2018 NZDIA Forum
2018 NZDIA Forum
Date: October 2018 - Thursday 1 November 2018
Location: Central Energy Trust Arena, Palmerstone North ,

The 2018 NZDIA Forum is our 21st forum. We aim to bring together industry (local, regional and international) and a wider range of government interests than has been achieved previously. The NZDIA forum has, for 20 years, been the most important event on NZ soil for defence and industry to come together. This year we are creating the opportunity and space for a wider cross-section of the industry: local, Australasian and global with a broader interest in national security encompassing defence, to come together.  The speaking and workshop programme is coming together as we identify how best to deliver excellent value to our traditional constituency and new attendees.  There will be something for everyone in the programme, in the exhibition space and in the networking breaks.

Date: Wednesday 12 - Friday 14 June 2019
