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.
