ADS, Inc. is basking in the afterglow of Warrior Expo East 2017. Described as being “…possibly the best industry show” by Breach Bang Clear, this year was no exception with the biggest turnout in exhibitors, attendees, and local/national media.

Keynote speaker General Martin Dempsey, U.S. Army, Retired, drew a huge crowd on day one of the show as he addressed “Leading When It Really Matters.” General Dempsey’s message, based on personal experience and pure gumption, resonated loud and clear with active duty military, law enforcement, first responders, and procurement specialists alike.

Also new to this year, countless demos took center stage in the Virginia Beach Convention Center exhibit hall and drew the crowds in for interactive role-playing combat, medical, and communications scenarios. Of note was the Prolonged Field Care Scenario, featuring six ADS suppliers and the LBT K9 vs. the LBT ADAPTIV Suit!

Don’t just take our word for it. We’ve compiled a list of the top trending tweets, mentions, and posts from the brands you love. In case you missed it (ICYMI), see what they were buzzing about in the hours leading up to and during Warrior Expo East 2017.
