVC MDA Small Business Conference

    Based on the ongoing developments of the COVID-19 outbreak and ban on gatherings, the National Defense Industrial Association Tennessee Valley Chapter is exploring options with the MDA Small Business Office for holding a virtual conference.

    We are looking to keep the May 12-14 dates due to anticipated RFP's coming out this summer. We will continue to communicate with you on our website and by email as we determine what a virtual conference may look like if we proceed down that path and layout options for you.

    The health and safety of our members, registrants, exhibitors and staff is our highest priority and we thank you for your continued support of NDIA.

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP) in partnership with the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Tennessee Valley Chapter (TVC) present the 21st Annual Small Business Programs Conference May 12-14, 2020 in Huntsville, AL.

    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 which includes a day dedicated to matchmaking. Last year the conference sold out two weeks in advance, so please register early to reserve your spot!
