This Expo continues a growth explosion with exhibitors and attendance from JB MDL. Joint Base McGuire/Dix/Lakehurst is home to more than 80 mission partners and 40 mission commanders providing a wide range of combat capability.
The 2005 Base Realignment and Closure legislation Recommendation 146 directed the relocation of installation support functions for New Jersey's Fort Dix and Naval Air Engineering Station Lakehurst to McGuire Air Force Base. JB MDL is home to the 87th Air Base Wing, which provides installation management support for 3,933 facilities with an approximate value of $9.3 billion in physical infrastructure. More than 42,000 Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Coast Guardsmen, civilians and their family members living and working on and around JB MDL contribute to the economic impact for the state of New Jersey. The Expo is co-hosted by the 87th CS, Fort Dix NEC and AFCEA Philadelphia Chapter and will be promoted to all major commands and tenant units at JB MDL and will be the one opportunity in 2018 to reach these DoD personnel in the only technology expo for the Joint Base this year. Make plans to participate early as this popular program always fills to capacity. Vendors who participate in the JB MDL Expo also like to exhibit in the Dover AFB Expo that takes place the day before.
