Northern Colorado Manufacturing Partnership is pleased to host the largest manufacturing trade show in the state showcasing Colorado’s expanding manufacturing sector, connecting suppliers, manufacturers, and public partners. With 125 booths featured in 2019 and over 900 attendees, the 2020 show is expected to offer more business opportunities than you will find anywhere else! Attendees of the show include business owners, presidents, CEOs, sales and business development managers, sales representatives, buyers, marketing coordinators, students, educators and more. Over 70% of exhibitors gained business from exhibiting NOCOM in previous years.
Our theme 2020, “What is Manufacturing? It’s more than we think!” will challenge us all to think outside of the typical understanding of manufacturing. Did you know manufacturing is the mechanical, physical or chemical transformation of materials or substances into new products including assembling of component parts, blending of materials or liquids? Did you know products could be finished or semi-finished for further manufacturing? Join us at NOCOM to share what you manufacture and what it means to you!

SAVE THE DATE: Cybersecurity for Defense Contractors
Date: April 21, 2020
Time: 9 am – 5 pm
Location: The University Club Denver
Address: 1673 Sherman Street Denver, CO, 80202
The Department of Defense released its anticipated final version 1.0 of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) on 31 January 2020. Certification requirements will be included in RFPs beginning September 2020. DoD is funding this April 21 workshop—one of only 23 being offered throughout the US through a grant to NIST’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) network. Cybersecurity experts will lead workshop participants through the steps needed to comply with DFARS 7012 requirements, implement the 110 NIST SP 800-171 security controls, prepare for their CMMC audit, and manage cyber-related business risks.
The Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) has already launched its DFARS 7012 compliance audits for supply chain contractors. Manufacturer’s Edge (Colorado’s MEP Center), NIST, DoD, and other groups are partnering to assist manufacturing companies in the DoD and aerospace supply chain.
Note: Per DoD grant terms funding this workshop, this invitation is intended primarily for manufacturers currently in, or contemplating engagement in, the defense and aerospace supply chains.
