Defence Industry Development Strategy Summit

Date: Tuesday 6 August 2024

Tuesday, 6 August 2024 • The Fullerton Hotel, Sydney • Registration begins: 8:30am AEST • Official start: 9:00am • Business casual

Released in late February, the Defence Industry Development Strategy (DIDS) is the Albanese government’s plan to streamline, simplify and accelerate the development of Australia’s defence industrial base.

This policy will provide immense change and opportunity for Australia’s defence industry as the government continues to deliver the findings of the 2023 Defence Strategic Review.

Join Defence Industry Minister Pat Conroy in person as he spearheads an exciting list of policymakers, thought leaders and industry insiders as they unpack the intricacies of the DIDS and what it will mean for your business.

The speakers will detail and respond to the government’s plans for the nation’s defence industry, delivering unique, critical insights into and analyses of the DIDS while addressing key issues in a series of engaging, targeted sessions.

Numbers for the summit will be limited and those hoping to secure a spot at the event will need to move quickly – a waitlist will be created on a first-come, first-served basis.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to engage directly with the policy and decision makers that will shape the defence industry business environment for decades to come.
