Defence Attaché Engagement – June 2024

Attend this upcoming Defence Attaché industry engagement event for the chance to meet one-to-one with UK defence staff before they take up their posts at UK Embassies and High Commissions abroad.

Following some adjustments to the UKDSE briefing package for outgoing UK defence staff, ADS and Make UK Defence have agreed an enhanced opportunity within this for industry engagement and participation.  

Benefits of Attending:

Industry attendees will have the opportunity to have one-to-one scheduled meetings with the outgoing defence staff in those countries of potential interest, and it is hoped that, where possible, the relevant country desk officers and military support staff from UKDSE will also be in attendance. Regional International Trade Advisors have also been invited to attend the event.
