General Dynamics and MBDA latest names to confirm for DPRTE 2018

Yet more big names have been confirmed to appear at Defence Procurement, Research, Technology & Exportability (DPRTE) 2018 taking place at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on 27 March.

General Dynamics and MBDA will take their place at the Prime Contractor Engagement Village alongside other leading companies such as BAE Systems, DxC, Rolls-Royce, Raytheon, QinetiQ, General Electric and Cammell Laird.

DPRTE 2018 is the UK’s premier defence procurement event and brings together buyers, suppliers and defence thought leaders in an engaging environment where they can network and discuss the latest market developments and opportunities.

Attendees will have access to the DPRTE Product Showcase Exhibition (featuring over 125 suppliers), Live Keynote Arena, four Knowledge Transfer Zones and five Networking and Collaboration Zones.

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.

The Ministry of Defence 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.
