Maryland’s 11 military installations throughout the State help to strategically position all of our private sector industries for increased growth and profit margins.  While many innovations and advancements take place ‘on base’ in areas outside of our local jurisdictions, every community can identify opportunities to acquire these advancements and turn them into commercial applications for our companies.  The 2017 MEDA Fall Conference is designed to address the many ways economic developers can position the companies in their region to take full advantage of this economic driver, as well as the variety of network opportunities available to all businesses throughout the State of Maryland.

Sponsored by: St. Mary's County Department of Economic Development
