CALENDAR OF HASBAT EVENTS
Guest Speaker: Kevin Maney, Author of Play Bigger: How Pirates, Dreamers, and Innovators Create and Dominate Markets
The founders of a respected Silicon Valley advisory firm study legendary category-creating companies and reveal a groundbreaking discipline called category design.
Winning today isn’t about beating the competition at the old game. It’s about inventing a whole new game—defining a new market category, developing it, and dominating it over time. You can’t build a legendary company without building a legendary category. If you think that having the best product is all it takes to win, you’re going to lose.
In this farsighted, pioneering guide, the founders of Silicon Valley advisory firm Play Bigger rely on data analysis and interviews to understand the inner workings of “category kings”— companies such as Amazon, Salesforce, Uber, and IKEA—that give us new ways of living, thinking or doing business, often solving problems we didn’t know we had.
In Play Bigger, the authors assemble their findings to introduce the new discipline of category design. By applying category design, companies can create new demand where none existed, conditioning customers’ brains so they change their expectations and buying habits. While this discipline defines the tech industry, it applies to every kind of industry and even to personal careers.
Crossing the Chasm revolutionized how we think about new products in an existing market. The Innovator’s Dilemma taught us about disrupting an aging market. Now, Play Bigger is transforming business once again, showing us how to create the market itself.
We’re excited to announce the Chamber's Washington Update with U.S. Senator Richard Shelby. He will update the Huntsville business community on critical issues impacting North Alabama, including key NASA, military, FBI and ATF programs in the region.
Sen. Shelby is the senior United States Senator from Alabama and one of the most senior members of the Senate. He serves as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriations and he also chairs the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee. Shelby is also a senior member on the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee and the Committee on Rules and Administration. He serves on the Committee on Environment and Public Works as well.
This event is traditionally one of our largest events of the year – more than 900 Chamber members are expected to attend. We anticipate this breakfast will sell out before the registration deadline.

The 2019 AUSA ILW Global Force Symposium & Exposition is a three-day event that will include presentations from the
Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition, Logistics and Technology), the United States Army Materiel Command, and the United States Army Training and Doctrine Command.
This symposium will explore the capabilities outlined in the Army Operating Concept and how the force transforms from being adaptive to driving innovation for Force 2025 and beyond. Special guest presentations, coupled with panel discussions from our senior military and industry leaders, will address critical points of acquisition, research and development, and partnering between military and industry. For the Army, this means restructuring military-industrial programs. The Army must take a hard look at its acquisition processes, with an eye towards the future, to maintain a competitive overmatch against potential adversaries.
