Department of Defense to Brief Clothing and Textile Industry June 15-16, 2015, in Cherry Hill N.J.

DLA Troop Support Clothing & Textiles will hold a Joint Advance Planning Brief to Industry (JAPBI) on June 15-16, 2015, at the Crowne Plaza Philadelphia-Cherry Hill, 2349 W. Marlton Pike, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002.

All details about the event, registration, and hotel reservations can be found at the following web page:

The goal of the event is for DLA and their military Service partners to jointly brief the industrial base on future requirements and business opportunities for clothing and individual equipment. In addition to DLA Troop Support, there will be briefings and presentations from each of the Services' program offices including U.S. Army Soldier System Protection & Individual Equipment, Navy Exchange Service Command, Marine Corps Systems Command, Air Force Uniform Office, U.S. Coast Guard, and the U.S. Army Security Assistance Command. Speakers also include the Director of the Defense Logistics Agency, Lt. Gen. Andrew Busch, and the Commander of DLA Troop Support, BG (P) Steven Shapiro.

The program begins on Monday, June 15, at noon (event registration from 08:00 to 11:45 PM). The start time for Tuesday, June 16, is 08:00 AM. Please note that footwear and gloves will not be presented at the sessions on Tuesday because each subcommittee has opted to have a stand-alone meeting in the near future.

The JAPBI is open to all members of the supply chain. Registration will be closed on June 5, 2015 or once maximum capacity is reached, whichever comes first. There is no attendance fee and the dress code is business casual. Break refreshments, breakfast, lunch, or other meals are not provided. The hotel has a restaurant on-site and a list of local restaurants within a close proximity to the hotel will be provided. The schedule on Tuesday will allow for sufficient time for lunch.
