LONDON – THE PLACE WHERE BUSINESS IS DONE
London remains a powerhouse when it comes to industry events. There are hundreds of years of history that just draw companies in and you should consider joining in the party. Here are just a few of the major exhibitions and tradeshows that are a must-attend. The rule is: one event per industry.
DSEI – PROTECT THE WORLD WITH THE BEST OF THEM
The defence and security industry celebrates innovation and achievement at DSEI and the statistics are killer – over 30,000 attendees, 121 countries represented, 97 official delegations present. This is where you should pay all your dues, because you’re surrounded with top level military staff. You better know how to stand at attention!
PRO TIP: London is expensive, but thankfully it has one of the best public transport systems in the world so it’s easy to commute. If your budget doesn’t match that of a conglomerate, the best move in this situation is to book a hotel a bit further away from the tradeshow. Go Fair ltd knows the right places.

This event is currently celebrating 30 years since its first iteration, which is how you know it’s worth attending.
