For more than a decade, the purpose of Warrior Expo has been to showcase the latest industry-leading equipment and services solutions to end users, program managers and procurement specialists that are designed to help them meet their operational requirements as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. This event also provides quality training and education in both structured classroom environments and open area training and demonstrations. These hands-on and classroom learning opportunities focus on topics related to technology, procurement, professional and personal growth. All classes are led by a training company with more than 20 years of experience leading defense and industry personnel in their professional development.
The event is structured to represent a broad scope of industry and Government-specific exhibits, educational sessions and demonstrations related to operational equipment, logistics and mission support. We have invited more than 200 key exhibitors from the industrial and manufacturing base that have developed the latest technology to address warfighter capabilities and requirements. Solution categories range from operational clothing and individual equipment (OCIE), C4ISR, medical and expeditionary operations, to unmanned systems technology and special missions such as explosive ordnance disposal (EOD).

Members of DOD, Federal, state and local agencies, first responders, U.S. allied foreign military organizations and government defense contractors will have the opportunity to exchange ideas, as well as hear from, ask questions and be educated by subject matter experts about the latest advancements in operational equipment, logistics support and procurement strategies to support their mission requirements.
