HUNTSVILLE, AL – The Team Redstone 2009 Advance Planning Briefings for Industry (APBI) conference will be at the Von Braun Center (VBC) East Halls 1 and 2 in Huntsville, Alabama, providing a networking opportunity the evening of August 26 followed by the conference on August 27.
“The Army depends on the industrial sector, including large and small business, for most research and development services and nearly all materiel acquisition,” said Major General James R. Myles. “Consequently, it is advantageous to the Army to provide information that will help businesses maintain awareness of the prospective Army procurement and develop competitive postures in anticipation of those procurements.”
The conference’s theme this year will be “Supporting the Warfighter – Collaborating to Achieve Enterprise Success,” and it will provide current information to further the exchange of ideas with industry. Focusing on Army aviation and missile system support, the forum will assist team members in planning and preparing for these requirements.
“I am particularly pleased with this year’s theme of supporting the Warfighter as several of our employees are former Warfighters and are veterans,” said Lee Eady, Director of Business Development for LogiCore. “Our employees are very supportive of AMCOM and LogiCore’s mission is to support the Warfighter in both peace and war, anywhere, and anytime.”
