Defence Events

We facilitate the showcasing of defence capabilities by co-ordinating UK Pavilions at key global Defence trade shows and exhibitions. Many of these are hosted in partnership with UK Government. We also offer hospitality services and exhibiting opportunities at the biennial Farnborough International Airshow.

Training courses and workshops provide specialised and up to date knowledge on topics such as Ministry of Defence contracting frameworks, exporting regulations and procurement programmes. Webinars, conferences and briefings focus on market access and business development opportunities.

We partner with the Royal Navy and Army HQ on a number of symposia to provide industry updates on requirements and programmes.
