About the Conference

The Aerospace & Defense Industry Conference wants to help Wyoming manufacturers and technology companies get on the government radar and grow their business!

In partnership the Wyoming Federal Delegation, US Senator Cynthia Lummis, US Senator John Barrasso, and US Congresswoman Harriet Hageman, we are pleased to have hosted the 3rd Annual Aerospace &  Defense Industry Conference.

The Aerospace & Defense Industry Conference provides an opportunity for Wyoming manufacturers and technology companies to be introduced to the aerospace and defense (A&D) market through direct interaction with “Prime” A&D companies with operations in Colorado, Utah, Montana, and North and South Dakota.

The 2023 Aerospace and Defense Industry Conference featured three-days of guidance and insights for Wyoming businesses. 

Business liaison officers from NASA and Northrop Grumman and Wyoming businesses currently working in the government contracting field provided businesses with upcoming opportunities, the types of manufacturing the government is looking for, and the certifications needed to gain government contracts. The successful conference provided ample networking for Wyoming companies to connect with other companies across the state and national companies that need their help to maintain the supply chain.

Why Attend?

We are providing an exclusive opportunity for small businesses to rub shoulders with small business specialists and procurement officers from many well-established federal, regional, and state entities who want to partner with Wyoming manufacturers, but first, these small businesses must be prepared to subcontract properly.

This year we are extended our conference, adding Resource Day on Day 1, hosted by APEX Accelerator (formerly PTAC), Manufacturing Works, and the Small Business Administration.

This additional day is meant to provided our Wyoming small businesses with the actionable resources they need to get into government contracting, network with businesses who need their help, and sustainably grow their bottom line for years to come. Please get in touch with your local WySBDC to get pointed in the right direction!

In addition, with the support of our federal delegation, we make sure our voices are heard and we become active participants in the aerospace and defense funnel happening across the nation.
