ADS NI in partnership with Invest NI and the RAF will be conducting this business engagement event with Northern Ireland industry. 

Following on from the excellent engagement event held in December where Team Tempest partners and RAF Capabilities Team presented to Northern Ireland Industry, this event will provide an opportunity for companies in the region to present some of the capabilities and areas of strength in the region. This will help prepare for a physical meeting in Belfast in the Autumn.
