NDI Conference and Dinner 2018: Manufacturing for Modern Defence

An unmissable event for the defence and security sector, the NDI Annual Conference 2018 will bring together 250 senior leaders and key policy makers from business and government for unparalleled analysis, inspiration and debate, followed by a black-tie dinner to honour the Royal Air Force centenary.

Conference by day

As government promises to modernise defence and security, and with the productivity agenda at the heart of its thinking, this one-day conference will be packed with chances to reflect on industry challenges and opportunities, celebrate growth, and prepare for the year ahead. We need you to be part of that conversation…
