PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- More than 30 technology and tech-related vendors descended on Peterson Air Force Base April 14 to display their wares and meet customers at the Tech & Space Ops Support Showcase held at The Club.

Whether it was emergency management software, nearly indestructible communications devices and computers, cyber security solutions, secure video conferencing equipment or data storage you were looking for, attendees had multiple options at the show.

Even with the 31st Annual Space Symposium taking place in town, there was a steady stream of interested people visiting vendor booths. The show provided opportunities not only to demonstrate goods and services for potential customers, but to connect with existing customers as well.

"I have customers here on base that came by and brought their team with them," said Dana Sanders Nickel, one of the many vendors at the expo.

Customers and those seeking solutions to tech quandaries found having so many vendors in one place beneficial. Capt. Barney Ales, Headquarters Air Force Space Command, thought it was helpful to see what types of things vendors have available for potential needs.

"It is always good to have dialogue between the military and industry," Ales said. "Because industry provides solutions you sometimes didn't know about."
