Bringing Rapid Sustainment Solutions to the Warfighter

The 2024 Commercial Technologies for Maintenance Activities (CTMA) Partners Meeting & tabletop reception will be held May 7-9 at Graduate Providence Hotel in Providence, RI. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend this unique event designed to promote an exchange of ideas among maintenance and sustainment leaders in government, industry and academia. This event is the only DOD-wide forum dedicated to advancing maintenance and sustainment capabilities, where the primary focus is on innovations and ideas that drive the evolution of M&S strategies to promote warfighter readiness.

This year’s event will see the return of both the CTMA tabletop reception and the CTMA Technology Competition, both of which offer many opportunities for industry and academic partners to display next-generation technology solutions to reach a broad cross-section of decision makers throughout the DOD.

The CTMA Program brings the Department of Defense (DOD), industry, and academia together to provide technology demonstrations, evaluations, and validations. CTMA projects accelerate sustainment innovation, address materiel readiness challenges, and modernize our organic industrial base. For more information about the CTMA Program, please visit: https://www.ncms.org/ctma/about-ctma

*Times and locations are subject to change.

NCMS and the CTMA Program seek to support the National Defense Strategy by shining a spotlight on transformative maintenance and sustainment capabilities. The CTMA Technology Competition provides an opportunity for both commercial and government sources to showcase innovative ways of making maintenance and sustainment operations more agile, effective, efficient, and affordable.

Exhibit your Technology at the CTMA Partners Meeting

Be one of 30 companies to take your participation in the CTMA Partners Meeting to the next level as an exhibitor. As an exhibitor, you will be able to demonstrate and discuss your innovative maintenance and sustainment solutions directly with DOD personnel.

As part of your exhibitor registration, you also get the same great experience as an attendee of the CTMA Partners Meeting.  If your exhibition space needs to be staffed by additional people, please register as an attendee.

Space is limited to only 30 exhibition spaces, so reserve your space quickly. Additionally, only one space will be allocated per company.

If you have any questions about being an exhibitor, please contact eventsupport@ncms.org

Exhibit Space: Exhibitor registration includes one 6’ table with (2) chairs and a tablecloth.  Due to limited space, only one exhibitor space will be allocated per company.

Additional Staffing: Exhibitor Ticket includes one staff attendee registration.  Additional exhibitor support staff should register as an attendee.

How to get the most out of your participation at the CTMA Partners Meeting

Each exhibitor’s space will be visited by individuals representing Government, Industry, and Academia. Please have a prepared “elevator” description of your technology and how it will benefit maintenance and sustainment efforts. This prepared speech should engage your audience quickly. Be prepared to demonstrate your technology or offer a short presentation on how your technology works. Be sure that you have deliverables that speak to the benefits of your technology, and if possible, create handouts or other marketing collateral.

 

Actionable Items

  • Make sure your team has an elevator speech.  Be prepared to describe your technology solution/service and its benefits in 30 seconds or less.
  • Demo, demo, demo!  Demonstrations draw attention at the event.
  • Bring plenty of collateral!
  • Keep your exhibit space staffed.  Traffic is unpredictable and intermittent, so plan to have a representative at your table during all show hours.
  • Refrain from packing up or leaving before the event ends.  An empty tabletop reflects poorly upon your company/organization.

Best Practices for Submission of Exhibitor Materials

NCMS will provide attendees a 9” x 12” Exhibitor Directory that delivers a striking showcase for our exhibitors’ technology solutions. To make the best possible use of the print and online space, we ask that participating exhibitors provide us with a series of text blocks and, if available, high-quality graphics. That material will be used to create a page for each exhibitor that, in print includes a technology description and a highly readable quad chart. The online version will also include a company abstract. To make these user-friendly, we will limit the amount of text for each section.
Click here to view a sample print Exhibitor Directory page.

Additional best practices:

Company Abstract: (Max-250 words) Provide an overview of the products and/or services your organization provides, as well as your primary customer base.

Featured Technology: What is the name of the technology you want to feature?

Technology Short Description: (Max-250 words) Focus on the significant features and if available, provide data on where it has been successfully used. Try to refrain from repeating information that will appear in the quad chart.

Problem Statement: (Max-80 words) Highlight the challenges your technology solution has been designed to address. Short, bulleted statements tend to work best here.

Technology Solution Statement: (Max-80 words) Describe how your product or service solves the items listed in your problem statement.

Benefits Statement: (Max-80 words) Data-informed benefits in short, bulleted statements work best here.

Graphics: If you have photos, diagrams, or data tables, please ensure they have been saved as a high-resolution image (300 dpi or better).  All graphics should be emailed to eventsupport@ncms.org by 5/5/22.
