Last month’s Team Orlando Industry Capability Day presented by National Center for Simulation featured 14 companies sharing some of their newest innovations. The exhibiting companies varied in areas of speciality from medical to 3D printing to augmented and virtual reality to power supplies.

Mike Bennis, business development manager for Bren-Tronics, said he thought the Industry Capability Day was one of the best “small” capability events in which he’s participated. “I was busy from the time the doors opened through the time the event ended,” Bennis said. “I believe that hosting a small number of vendors enhanced the experience because the folks coming in to check out the technology were not overwhelmed with displays or technology. I was impressed with the number of people in key positions within the Team Orlando organizations that attended, which once again lends credibility of the entire event.

Sil Fon Tang, representing his Dutch-based company Medical-X, said it was an interesting event and aside from giving attendees a glimpse of Medical-X products, they were also able to learn from other companies about what products were currently in the market.

“We made some good possible contacts, as well as had interest from potential customers,” Tang said. “All in all it was a pleasant experience.”

The next Industry Capability Day will feature companies that will demonstrate prototypes that resulted from Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) awards with relevancy to the Modeling & Simulation Industry. The objective of this event on Oct. 20 is to assist small businesses in their pursuit of commercialization opportunities resulting from their SBIR Phase I and II Research/Research & Development (R/R&D) work.
