Best Sapper Competition and Engineer Week, 24–26 April 2017

The Army Engineer Association is proud to support the Annual Best Sapper Competition at Fort Leonard Wood, MO, from 24–26 April. One of the toughest competitions in the U.S. Army will start with 50 of the best Army Sappers in the world. At the end there will be one winning team. Leaders from all over the world will come to witness this event.
An important part of this week will be the Industry Exhibition in Nutter Field House on Fort Leonard Wood. It will provide a unique opportunity to speak with Engineer leaders about the challenges of the complex environment and well as the opportunity to discus future Army requirements with the MSCoE Combat Development Directorate. This important event is an excellent opportunity for captains of industry to demonstrate and dialogue with key personnel. They will also have the opportunity to discuss their products and best practices with them during scheduled one-on-one meetings. Our sponsorship program is an excellent way to optimize your company’s branding and marketing opportunity.
