NSW Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres has called on defence industry suppliers to register their interest in showcasing their products on the NSW government stand at this year’s Land Forces.
Minister Ayres encouraged all NSW-based defence industry suppliers to apply.
"Land Forces is a fantastic opportunity to showcase products and services to an Australian and international audience. Exhibiting on the NSW Defence stand is a way for small to medium enterprises to ensure their work is seen by both domestic and global defence supply chains," Minister Ayres said.
Land Forces, which is held every two years, will be the major defence industry exhibition in Australia this year. It will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 1-3 September.
The last Land Forces was held in Adelaide in 2018 and attracted 624 exhibitor companies from 26 countries and more than 15,000 visitors.
The biennial Land Forces exposition is a powerful forum for key decision-makers, enabling government representatives, defence officials, military procurement managers and senior army officers to network with defence materiel manufacturers, equipment suppliers and service providers.
The Defence NSW stand will give businesses a prime location to showcase their products and services, and connect with domestic and international customers. Other benefits include:
- Ongoing support for accessing new markets and developing businesses;
- On-stand support during the exhibition; and
- Inclusion in the department’s marketing material.
It was attended by 74 defence, trade and industry delegations from 36 countries, including 19 Australian military delegations and 31 foreign military delegations.
Land Forces 2020 will provide delegates, exhibitors, participants and visitors alike with a unique opportunity to meet with their peers, potential suppliers and customers.
It will highlight the platforms, equipment, services and technologies that are increasingly in demand by the armies of the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
Land Forces 2020 will be a showcase for defence materiel manufacturers, systems integrators, and maintenance and logistics specialists operating across the full spectrum of land warfare.
Expressions of interest in exhibiting on the NSW Defence stand close on 4 March 2020. Further information is available here.
