The Defence and Industry Conference has seen a steady growth in participation since the first such Conference was held in the 1990s.
The last Conference in 2011, the seventeenth Conference, was also held in Adelaide and attracted 630 companies and over 1700 attendees. Seventy-five per cent of delegates were from industry.
The Conference is an opportunity for Industry to discuss with Defence officials acquisition and sustainment investment opportunities. It is also an opportunity for Industry to present its ideas and concepts to the Defence community.
