BAE Systems and DxC join the DPRTE 2018 line up

BAE Systems and DxC are the latest names confirmed to appear at Defence Procurement, Research, Technology & Exportability (DPRTE) 2018 taking place at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on 27 March.

DPRTE 2018 bring together buyers, suppliers and defence thought leaders in an engaging environment where they can network and discuss the latest market developments and opportunities.

The two companies will join a stellar list that already includes Rolls-Royce, Raytheon, QinetiQ, General Electric and Cammell Laird at the Prime Contractor Engagement Village at the UK’s premier defence procurement event.

The Prime Contractor Village provides the defence supply chain with an essential opportunity to connect with MOD Tier 1 contractors – acting as a stepping-stone onto the Ministry of Defence supply chain for smaller suppliers or those new to the defence marketplace.

Innovative sub-contracting was embraced in the Government’s National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) 2015, which encourages SME and non-traditional suppliers to sell to the UK defence marketplace.

To achieve this, the MOD has created a new network of Supply Chain Advocates who are signposting opportunities in the marketplace through transparency of supply chain competition; this ground-breaking programme can be used as a starting point for conversations in the Prime Contractor Engagement Village at DPRTE.

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.

Appointments will be on a first come, first served basis and will be allocated on arrival at the event at the entrance to the Prime Contractor Engagement Village.

To secure your appointment, first book your place at DPRTE 2018: www.dprte.co.uk/book-now.
