DLA Land and Maritime Supplier Conference & Exposition is a two-day event hosted by the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) and DLA Land and Maritime to provide a forum for current and potential vendors to discuss future logistics support strategies, challenges and to streamline efforts to better support the Warfighter.  The conference will be in Columbus, OH at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, June 19-20, 2018. 

This year’s theme “Improving Warfighter Readiness by Improving Industry Alliances and Reforming Business Processes” speaks to the Secretary of Defense’s priorities to Restore Military Readiness as we Build a more Lethal Force, Strengthen Alliances and Attract New Partners and bring Business Reforms to the Department of Defense.  DLA’s business model is evolving from a primarily transactional model to one that values long-term relationships. To help advance our evolution, DLA is executing an active Industry Engagement Plan that fosters innovation through research and development that fully supports the Secretary’s effort. Improving Alliances and Reforming Business Processes expands opportunity for all businesses, invites smarter and innovative ways of doing business and creates greater synergy with our service partners and industry to best support the Warfighter.

DLA welcomes new businesses that want to join the team and those businesses that have been working with us for years. Our shared conference goal is improving alliances and reforming business processes to continually improve Warfighter readiness.
