CAEDA/Forward Casper and Forward Sheridan is pleased to host the first ever A&D Industry Day in Casper Wyoming as part of its continuous mission to attract high value markets to Wyoming to support our diversification and business expansion goals. The conference has three primary goals: 1) connect Wyoming businesses to a high value, and consistent growth industry; 2) provide introductions to large prime contractors and; 3) inform on the mission and needs of the end user (US military). “This conference is the culmination of 18 months of market and business development activities and is intended to showcase quality Wyoming companies to the A&D Industry and provide a portal to transacting business in this mission-critical industry”, shared Charles Walsh, outgoing CAEDA CEO. “Wyoming is geographically and strategically located to support our warfighter mission through the quality workforce and companies that call Wyoming home”, said Walsh.

This is a low cost opportunity for every Wyoming business to learn about the A&D industry and its contract opportunities. We feel fortunate to have leaders from the Air Force, NASA, large prime contractors, and our local, state and federal delegates committing to make this a unique and productive conference. US Rep Liz Cheney and Governor Gordon will show their continued and unending commitment to the growth and diversification of Wyoming’s economy as guest speakers.

We wish to thank our partners, Forward Sheridan, Procurement Technical Assistance Center, Small Business Administration, and Wyoming Business Council for their contributions in making this event possible.

The prospective agenda is attached for immediate publication (see attachment). Conference registration is available at
