Grant Burgham, DSEI Event Director said: “DSEI 2019 will not only be the biggest edition to date – with more exhibiting companies from outside ‘traditional’ defence and new international pavilions – but the most comprehensive. There will be even more to see and do, with debut features, content and demos.”
