Modern Day Marine (MDM) Exposition and Conference- will be held at Quantico Marine Corps Base, Virginia 27-29 Sept 2011.  A "Team AUS" Expo Stand will be at location # 3231 in the Main Tent- "A".  As you finish registration enter through the right-most door and come down the right Main Aisle.  Our new, larger stand will make it easier for us to welcome you and share some Australian hospitality.  Product briefings will be on-going throughout the day in our in-booth conference room.
 
Association of the US Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Exposition 9-12 October 2011 - Convention Center, Washington, DC.  A "Team AUS" Expo Stand Stand will be at location #4425 in the Main Hall.  Since AUSA has now expanded to  2 exhibition halls at the DC Convention Center, Team Australia will be in the original largest hall one level below the Registration Area.  Stand # 4425 is located to your left upon coming down the escalators and proceeding to the left on the first Main Aisle running the length of the hall.  While it is in the same general area near the business-to-business suites, you will see our larger (6-fold) space between the two main aisles.
