Australia’s top defence companies will have the opportunity to collaborate on opportunities at the Hunter Class and Global Access Program event in Adelaide, hosted by BAE Systems.

The two-day event (December 3-4) will bring together 100 Australian businesses and 30 original equipment manufacturers to give them the opportunity to pitch ideas to supplier representatives from the UK, US, Germany, France and Denmark.

This can open the door for collaboration between companies in the future.

"Under the Hunter Class frigate program we will deliver nine of the world’s most advanced anti-submarine warships to the Royal Australian Navy, providing a generational opportunity for the Australian shipbuilding industry," BAE Systems Australia Hunter Class frigate program managing director Nigel Stewart said.

"Industry engagement plays an essential role in Defence capability, which is why this two-day networking event is a fantastic opportunity for Australian businesses to engage with our global suppliers, who are already doing great things with us on the program."

BAE Systems were named the preferred contractor for the $35 billion Hunter class frigate program earlier this year.

"The Hunter program is making significant progress and we are proud of the strong collaborative relationships already formed with Defence, the Navy and our industry partners," Stewart said.

"This event, which will be attended by more than 300 people, is the next step to ensuring we deliver world-class capability to the Royal Australian Navy and build strong sovereign capability for decades to come."

Nearly 700 Australian companies have pre-qualified to work on the Hunter Class frigate program.
