DSEI 2015 - USA PAVILION - a platform for US businesses in the defence and



The USA Pavilion for DSEI 2015 is on pace to be the biggest one yet; already larger than the last two editions, more companies are expected to sign up over the next few weeks. With new initiatives for the event as a whole and a focus on delivering a stronger experience to the exhibitors, the pavilion has received support from industry, government and association/media partners.

New exhibitors to the pavilion, including Leidos, Bell Helicopter/Textron, 707 Tactical Gear, Flame Enterprises, and Aeronix, will join companies such as Harris, Datron, Caterpillar, Polaris Defense, Sekai and Ultralife. Susan Lyme, Regional Managing Director for Europe at Harris Corporation says, “Harris highly values DSEI, and frequently takes advantage of this show to launch new products and showcase emerging technologies to our valued global customers.”

The Navy League of the United States are the lead supporting association and several media partners such as Forecast International, Small Arms Defense Journal and Defense News will also be present.

The Global Partnerships Theatre, located next to the pavilion, will host senior US Government speakers discussing upcoming programmes and opportunities, as well as being the centerpiece for presentations on regional procurement opportunities in new and established markets such as South America, Asia, Middle East and Europe.

Held in London, UK, DSEI 2015 is the ideal platform to display your full capabilities to a global audience of 32,000 attendees from 121 countries. More and more, companies are realizing that they must increase their international business in order to recoup revenue due to the US Government’s budget cuts.

Marion Blakey, president and CEO, AIA commented on the business development needs of USA suppliers and manufactures: "International sales form the backbone of interoperability with our friends and allies, as well as helping to keep pricing and costs down and manufacturing lines open. In a constrained domestic budget environment, our member companies increasingly are turning to the international market." (Defense News, 19 July 2014)

The USA Pavilion at DSEI 2015 will give your company the opportunity to access international export opportunities in traditional and emerging geo markets.

“The partnership between Clarion Events and the U.S. Commercial Service proved to be a great success at DSEI 2013. U.S. Commercial Service Defense and Security Specialists were able to provide one-on-one counseling to U.S. exhibitors who were looking to expand their market share and increase their global exports. The Specialists were also able to provide market research and make introductions to key business contacts. Looking forward to DSEI 2015, the partnership between Clarion Events and the U.S. Commercial Service will expand. This year we will be centering our efforts on facilitating pre-scheduled business-to-business meetings between U.S. exhibitors and defense officials, other exhibitors and show visitors. We will also be increasing our export education at this year’s Show by holding a series of industry-led briefings on how best to engage within the prime contractor supply chain. This year’s DSEI is shaping up to be the best yet, and if you are in the defense & security business, it is an event that you do not want to miss.”  PJ Menner, U.S. Department of Commerce

  • ‘Recent events have highlighted the need for an integrated and persistent security response across a wide spectrum of operations.  The British Army is reconfiguring to meet the challenges of the contemporary security environment.  An important part of this adjustment is establishing a close relationship with its industrial partners, seeking out innovative and relevant solutions as part of the DGP and exploiting mutually beneficial agendas to defeat those who threaten our security.’ Lt Gen Mark Poffley OBE, Commander Force Development and Capability, British Army

  • “DSEI 2015 enables us to highlight themes that will influence future UK air capability, and we will continue to pursue the excellent opportunity that DSEI 2015 provides to engage in high-level industry briefings and bilaterals.” Air Vice-Marshal Malcolm Brecht, Chief of Staff Air Capability

  • ”The Joint Helicopter Command is very much looking forward to attending DSEI 15 and the Rotorcraft Strategic Conference.  The event comes at a time when the Command is adjusting to face contemporary challenges after more than a decade of hard campaigning. The JHC’s Future Capability Strategy, which provides a roadmap for the development of Air Manoeuvre capability over the next three decades, will soon be implemented and DSEI provides a great opportunity to discuss emerging opportunities with our industrial partners." Air Cdre R D Mason OBE MA RAF

  • “Harris views DSEI as one of the premier defence exhibitions in the world, providing us a great opportunity to meet with European and other international customers, dealers and industrial partners in one location.  Our participation in the U.S. Pavilion has never failed to attract high levels of attention from senior representatives of government and user organizations.  Consequently, Harris highly values DSEI, and frequently takes advantage of this show to launch new products and showcase emerging technologies to our valued global customers.” Susan Lyne, Harris Corporation, Regional Managing Director, Europe
