Defence Secretary Michael Fallon MP is attending Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) and delivering a keynote speech during the exhibition, at ExCeL, London Docklands, September 15 to 18.
As at previous shows, DSEI will provide a platform for international military and political representatives to discuss threats and get a view of the defence and security sectors’ latest equipment and services. Other ministers from the Ministry of Defence there will include Philip Dunne, Minister of State for Defence Procurement, who is also to deliver an address. Philip Dunne said: “The last DSEI in 2013 provided an impressive global platform for a huge range of British defence and security firms to showcase and promote their products, technologies and services. DSEI 2015 will provide a similar substantial forum, it is against a darker landscape that leaders of defence will once again come together. Different threats have emerged, with our collective security now facing new challenges. We find ourselves in a defining year for UK defence, with our five year Strategic Defence and Security Review in mid-stream. Times like these highlight the importance of partnerships with our allies, so DSEI provides a good opportunity for us to showcase our latest equipment, meet international partners and enhance our already strong relationships.”
DSEI 2015 will also have support from the UK and international military, with senior personnel, including the four UK MOD service chiefs, confirmed to speak over the four days of the show. A biennial exhibition for the global defence and security industry, DSEI 2015 will host more than 1500 exhibitors and is expected to welcome over 32,000 visitors from around 120 countries, including 100 international delegations.
