Event Overview

The New Hampshire Aerospace and Defense (NHAD) 2019 Annual Networking Event is presented by the NH Aerospace and Defense Export Consortium (NHADEC) in partnership with the NH Department of Business and Economic Affairs, the NH Manufacturing Extension Partnership, and the U.S. Commercial Service. It will be held on Thursday, May 9, 2019, from 4:30pm to 8:00pm at the Manchester Country Club in Bedford, NH.

The theme for NHAD 2019 is “Targeted Opportunities with the DoD & the Primes.” NHAD 2019 will be an excellent opportunity for New Hampshire and regional manufacturers and service providers in the aerospace and defense industries to:

• Learn about global market trends and opportunities from leading experts and representatives from the primes,
• Engage with representatives from the primes*,
• Connect and engage up and down the local supply chain,
• Establish a greater industry network, and
Learn more about NHADEC and how it is helping national aerospace and defense businesses achieve full growth potential.

The summit enables attendees to hear directly from industry experts on global trends and partnership strategies, showcase industry capabilities directly with the primes, and network with companies from the primes to all tier levels. The agenda will include:

• Keynote presentation from Mr. Sean Slatter, President and Chief Executive Officer of LSI, a leading government business development consulting firm, who will provide members strategies to increase win rates and reduce business development costs,
• Presentations by representatives from the primes regarding procurement,
• “Speed” introductions* with representatives from the primes, and
• General networking opportunities.

* Attendees will be able to participate in “Speed” introductions with key procurement representatives from the primes. As a special member benefit this year, participating primes will be given, in advance, unique company profiles for attending NHADEC members for advance opportunity matches.  Only companies who are NHADEC members as of April 15, 2019, will have their company profiles shared with the participating primes ahead of NHAD 2019.  We invite you to become a NHADEC member in order to take advantage of this unique and exciting opportunity!  Otherwise, all attendees will be able to share their company information and meet with the primes at the event.
