An Afternoon Discussion and Networking Reception:
Global Opportunities and Challenges for Aerospace, Defense and Government Services Companies
On Tuesday, October 14th, the Squire Patton Boggs Aerospace, Defense & Government Services Industry Group, Avascent and Banner Public Affairs are holding an invitation-only afternoon discussion and networking reception with former Senator Jim Talent during the week of the AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition.
This event will provide the opportunity to hear about the state of affairs of the US Defense Budget and the challenges it poses to US federal government contractors. With a shrinking and shifting Defense budget, US companies are looking to go global for opportunities. However, US companies are facing numerous challenges related to global competitiveness from countries such as China and India. We will have an interactive discussion on how US companies are dealing with this state of affairs with former Senator Jim Talent, a partner at Banner Public Affairs, as well as Jack Deschauer, a former Director of Senate Affairs in the Department of Defense and co-chair of Squire Patton Boggs’ Aerospace, Defense & Government Services Industry Group and Jon Barney, Managing Director of Avascent.
Following the discussion, there will be time to mingle with the former Senator and fellow colleagues. Refreshments will be provided throughout the event and hors d’oeuvres will be provided during the reception, which will be held on the Squire Patton Boggs rooftop, if the weather allows.
To request an invitation, please contact Ms. Emily Wolff at 202-626-6693.
