Naval Zone

Naval ZoneThe close proximity of the Royal Victoria Dock enables DSEI to display a range of vessels, from warships to high speed craft. It also includes an expanded marina and in-depth scenarios to showcase related products, technologies and services.

The Naval Zone at DSEI 2017 gives exhibitors the opportunity to engage with established and emerging markets seeking new suppliers for their maritime defence and security requirements.

Admiral Sir Philip Jones"DSEI 2015 was the ideal occasion for the Royal Navy to demonstrate its ambition to lead and win through technological innovation. The opportunity to meet with so many partners from academia, industry and overseas at DSEI is, as always, a really useful component of our engagement with the vital partners through whom we seek to deliver this innovation."
