NIST Industry Day | On-Site Agency Visit

This is an opportunity to hear from National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) leadership about their important mission, a multi-million dollar laboratory expansion, cybersecurity implementation, and vendor opportunities in construction and IT.

Participants will also have the opportunity to meet representatives from many of the NIST Operating Units and contracting officials at exhibitor tables,  speak one-on-one with the panelists, and network with fellow government contractors.
