The 30th anniversary edition of the world’s largest military exposition focusing on enhanced capabilities for expeditionary forces will be presented at Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Va., Sept. 28-30.
The Modern Day Marine Military Exposition will celebrate that anniversary by continuing a tradition of leadership in the defense trade show industry with various special programs and events. The event will include a new “Warfighters Corner”; meetings between industry officials and the Marine Corps’ authorities on the service’s equipment requirements; a parade; award ceremonies honoring outstanding members of Marine commands and two distinguished Americans; and presentation of a major financial donation to a youth group by a defense company exhibiting at the exposition.
Defense manufacturers will have representatives on hand to discuss their companies’ products and services, respond to questions and exchange information with the Marine warfighters concerning their recent forward deployments.
On Sept. 30, the Modern Day Marine Military Exposition will also host a “Family Day,” during which family members of DoD military and civilian personnel can tour the exhibits.
