Our Meetings

DSI’s team specializes in the research and development of mission critical, senior level symposiums and summits for the Military and Federal Government sectors. Our non partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers. Each of our events is designed to foster relevant discussion and debate, while forging solutions to the pressing needs of our speaker faculties. Our primary value lies in the extensive time and effort we dedicate to researching and understanding the complex challenges and current and future mission needs of the Military andFederal Government.

Our events range from targeted high level symposiums, to broader summits, depending on the needs of the community.
