Funding and commercialization solutions at biennial event

HONOLULU—Pacific Tech 2022, offered by the Hawaii Technology Development Corporation (HTDC) and the Department of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism (DBEDT), returns to Hawaii with a wide array of expert speakers from government entities looking for new solutions, prime contractors that need subcontractors, and new funding vehicles looking to increase the speed of solving government problems with small business solutions.

This year’s conference will take place from October 24-26, 2022, in Honolulu, Hawaii at the Hawaii Convention Center. Approximately 150 attendees from across the Pacific region as well as federal agency representatives are expected to participate.

U.S. Indo-Pacific Command’s $27 billion investment over the next five years and Hawaii’s geographic location in the middle of the Pacific makes the region a critical piece in U.S. military strategic operations. Pacific Tech 2022 will feature over 35 Contracting Officers, Technology Scouts from multiple combatant commands, WERX Program Managers, Rapid Contracting Vehicle Managers, OTA Government Representatives, Contracting Experts, and Primes seeking partners at a fraction of the cost of other similar conferences.

Speakers include Dr. George Kailiwai III, Director, Requirements and Resources (J8), Headquarters, U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (HQ USINDOPACOM); Science & Tech Advisors from multiple services; and Erik Page-Littleford, Senior Technology Policy Advisor to the SBA.

The conference title sponsor is Decisive Point, a venture capital firm investing in deep-tech innovations for security, health, energy, and infrastructure. Along with Decisive Point, Pacific Tech 2022 is proud to recognize additional sponsors that include: KPMG, NecoTech, Premier Solutions HI LLC., RVCM, University of Hawaii Office of Innovation & Commercialization, the Chamber of Commerce HI, RTI International, and PacMar Technologies.
