American Business Development Group to Participate in a Multitude of Defense-Related Events Throughout 2024!

In the dynamic landscape of the defense industry, maintaining a robust presence at DoD Industry events is important. American Business Development Group (ABDG) is excited to announce our strong participation in a variety of Department of Defense (DoD) trade shows, conferences, and defense-related events throughout CY2024.

Whether you are an experienced defense contractor or a company with a product you believe meets the needs of a known government material requirement, choosing which events to attend and/or maximizing opportunities while at an event can be challenging. ABDG’s team of acquisition professionals can help guide you towards the right government/industry events to attend and either attend with you or on your behalf. We also have extensive DoD acquisition experience to assist you in entering the government market and/or assist you in the development and execution of a marketing strategy designed to establish or grow market share.

We encourage you to contact Elisha Kehl, our Director of Operations, at or 703-824-0300 to arrange a meeting at one of these events or a time that best meets your schedule. Let us show you how we can establish or grow your presence in the DoD market.
