– ABOUT PACIFIC TECH 2022 –

The Pacific Tech 2022 Conference, offered by the Hawaii Technology Development Corporation (HTDC) and the Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism (DBEDT), brings together over 35 Contracting Officers, Technology Scouts from multiple Combatant Commands, WERX Program Managers, Rapid Contracting Vehicle Managers, OTA Government Representatives, Contracting Experts, and Primes seeking partners at a fraction of the cost of other conferences. 

This year’s conference will take place from October 24-26 in Honolulu, Hawaii at the Hawaii Convention Center. Approximately 150 attendees from Pacific region as well as federal agency representatives are expected to participate.

Compared to recent conferences offering fewer contract briefings charging thousands of dollars, Pacific Tech 2022 registration is a great value with registration at $400 for three days and Tech Showcase tables for $50. 

In addition to U.S. Indo-Pacific Command’s $27 Billion over the next 5 years, STRATCOM, SOUTHCOM, NORTHCOM and others will see dramatic increases in contracting.

See press release.

– WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE? –

Hawaii’s geographic location in the middle of the Pacific makes it a critical piece in U.S. military strategic operations as well as the expansive (and expanding) military presence in the islands. There is a huge opportunity for Pacific region tech and engineering companies, especially small businesses that are able to offer new and innovative technology solutions to government challenges they are unable to solve internally. This conference will focus on connecting small businesses with government customers as well as prime contractors to accelerate their technology adoption and more effectively help our warfighters.
