While no one knows to what degree or for how long, the 2012 presidential election made one thing clear: defense budgets will continue to shrink and companies doing business with the federal government need to be prepared to protect their margins. Join us for a lively panel discussion that will take a look at 2013 federal spending trends in the San Diego area* and then go into detail about what your organization can do to not only survive, but also thrive in the new era of defense spending.
