DSEI 2015 is the largest fully integrated Defence and Security show in the world, featuring Air, Naval, Land & Security content. From 15th to 18th September in ExCeL, London,UK.
Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI), the world-leading integrated event for the display of aerospace, land, maritime and security capabilities, is set to provide a unique global business development platform. Between 15 – 18 September 1,500 exhibitors representing over 50 countries will engage with 32,000 visitors from around the world in the halls of ExCeL London.
The event’s ever growing strength across the spectrum of defence and security is evidenced by the anticipated attendance of 150 programmed official delegations and more than 2,800 VIPs. Drawn from responsible nations from all four continents, they include top-level figures from the procurement and operational communities, as well as government representatives. UK Government defence Ministers and the four Service Chiefs will be using DSEI to communicate key messages, while all three branches of the nation’s Armed Forces will be presenting their capabilities. Other major military powers are also fielding prominent speakers. In total there will be over 300 keynote speeches and presentations as DSEI stamps its mark as one of the industry’s most influential platforms for the discussion of agenda-topping issues.
The exhibitor line-up is a Who’s Who of the prime contractor sector, featuring such industry giants as Airbus Defence & Space, BAE Systems, Bell Helicopters, Boeing, CAE, Finmeccanica, General Dynamics, L3, Lockheed Martin, MBDA, Northrop Grumman, Rafael, Rolls-Royce, SAAB and Thales. DSEI is also a crucially important sales arena for SMEs, who will be there in record numbers this year. A matchmaking scheme helps SMEs access the primes’ supply chains, while visitor and exhibitors alike can benefit from free workshops on how to do business in major markets, both mature and emerging.
