Airbus and QinetiQ confirmed as prime contractor partners for DPRTE 2020

Airbus and QinetiQ have been confirmed to appear at Defence Procurement, Research, Technology & Exportability (DPRTE) 2020 taking place at Farnborough International Exhibition Centre on 1 April.

Airbus and QinetiQ will take their place at the Prime Contractor and Supply Chain Pavilion as the event confirmed them as prime contractor partners.

As outlined within the National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015, the MOD is committed to enabling SMEs and non-traditional suppliers to bid for defence and security contracts more easily. One important element of efforts to achieve this is the MOD working with its Prime Contractors to maximise opportunities for the marketplace through transparency of supply chain competition.

The Supply Chain Engagement Pavilion will bring together many of the key Prime Contractors currently engaged within the delivery of MOD projects, allowing visitors to book appointments for 1-2-1 meetings. Delegates can also visit the Supply Chain Knowledge Transfer Zone, which will see some of the Prime Contractors deliver sessions on supply chain opportunities available as part of current/future projects.

Don’t miss out on your chance to meet directly with many of the key Prime Contractors currently engaged within the delivery of MOD projects and gain an insight into potential future sub-contract opportunities.

Do not miss out on this unique opportunity to hear from a range of the most important speakers within defence procurement today.
