EVENT DETAILS

NCMS is pleased to partner with the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PSNS & IMF) on a Technology Showcase that will be held September 14-15, 2022.

For industry and academic partners, participating in this Technology Showcase will provide an unparalleled opportunity to spotlight new innovations—and to potentially work with the PSNS & IMF Technology Insertion Group, which is committed to transitioning needed technologies into the shipyard.

This year’s Technology Showcase—like last year’s event—is expected to attract an audience of hundreds of teammates and decision-makers. The Technology Showcase generates interest for the PSNS & IMF leadership, engineering, and production management teams because NCMS’s cooperative agreement creates a framework where the command and private industry partners can collaborate to develop customized solutions that meet the shipyard’s specific needs.

The shipyard’s Technology Insertion Group leadership diligently seeks to transition technologies that will help the command meet the mission of maintaining, modernizing, and retiring the Navy’s fleet. In recent years, the command’s innovation team has helped with more than a dozen procurements, site visits, and demonstrations—and plans to pursue even more.

The PSNS & IMF in Bremerton, WA, is the Pacific Northwest’s largest shore facility and has permanent sites in Bangor and Everett, Washington; in San Diego, California; and at Commander, Fleet Activities, Yokosuka, Japan. PSNS & IMF has been an integral part of the Navy since 1891 and provides high quality, on-time maintenance, modernization, recycling, and support that helps assure America’s dominance at sea.

The innovation team at PSNS & IMF seeks innovative technologies to assist with several maintenance and sustainment priorities, including:

• Advanced/additive manufacturing
• Business IT and Analytics
• CBM+/Predictive Maintenance
• Coatings and corrosion prevention
• Energy, environmental, health & safety
• Enhanced inspection
• Facilities and Industrial Process Modernization
• Reliability improvement (Hardware)
• Workforce Development/Visualization

Exhibiting at the NCMS Technology Showcase

Exhibition spaces are limited so reserve yours quickly. Additionally, only one space will be allocated per company.

This will be a great opportunity for the end users to get hands-on experience with your technology. To provide the most impact, actual demonstrations of capabilities when applicable are highly encouraged.

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

Exhibiting Details

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

Wifi Internet Access: Complimentary Wifi

Shipping: Equipment can not arrive earlier than 24 hours prior to Wednesday, September 14th.  Any shipments sent before this time will not be received.

How to get the most out of your participation at an NCMS Technology Showcase

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.
  • Online Directory: As a part of exhibitor registration, you are required to submit company and technical abstracts. To make a lasting impact, be sure to complete this package by submitting your logo and quad chart to eventsupport@ncms.org.

Best Practices for Submission of Exhibitor Materials

NCMS will provide attendees with an 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 9/2/22.
