Warrior Expo East Debuts Expeditionary Combat and Support Solution Center as Well as Dining for a Cause Program

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (July 2, 2015) – ADS, Inc. has always put its customers first, especially when it comes to the company’s Warrior Expo. This year, ADS is taking it to the next level by rolling out two new programs designed to enhance the customer experience and give back to the military community.

Warrior Expo is a premiere defense industry event designed to bring end-users, program managers and procurement specialists together with industry-leading product and service providers in an environment specifically for government and defense organizations. While the traditional exhibit booth setup will be the primary layout for the show, ADS is moving toward putting some of the innovative solutions in context by integrating products from key partners in an Expeditionary Combat and Support Solution Center.

The idea behind the [Expeditionary Combat and Support] Solution Center is to have customers see, in-person, how the products they need for their missions can work together,” said Meghan Parker, Combat Support Equipment Supplier Account Manager and the brain-child behind the idea. “We want to give our customers a complete solution. It’s not enough that we tell them. Sometimes, the best way is to show them.

The Expeditionary Combat and Support Solution Center will highlight mobile dental and medical response systems, an HDT Global Tactical Operations Center (TOC) as well as a tools, equipment and kitting (TEK) resource hub. The Solution Center will also demonstrate the applicability of hybrid and renewable power sources, including rugged solar energy solutions for expeditionary and remote power needs and a hybrid renewable energy power management system designed to power critical assets in the most demanding environments.

Warrior Expo also continues to host ADS’s non-profit partners on Non-profit Row at the Expo show center. This year, the company will build on those relationships with the Dining for a Cause program. This special project involves partnering with select local restaurants to raise funds for the USO of Hampton Roads and Central Virginia (USO HRCV). During the Expo, when vendors and customers visit these establishments, 10 percent of the proceeds from their visit will be donated to the USO HRCV.

This program is especially meaningful to us because it is our chance to work with some amazing organizations to give back to the military community. Their needs are at the core of our mission,” said Deborah Gries, ADS’ Corporate Social Responsibility Coordinator. “It’s more than just saying we care about the military community. It’s another way for us to deliver on our promise to serve those who serve.

Warrior Expo will feature Breakout Sessions, Demonstrations and an interactive game of TicTacToe.  To register and learn more about Warrior Expo East check out the information below or CLICK HERE.

All in all, I think what we, as a company, are really driving toward is taking our customer service to the next level and presenting customers with the complete solution,” said Ryan Angold, Vice President of Market Sales. “If they can only attend one show per year, we want them to choose ours because they know they will find the very best support and everything they need to get the job done.
