Content Overview

DSEI 2021 Theme

In 2021, the main theme of DSEI is Integrated Response to Future Threats, with a focus on Multi Domain Integration. The recent publication of the UK Ministry of Defence's Integrated Review has placed renewed emphasis on the importance of efficient inter-force collaboration, and the resulting impact on current and required platforms.

The DSEI 2021 forums will explore what this means for future operational requirements, and how best to manage collaboration across the supply chain to deliver them.

View Agenda  Register to Attend 


DSEI 2021 is both a live event in London AND a virtual event. Whilst DSEI will be a live event in London, for those who cannot join us in person due to Covid restrictions, the DSEI Connect  virtual event platform will enable them to fully participate remotely. 

DSEI Connect provides all registered participants (whether attending in person or virtually) access to live-streamed and on-demand content as well as the ability to identify and arrange virtual or in person meetings with potential business partners, bringing DSEI to you wherever you are.

All the forum discussions at DSEI 2021 have been developed in partnership with UK MoD Working Groups, to ensure the topics are relevant, timely and productive.
