DSEI 2021 to Run as a Live Event

Thursday, May 27th, 2021

The biennial defence and security event, DSEI, will proceed as planned in September 2021 with a new digital offering running alongside the much-anticipated live exhibition.

Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) has confirmed it will take place as originally scheduled from 14-17 September at ExCeL London. The decision to proceed follows close consultation and discussion with the UK Government and industry stakeholders.

After a lengthy global shutdown of the exhibition sector during the COVID-19 pandemic, feedback from across the defence and security industry has shown a strong appetite to come back together in person at DSEI – an event that provides a critical and unmissable forum for many thousands of companies. A range of new online opportunities to complement the live event will be introduced. ‘DSEI Connect’ is a digital platform that will bring participants from around the world together with those attending the event in London to create a flexible and accessible “hybrid” format.

The new digital offering gives registered participants a secure and regulated platform to build relationships, share knowledge and develop business. DSEI’s connection portal, MeetMe, enables users to view recommended contacts through its supply chain listings, identify networking opportunities and arrange secure online or in-person meetings at the event.

DSEI Connect will feature an exclusive series of live and on-demand presentations from eminent international guests, including keynote speeches from military figureheads outlining pressing equipment requirements and opportunities, in addition to podcasts and exclusive interviews with senior government officials discussing key policies and strategies.

DSEI Event Director, Grant Burgham explains:

“The DSEI team has been in constant communication with our customers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the decision to run a live event reflects their feedback. We’ve taken into account the increasing confidence in the improving public health situation and we’ll continue to work closely with our partners to ensure we deliver a safe and valuable event for our customers.”

“DSEI has been shown to accelerate the trajectory of businesses that attend. The last year has encouraged us to think more imaginatively about our long-term offering to the defence and security sector and analyse what makes DSEI so important for the industry. As such DSEI will now provide a wider range of opportunities for those who don’t normally – or this time cannot – attend in-person, and we are pleased to take this opportunity to introduce DSEI Connect to the market”.

More details about DSEI Connect will follow throughout the weeks leading up to the event. DSEI visitor registration will open on 7 June.

Counter Terror Expo (CTX) Joins DSEI at ExCeL London in September 2021

Counter Terror Expo (CTX) joins DSEI at ExCeL London in September 2021
Clarion Events Defence and Security is pleased to announce that Counter Terror Expo (CTX) and Forensics Expo Europe (FEE) will take place alongside DSEI at ExCeL London on 14 – 16th September 2021.

DSEI is on track to deliver the event’s most comprehensive iteration to date, with both returning key accounts and first-time exhibitor numbers reflecting the industry’s commitment to a return to live events. As the UK’s leading networking event for security professionals from industry, infrastructure, government and policing, CTX attracts attendees and exhibitors from across Europe, all of whom will have the opportunity to seek counter-terror business synergies with a wider pool of stakeholders attending DSEI across the Land, Naval, Aerospace, Joint, and Security domains.

“We are pleased to report that we are on target to deliver a strong DSEI in 2021, both in terms of new exhibitor bookings and organic growth of stand size,” Grant Burgham, DSEI Event Director, said. “Thanks to careful management of the floorplan yield we can run CTX and FEE alongside DSEI and offer attendees and stakeholders a week of business opportunities that will prove to be worth the wait after a tumultuous 18 months for our industry.”

“As a strategic counter-terror event with a global audience, large numbers of the CTX audience typically travel to the event from overseas,” Tracy Bebbington, Event Director, CTX , said. “We have decided that there is a strong cross-over audience between CTX and DSEI attendees that we could leverage to deliver two events side-by-side in 2021 and enable our attendees to take advantage of the business opportunities this will offer.”

Clarion Events, one of the largest exhibition organisers in the world, hold the safety and well-being of all event attendees as the highest priority. DSEI aims to deliver an event as similar to those in previous years as possible and will fully implement all public health requirements, in order to make the venue Covid-secure. Working alongside Government, public health officials, the venue, business partners, transport operators and hotels, DSEI 2021 will take all the necessary precautions.

DSEI 2021: UK Ministry of Defence to focus on the Integrated Response to Future Threats

Monday, October 5th, 2020

DSEI 2021 will put integration in the spotlight as the UK Ministry of Defence and the British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and UK Strategic Command work to develop and maintain organic integration at all levels and across all domains.

As British forces modernise to meet the demands of the information age, they do so with the understanding that success on the future battlefield requires integration across land, sea, air, cyber and space. Under the theme of ‘Integrated Response to Future Threats’ DSEI 2021 will be shaped to support this strategic shift with input from industry, academia, international partners and delegates.

With the newly formed Strategic Command leading ambitious plans to deliver a step-change in the way British commands interoperate, UK Defence is driving integration efforts to mesh the way individual armed services operate in the battlespace. Winning the fight no longer depends on success in the air, land or sea; it requires a force that is integrated by design and instinct, that uses defence resources efficiently across multiple domains at an optimum pace to stay ahead of threats and adversaries.

On the industry side, this will require an accelerated pace of change to deliver a competitive advantage. It will see increased demand for the disruptive application of technologies such as artificial intelligence and big data in the cyber domain, increased focus on defeating adversaries in the ‘grey zone’ through special operations, and support for improved decision making aided by data analytics and information technologies. 

The focus on integration has been highlighted by the immense global impact of COVID-19 , and the enforced understanding that robust national resilience relies on more than fire power. With our adversaries increasingly posing non-military threats, greater instinctive integration is required at all levels of the defence community to ensure the UK remains ahead of the challenges that lie ahead.

DSEI 2021 will offer a forum for Defence UK to meet with its industry partners to strengthen relationships, share knowledge, and discuss the technological innovations that will support the British forces in these efforts as they look toward 2030 and beyond, powering progress and defining the future of defence.

Minister for Defence Procurement, Jeremy Quin MP, commented: “Once again, DSEI is showcasing the best of British defence technology and innovation on a world stage. Bringing together strategic partners, international governments and pioneering defence companies this show offers a unique opportunity to collaborate, partner and cooperate to further our collective global defence and security agenda.”

“DSEI 2021 falls during a time of great change for the British forces as they implement their heightened integration doctrine, both internally and externally with the wider UK defence landscape,” Grant Burgham, DSEI Event Director, Clarion Defence & Security, commented. “DSEI offers the single best opportunity to foster that integration between Defence UK and industry partners. Our exhibitors are keen to meet with all branches of the British Commands and show their capabilities in support of ‘Integrated Response to Future Threats’ at DSEI 2021.”
