Exhibit in the Future Tech Hub

Exhibit in the Future Tech Hub


DSEI’s Future Tech Hub is our largest and fastest-growing area of the show, having tripled in size since the 2021 show. The Future Tech Hub supports exhibitors looking to break into the defence sector, and continues to strengthen their relationship within industry with the presence of MoD stakeholders exhibiting; Including UK Strategic Command, DASA, Dstl, Defence & Equipment & Support.

The Future Tech Hub showcases exhibiting companies and organisations not seen at any other shows. Through the presence of the Keynote theatre where the UK Minister of Defence Procurement and other high-level speakers talk, exhibitors will benefit from increased footfall throughout the Hub. There is also a dedicated Cyber Security Theatre where exhibitors can showcase their products and innovation through sponsored panels throughout the show.

  • “This was our first time exhibiting at DSEI and it’s been a very useful place to meet with our current customers and suppliers. It’s been a well organised event and it’s been very efficient to see so many people in a short period of time. It was good to be part of the aerospace cluster at DSEI, and we hope the Aerospace Zone will grow in the future.”
