Future Leaders Pavilion




The Future Leaders Pavilion provides a venue for secondary school students to demonstrate technical projects they have developed which focus on modeling, simulation and training. The Pavilion also enables the students to experience the sights, sounds, and learning about high-end, critical technology only available at I/ITSEC. The caliber of student and projects are so high that some of the projects have won previously awarded national competitions.

Since 2002, secondary schools from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, New York State, Texas, Virginia, India, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom have been represented. We are expecting a return visit from those schools, plus additional students from other areas in the U.S. What a great glimpse of the future!

Please support these committed students who will in a few short years be working members of our professional community.

Sponsorships are invited for the Future Leaders Pavilion, which will be centrally located in the exhibit hall, allowing your company logo plenty of visibility to all attendees that pass by. Please direct your Sponsorship inquiries to Shannon Burch at (703) 247-9473 or sburch@NDIA.org.
