The Florida sun may have been hot, but the quality of competition and presence of impressive industry representatives was even hotter! A portion of OGT’s Leadership Team recently attended SOFIC (the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference) in Tampa, Florida. “SOFIC is the defense industry’s premier event focused on advancing defense industry technology solutions and building the global SOF alliance.”
The three-day event attracted approximately 10,000 government and industry attendees and featured 340 exhibiting companies. It enabled military, government, academia, and industry leaders to network and discuss current and future challenges and how to best support our Special Operations Forces (SOF) around the globe.
Over the course of three days, attendees were given the opportunity to engage with USSOCOM Program Executive Officers and Directors, Program Managers, the Office of Small Business Programs representative, and the Technology & Industry Liaison Office representative. It was a fabulous opportunity for Oak Grove to build and enhance relationships, enabling us to develop strong foundations for future business and teaming purposes. The open forums allowed our employees to engage with USSOCOM Senior Leaders while collaborating on how to win in a complex world.
Always growing to meet the needs of the organizations that we support, Oak Grove frequently attends conferences to learn of new ways to continue to serve this great nation through our contracts with the federal government. We hope to see you at the next big event!
