Don't Just Take Our Word for It

"For us, DSEI is our number one global exhibition. As well as being the premier UK defence event, DSEI also attracts an impressive array of visitors and delegations from across the globe making it a high value, focused marketing opportunity". Supacat

"Its an extremely important show for us as a company, we see over the week of the show more customers than you could see traveling around the world in one month, so it really is an important show for us and we will definitely be back." BAE Systems

"After a very successful DSEI 2015, SubSea Craft's first, early booking for DSEI 2017 has meant that we have been able to increase our stand size over that of 2015. SubSea Craft sees the increase in stand size as vital to being better able to showcase the capabilities of its Diver Delivery Unit (DDU) and be able to cater for, and enhance the experience of, the anticipated large number of delegations and visitors to its stand" SubSea Craft
