Due to the public safety risk posed by the heightened transmissibility and rising infection rates associated with the Delta variant of COVID-19, the Modern Day Marine Expo, scheduled for September 21 – 23, 2021 at MCB Quantico, VA, has officially been cancelled on the authority of the Commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen David H. Berger, USMC.

While we are deeply disappointed by this swift and unanticipated change in the COVID-19 situation, we are sustained by the prospect that a more dynamic, “next generation” version of the Modern Day Marine Expo is not far off – scheduled for 10 – 12 May, 2022 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.  We look forward to sharing the expanded lineup of participating DoD leaders and organizations that will consolidate MDM’s position as the essential “must attend” professional development forum for conveying Marine Corps messages and priorities to the critical constituencies with a bearing on Force Design 2030 objectives. 

We understand the financial implications that this situation is causing for our exhibitors, sponsors, and the host organizations – the Marine Corps League and the Marine Corps Association. You can expect a full FAQ in the next several days on our website, which will help address questions moving forward, to include a General Services Contractor action plan as soon as it’s in place. We are grateful for every member of the Marine Military Expo’s constituency and thank you for your understanding and patience. Our team is committed to each of you and we will be in touch at the earliest opportunity.

Stay safe, stay motivated, keep in step and Semper Fidelis.
