About the event

Calling Card

DSEI is a leading international trade show servicing the defence and security industry, which has seen rapid changes due to digitalization and cyber threats. DSEI offers military personnel as well as experts in the defence sector to experience how far technology has evolved. DSEI stands for Defence Systems and Equipment International Exhibition and Conference, and offers the entire value chain to trade visitors. The exhibition grounds are divided into the following zones – Land, Naval, Aerospace, Security and Joint. The event is based in London and operates out of ExCeL London once every two years. Over the course of four days, you’re able to experience the future of the defence sector and see it in action, network with head procurement officials and gain access to new regions. 

Business Potential 

As we’ve already covered, one can discover any and every piece of technology and equipment at DSEI. Across all exhibition areas, you have weapons, tactical equipment, ammunitions, first aid equipment, infrared systems, emergency equipment, radar equipment and the latest generation of digital solutions. Electronic warfare is the fastest growing sector and this is reflected in the CYBER HUB, which hosts everything from telecommunication systems to high-tech surveillance. There will be medical presentations and maritime live demos. SAAB, THALES, Qnetiq, Otokar, FFG, BAE Systems and Ultra are only some of the companies with ties to DSEI. As we’ve already said, the audience covers military delegation and big players in the private sector. There are SMEs, pre-qualified industry visitors, OEMs, senior procurement staff teams, system integrators and so many more.  

Did You Know? 

Editions tend to operate under specific themes. For DSEI 2021, the overall subject is the Integrated Response to Future Threats. A topic brought on by the UK Ministry of Defence and so important that it has been adopted across the entire Day Zero Conference. The relationship between military and industry is at the heart of this subject. DSEI has a very well developed support program. Along the Conference, there are six seminars, additional specialized hubs and workshops available. There are going to be focused sessions on a variety of subjects. The two workshops for 2021 are 'Doing Business In....' focused on different regions and a Defence Engineering Skills Workshop. At the end, you return home with the latest knowledge and more professional contacts from across the world.
