Meet, Greet, Engage and Explore: QinetiQ’s hopes for DPRTE 2018

Held across a single day, DPRTE 2018 takes place less than a week away at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on 27 March and offers a unique opportunity to showcase goods and services, as well as the chance to engage directly with both the key personnel and organisations responsible for setting strategy and operationally delivering an annual budget of over £19 billion.

As we count down to DPRTE 2018, Defence Online’s Matt Brown caught up with Tom O’Byrne, Procurement Campaign Lead at QinetiQ to preview his hopes for the event.


What sets DPRTE apart from other events in the defence calendar?

You will be hard pressed to find an event that is such highly represented by Small to Medium Enterprises and the UK MoD, mix this with wider industry and you have a great event.

What opportunities do events like DPRTE afford the defence community?

DPRTE gives QinetiQ the opportunity to engage with current and future supply chain partners, share best practice within the knowledge transfer areas and find the unexpected.

What are you most looking forward to during DPRTE 2018?

DPRTE always brings something new; whether a new opportunity, a new supplier or a new idea and therefore I am really looking forward to engaging with other organisations both through “Meet the Buyer” but also visiting as many Exhibitors as possible to understand their capability and share QinetiQ’s story.

What does QinetiQ have on the agenda this year? 

This year QinetiQ will be represented at the “Meet the Buyer” event and will also be presenting in the Supply Chain & Partnering Knowledge Transfer Zone.

What are QinetiQ’s hopes for the event?

QinetiQ hopes can be summed up in four words; Meet, Greet, Engage and Explore.

Finally, where can attendees find QinetiQ at DPRTE and what can they expect?

You can find QinetiQ at the “Meet the Buyer” – so make sure you register for a slot!
