Industry day conferences are one of the most important and oftentimes misunderstood meetings held between industry and government. So how do you set-up and conduct a meaningful and well defined industry day conference that ensures both sides, government and industry, engage in outcomes that are optimal?


This seminar examines tips and techniques for creating successful industry day conferences.  Participants discuss what both sides can do to ensure meaningful outcomes, the purpose and goals of the conference, who should attend, the basic structure, and the importance of the conference.

At the conclusion of the seminar, a checklist will be developed for contracting officers to follow in designing the optimal conference.
