3CDSE 2018 is unique amongst other defence and security expos, in that it offers business to business networking with key decision-makers. It includes a day-long programme of expert speakers and workshops and a major exhibition. Following on from the success of the first Herefordshire showcase for the defence and security industries, the Expo has substantially grown. 3CDSE still maintains its original premise to provide a forum for military, suppliers and security agencies to identify common interests, solutions and opportunities.

3CDSE brings together senior military leading forces development and procurement, senior police engaged in the fight against cybercrime, the intelligence and security agencies, and the industry innovators who supply them, to identify future strategies and needs. Unlike many larger and established events, this is an opportunity to engage with those at the cutting edge of the defence technology coalface and real decision makers in the industry. 3CDSE is the “go to” event for primes and SMEs alike, recognising the growing need for agility in this sophisticated supply chain and streamlined, efficient and cost effective R and D and procurement It is a closed “industry only” event geared to genuine commercial activity and growth.
