SPOTLIGHT – 2013 STENNIS INDUSTRY DAYS – THE BUSINESS OF DOING BUSINESS AT STENNIS SPACE CENTER
On February 27 and 28 businesses from across the US gathered for the 2013 Stennis Industry Days held at the IP Casino in Biloxi and hosted by the Mississippi Enterprise for Technology drawing over 300 attendees.
On Wednesday, the 27th, exhibitors and individual registrants were treated to a drive along the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast as they traveled to Stennis Space Center and the INFINITY Science Center for a tour sponsored by Jacobs – FOSC. Jacobs has the Facility Operating Services Contract (FOSC) at Stennis Space Center.
“Industry Days is an important event which fosters better communication between Stennis organizations and local companies. It is a great way to help small businesses learn about business opportunities at Stennis and at the same time help Stennis get a better value for each dollar spent,” states Ken Human, NASA’s Associate Director at Stennis. “I was impressed by the number of companies that attended and the diversity of companies looking to do business at SSC.”
