As part of the Land Forces 2018 expo, the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) and the Defence Innovation Hub (DIH) are inviting businesses to engage in conversations to see how the organisations can help support the growth of Australian businesses.

The CDIC and DIH will be co-located at the Adelaide Convention Centre, adjacent to three free meeting rooms.


DIH and CDIC said that they encourage Australian businesses of all sizes to talk to key representatives, who can help with advice on building your business in the defence industry and innovation within Defence. 

Presented in collaboration with the Australian Army, Land Forces 2018 is an international industry exposition to showcase equipment, technology and services for the armies of Australia and the Indo-Asia-Pacific.

  • Showcasing Australian industrial capability – a discussion with industry leaders: Members of the CDIC advisory board will lead a discussion on sector development, including a summary of CDIC progress in industry engagement, and where industry needs to be to meet the challenges of the Sovereign Industrial Capability Priorities.
  • Networking with global primes: Find out about the Global Supply Chain Program and meet representatives of six global primes at a special get together. Places are limited.
