American Business Development Group to Attend Over 35 Trade Shows, Conferences and Defense Related Events in 2017!

You have to go where the customers are if you are assisting Department of Defense (DoD) related companies with marketing to the military. The decision makers in our customer base (Soldiers, Sailors, Airman and Marines) are a very hands on bunch. They want to touch the product and have a personal relationship with the provider. For this very reason, American Business Development Group (ABDG) will be attending multiple DoD related trade shows, conferences and defense related events with our clients in 2017.

If your company is not meeting or exceeding its sales goals in the DoD market then outsourcing may be a solution to meeting your objectives. Please contact Elisha Kehl at or 703-824-0300 to schedule a meeting with our team.

Members of the ABDG team will also be available at the conferences listed below to discuss how we can assist your organization in the Defense, National Guard and Homeland Security markets.
