40-Year milestones marked by celebrations with Small Business, Academia, and Public Sector Executives

WASHINGTON, D.C. — BDPA Members, ICT Industry Mission-Partners, and Small Business executives visited Samsung’s Solutions Center during a 40th anniversary celebration and Holiday Soirée at 700 Penn in Washington, D.C. This season’s theme, “Innovation Beyond 5G“, was coined to welcome Industry’s next generation of professionals and students into our fifth decade of community service.

National BDPA’s Washington, D.C. Chapter (BDPADC) was chartered by Norman Mays in 1978. That same year, Samsung Electronics produced over 4 million black-and-white televisions, the most in the world. Later in 1978, Samsung Electronics established their first overseas office in the United States, Samsung Electronics America (SEA).

Mr. Terry Halvorsen (above and left photos), Executive Vice President and CIO for Samsung Electronics America, Inc., hosted Small Business executives and BDPA Members for a very unique Holiday gathering and tour of the new Capitol Hill facility.

Located at 700 Penn, the solutions center showcases 5G and Secure-5G solutions with modular LED display technologies tailored for a wide variety of vertical industry sectors, demonstrations, and related policies.
