About Event

Register Here

In 2021, we were pleased to have General Dynamics Electric Boat in town to meet with our region's companies. Newport News is a partner to GD-EB on the new Columbia-Class Submarines. There are huge opportunities for area companies to supply components for this submarine class for years to come. 

At this Supplier Forum, attendees will learn about Newport News Shipbuilding, the submarine industry and how to navigate the process of becoming a supplier to Newport News. The goal is to have attendees walk away with an understanding of where their products/services fit into this complex supply chain and to determine next steps for becoming a supplier. 

Bring your questions and your value prop. 

Who Should Attend? 
This event is for companies that are interested in supplying to or that want to expand the products they supply to the submarine industry.  Companies who are doing market research into product feasibility and market fit may also benefit from attending. 

If you have any questions about whether or not your company is a good fit to attend, please contact Monica Takacs at
