Stay ahead of the curve with SAME’s 2021 Virtual Capital Week, being held March 22-26, and featuring the FY2022 DOD & Federal Agency Program Briefings

During this members-only event, learn about the upcoming federal engineering, construction, and environmental programs; network with senior leaders; and hear directly from contracting representatives, flag and general officers, and other decision-makers within the engineering components of the military services and select federal agencies.

New this year, Capital Week will feature one-on-one “fireside” chats with the service chiefs to get details on the way ahead as well as industry-government engagement sessions, a virtual expo hall to support market research needs, and updates from Congressional staffers on how the new administration will be addressing strategic and budgetary decisions facing the federal A/E/C market.

Briefings & Executive Sessions

Each year, the DOD & Federal Agency Program Briefings offers senior-level insights on the government’s projected upcoming  engineering, construction and environmental programs. Presenting agencies this year include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Army Installation Management Command, Army & Air Force Exchange Service, Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command, Air Force Civil Engineer Center, Department of Energy, Department of Veterans Affairs, Defense Health Agency, General Services Administration, and Federal Emergency Management Agency, plus sessions on both federal environmental and technology programs. Attendees will get detailed information on upcoming projects along with forward-looking trends the A/E/C industry needs to be aware of to set their acquisition strategy for the coming years.

In addition, Capital Week will include executive sessions centered on key industry-government engagement topics (these sessions may be open only to senior-level attendees). Subjects include the USACE TORN Process; MILCON Insights from Staff Members on the House Armed Services Committee; the 2020 Water Resources Development Act & Beyond; and Cost Estimating on Federal Contracts.

The executive-level sessions reinforce SAME’s commitment to strengthening industry-government engagement and identifying and helping resolve infrastructure-related national security challenges.

Networking Opportunities

This year, the event will include virtual exhibits and one-on-one networking opportunities. Utilizing a robust and highly interactive platform, Capital Week will offer attendees the chance to chat privately and use video capability, participate in discussion groups, and download marketing materials and contract information.

The week also will include an online networking reception, activity breaks, and other informal opportunities to connect with other attendees and find the “spontaneous networking” that is so natural at in-person events but has been harder to replicate with virtual programs.

Registration, Exhibiting & More

Registration is now open for Capital Week. Early Bird rates end on February 11. Attendance is free for students and government/uniformed service attendees. Capital Week is an SAME members-only event. Individuals and organizations can become members in order to register and attend.

Companies interested in exhibiting virtually can choose between myriad options. Until face-to-face events can take place again, virtual events, such as Capital Week need to be an important part of any marketing and business development plan.
