  • Highlighting existing products/capabilities
  • Rolling out new products & capabilities

  • Identifying new customers and industry partners

Many professional service providers also view TID as an opportunity to network with potential customers while also being seen as a partner that understands and prioritizes relationships with aerospace, defense, manufacturing, engineering, and technology businesses.
