Several DoD, federal agency and military representatives were in attendance as well.

Oak Grove found valuable networking opportunities with like-minded people throughout the day. The venue was more intimate than larger conferences, but the quaint atmosphere allowed attendees and exhibitors alike ample time to mingle and get to know each other.
