NDIA offers a wide variety of meetings, conferences, exhibitions and events each year, providing a platform for industry, government, and academia to collaborate, communicate, and network. NDIA events drive strategic dialogue in national security by identifying key issues and leveraging the knowledge and experience of our audience. NDIA convenes groups and individuals for the exchange of ideas, which encourages research and development, promotes the exploration of emerging trends, and facilitates discussion on the complex challenges and evolving threats to our national security. Participation in approximately one dozen NDIA exhibitions each year brings contacts to your company. Building presence over time helps establish relationships with current and prospective customers.

NDIA Divisions, Committees, and working groups are made up of volunteers representing their organizations and industries, focused on scientific, technical, policy, and management disciplines of national defense. Participation is limited to representatives of corporate members. By choosing to take part, volunteers from your company might plan symposia, prepare studies, or develop policy recommendations.
