"Based on the Roundtable discussion, for the first time, real issues and challenges were brought to the table and discussed and actual solutions from Capt Owen was given. I attend many conferences and that was huge."  

2017 West Coast Small Business Defense Contracting Summit Attendee



Defense Leadership Roundtable 

The Defense Leadership Roundtable is an invitation-only focus group discussion (no formal presentations, no audience) with Summit speakers and other special guests. Real issues and challenges will be discussed with military, government, congressional, and industry leaders while generating possible solutions in real-time. Summit attendees can submit questions on topics related to DoD Acquisition/Procurement/Contracting in advance. A brief summary of the discussion will be provided to all Summit attendees by the Summit Moderator at the beginning of the afternoon General Session. Not featured at all events.
