SC21 is the largest supply chain improvement programme in the UK Aerospace and Defence sectors.

This year, we have seen record attendances at these events, bringing together an audience of over 250 professionals and representatives from leading customers and prominent manufacturers. This event provides an excellent networking opportunity and gives attendees the chance to meet with the ADS SC21 project team, industry-leading companies, primes and the Ministry of Defence.

The theme for this event is accelerating competitiveness in Aerospace and Defence supply chains. In addition, you will have an opportunity to find out about the industry’s latest news, including an update on the recent Aerospace Industrial Strategy Sector Deal.

Table top displays

The conference also offers table top displays giving companies the opportunity to raise their profile and showcase their products and services. Please note that these will be sold on a first come, first served basis.
