American Business Development Group to Attend the 2023 Association of the United States Army Annual Meeting and Exhibition!

American Business Development Group (ABDG) is pleased to announce we will be attending the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Exhibition, October 9th-11th, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

This is the first major AUSA conference in FY2024. More Army senior leaders attend this conference than any other during the year. This will also be the first opportunity to hear the new Army Chief of Staff address his priorities for the Army. Defense Industry representatives from companies large and small attend this conference in large numbers. By its sheer size, this conference presents a great opportunity to connect with Government and Industry Senior Leaders, energize or reenergize working relationships, and pursue new opportunities in the defense sector.
