Welcome to the ADS Pavilion – our sell-out United Kingdom pavilion at DSEI 2023, where more than 190 members have joined us to showcase our outstanding defence industry.

As you tour the exhibitors, you will see why the UK’s innovative defence sector is such a source of pride in our country, and how we continue to strengthen our position as one of the largest global defence exporters in the world.

As we protect our nations and maintain our international alliances, the UK defence industry continues to excel and deliver. Major programmes such as Boxer, Challenger 3, Skynet 6A and the Royal Navy’s Type 26 and Type 31 frigates have continued to progress, as well as new landmark international programmes such as the Global Combat Air Programme and AUKUS.

The UK defence sector has been an international leader in its support for Ukraine and our continued international partnerships and investment in defence will help the industry strengthen and grow for years to come.

Join ADS during DSEI week.

As well as hosting the ADS Pavilion at DSEI, ADS Group is also:

Featuring on and moderating a range of panels including:

  • Senior ADS Group employees will represent industry on 6+ panels, including on AUKUS, GCAP, and as a representative voice of SMEs.
