Forty companies to take part in FH technology expo Wednesday

The annual Fort Huachuca technology expo will showcase cyber security, video teleconferencing, encryption technology and more on Wednesday at the Thunder Mountain Activity Centre, here. The free event will have 40 companies on hand providing live demonstrations in the latest technology from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

“It’s a great buffet of technology … we worked really hard to get feedback and to make sure we tailor it to Fort Huachuca’s mission,” stated Katie Johnson, event manager.

The National Conference Services, Inc., headquartered in Maryland, sponsors the event each year on Fort Huachuca and military installations across the world.

“The technology expo is a great way for people to stay ahead of the curve … it’s a really great opportunity for all the personnel on Fort Huachuca, and we’re really happy to bring it back each year,” Johnson added.

Most participating companies will have updated technology or be there for support missions, according to Johnson. Some companies are there to show people how to use products which they may have already purchased or to show new products in the technology field.

The technology expo is open to the entire Fort Huachuca community, and there is no cost to attend.
