Overview:
This event offers a rare opportunity to connect directly with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) procurement leaders visiting from Washington D.C
DHS is interested in connecting with businesses that supply a wide range of products and services.

Attend the Northwest Homeland Security Conference and find out how you can supply Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agencies including Customs & Border Protection (CBP), Coast Guard, Federal Emergency Management (FEMA), Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE), Science & Technology Directorate, Secret Service, Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD)…. and grow your business!!   

Program includes:

  • Presentations from DHS officials
  • Around the room introductions: 30 seconds to introduce your company to our DHS guests and fellow attendees
  • Innovation Roundtables: these small interactive group sessions, led by DHS procurement, will center around specific topics. Topics may include input on industry solutions to big challenges, open Q & A sessions with agency leaders, transitioning from a DoD to DHS supplier. Topics will be selected based on a pre-event survey of you and your fellow attendees.

Who Should Attend:
Middle and upper managers, business development and contracting officers from primes and subcontractors in industries that support, or seek to support, all DHS agencies. New to government contracting? Join a pre-event webinar that will help you prepare for this program (details coming soon).

Sponsorship starts at $1,500 including attendee passes, access to the VIP breakfast, and promotion of your support. Discounts available for PNDC Members. Contact [email protected] for details.
