DSEI 2015 - ExCel London, UK Defence & Security Exhibition

DSEI 2015, from 15 to 18 September in London, brings together the defence and security industry to source the latest equipment and systems, develop new relationships and generate international business opportunities.

The ExCel venue in London’s docklands provides an ideal setting for demonstrations of vessels, including high speed craft for tackling security threats and unmanned surface vehicles.

DSEI is recognised by defence procurement agencies around the world as a milestone opportunity to evaluate the full spectrum of maritime defence and security products, technologies and equipment, from the latest warships and craft design to advanced new systems for surveillance, communication, weapons, sensors and navigation.

The Maritime Zone’s dedicated seminar theatre focuses on topics of current importance to the maritime community including maritime security, power projection including amphibious and carrier group forces capabilities, future naval ship design, the future role of OPVs and the latest developments in mine hunting.

Keynote speeches will be given by all four UK MOD Service Chiefs of Staff in the exhibition floor theatres. DSEI will also feature a strong international speaker line up.
In addition to the Service Chiefs DSEI will host around 300 seminar sessions and keynotes across seven theatres and four strategic conferences facilitating knowledge sharing and networking around key topics and technical areas.

DSEI's seminars will address the challenges, developments and future of the Defence & Security sector's ever-changing landscape providing a global platform for key government figures and influential policy makers within the sector. These include: Air, Naval, Land, Security, Special Forces, Unmanned and Global Partnerships.

DSEI 2013 was a great success with 32,169 visitors and 1,489 exhibitors. The maritime element at DSEI 2013 experienced a showcase of prime contractors and smaller technology providers located inside ExCeL with an impressive international flotilla on the adjoining docks. Visiting warships provided a valuable platform for the demonstrations of new systems and equipment from the innovative maritime sector.
