DSEI Media Registrations

10 Apr 2017 by: DSEI

Media registration is open for the biennial Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEI).  The World Leading Defence & Security Event promises to be the most comprehensive DSEI to date, with innovations and demonstrations from the global defence and security sector. DSEI returns on 12 – 15 September at ExCeL, London.

Media will have access to more than 1,600 exhibiting companies across the five Zones of Air, Land, Naval, Security and Joint when the exhibition opens on 12 September. Companies comprising international prime contractors, systems integrators, service providers and small & medium enterprises will be opening their stands to media for briefings, announcements and one-to-one interviews throughout the week.

The DSEI Strategic Conferences and Seminar Programme will provide media with the opportunity to hear from senior figures from industry, government, military and academia in over 300 speaker-led discussions on topical issues in defence, security and medical capabilities. Media will also be alerted to all key speeches and VIP delegation visits by militaries and governments attending from around the world.

Throughout DSEI the press will be able to experience a full capability showcase including waterborne demonstrations, military medical innovations, technology exhibits and static displays from across the domains.

Reserved for the media is a two-storey, fully-equipped media centre which will be open throughout the week for all registered journalists. For those wishing to complete video-editing or stories, a quiet room within the media centre will also be available.

Media are advised to apply for a pass as soon as possible to ensure they receive the latest updates on exhibitors, live demonstrations, the DSEI conference and seminar programme, and any other events occurring during the DSEI week.

  • “DSEI is a landmark event presenting to the world the excellence of the UK defence and security businesses. We expect to welcome high level international delegations to take part in meetings with our strategic partners. For us in government it is hugely important, an important showcase, a stage for diplomacy, a platform for the international engagement. We are really looking forward to DSEI in September 2017.”
    Harriett Baldwin MP, Minister for Defence Procurement

  • "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."

  • "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. Without DSEI I fear this sort of interaction, information exchange and knowledge of developments across all domains would be lost. DSEI is an invaluable international biannual event .”
    Rt Hon Dr Julian Lewis MP, Chairman, House of Commons Defence Select Committee
    UK Parliament
  • “DSEI is a fantastic showcase for defence companies where international buyers, sellers, developers, thinkers, educators and the trainers can all get together. The UK defence industry is looking to recruit more engineers, scientists and developers into 200,000 jobs and up to 10,000 apprentices within UK defence companies. DSEI is an excellent tool to highlight the challenges the industry face as well as showcase its capabilities domestically and overseas.”
    James Gray MP, House of Commons Defence Committee
