  • "DSEI is a highlight within the defence calendar, I use it to find out what the most recent developments are in every technological area affecting for defence.

  • “DSEI is a fantastic showcase for defence companies where international buyers, sellers, developers, thinkers, educators and the trainers can all get together.

DSEI is an excellent tool to highlight the challenges the industry face as well as showcase its capabilities domestically and overseas.”
