Key organisations set for DPRTE 2019 Innovation Zone

Defence Procurement, Research, Technology & Exportability (DPRTE), the sector’s premier procurement event, will take place at Birmingham’s NEC on 28 March 2019.

With a hugely diverse set of requirements, across a vast array of goods and services, the Ministry of Defence is Britain’s industry’s largest customer, buying everything from office equipment to education services and all kinds of facilities management services as well as military equipment and supplies of all kinds.

The MOD is committed to delivering an invigorated, innovative and cost-effective global supply chain. DPRTE 2019 will provide buyers and suppliers of all sizes, engaged throughout the defence acquisition supply chain, with an invaluable opportunity to enhance knowledge, collaborate, share best practice and showcase innovation.

The event will host six Networking and Collaboration Zones, which will provide attendees a significant opportunity to meet and discuss buyer and supplier opportunities, share best practice, expand your knowledge and create new peer contacts.

One particular area the defence sector relies heavily on is technology and innovation to develop new solutions to meet the challenges it is facing; however, bringing a new product or service to the market can be daunting if you don’t know how.

The DPRTE Innovation Zone will provide attendees with the opportunity to meet with key organisations such as the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl); Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA); UK Defence Solutions Centre; SBRI / Innovate UK; techUK; and Cranfield University, who can help and advise on potential funding options and bringing products and services to the market within a science and technology programme worth over £400 million a year.
