Saalex Attends the NDIA 2016 Navy Gold Coast Conference

Camarillo, California – Saalex had another successful attendance at the National Defense Industry Association (NDIA) Navy Gold Coast 2016 conference this year. President/CEO Travis Mack, who has attended this conference for over 10 years, is constantly amazed by the coordination and thought that the NDIA implements into making the Navy Gold Coast a success each year.

The level of NDIA’s commitment to the event and to small businesses was evident by the line-up of senior speakers, as well the ease of accessibility made to the government entities to all that attended. We appreciate our senior civilian government and active duty representatives taking the time to explain the critical need and status of the Department of Navy and the Department of Defense Small Business procurement plans.

It was a pleasure attending panels hosted by the Navy Commands and meeting everyone at the conference. Thank you to all that stopped by our booth and left a business card with us. If we missed you, we hope to see you next year at the beautiful new venue: the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center in Old Town San Diego, CA.
