October 6: Lockheed Martin and Bell “Great Power Competition” Hosted by NDIA in DFW

*** Zoom and in-person options available for attendance. Ticket Details below ***

*** 2 Panels for 1 Ticket***


The Industry has shifted in recent years and is now fully in Great Power Competition with China. This is different than anything we’ve seen before. It has similarities to the Cold War, but the Russians did not have thousands of their people attending our Universities, working at our companies, and we didn’t have factories and a significant amount of business interest overseas. Exactly how this time is different is the question we’ll be taking on in “Great Power Competition.”

NDIA champions, builds and convenes the forums that tackle the industry’s most challenging issues. The Lone Star Chapter has been right in the middle of having the most relevant speakers of our time.
