Defence innovation set to dominate this year’s DPRTE event

Friday November 8th, 2013

With Ministry of Defence procurement plans currently dominating headlines within the UK media, this month’s Defence Procurement Research, Technology & Exportability (DPRTE) exhibition, which takes place in Bristol on 20 November, could not be more appropriately timed.

DPRTE returns to the UWE Bristol Exhibition and Conference Centre, where the inaugural event in 2012 proved an immediate success. Partnered by MOD Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), DPRTE 2013 brings together all elements of the defence supply chain in a unique environment focused on collaboration and engagement.

Hosted by BiP Solutions – one of Europe’s leading providers of procurement solutions – DPRTE 2013 provides an unrivalled opportunity for buyers and suppliers to experience the latest innovative technologies and discover first-hand the factors shaping defence procurement for the future.

DPRTE 2013 will provide delegates with four Knowledge Transfer Zones, a Buyer Engagement Village and a Keynote Arena, where delegates can hear from influencers and key figures within the defence industry including Steven Morgan, Director Commercial Operations at MOD DE&S; Richard Blake, Deputy Head Commercial at Dstl; and Paul Everitt, Chief Executive, ADS and Chairman, Farnborough International Ltd.

DPRTE’s inaugural event in November 2012 quickly sold out. DPRTE 2013 promises to be similarly successful.

Grahame Steed, Managing Editor of DPRTE’s Media Partner MOD Defence Contracts Bulletin (MOD DCB), and Chair for the Keynote Arena, said:  “With so many developments within the UK defence industry, DPRTE 2013 is the perfect opportunity for all involved to meet and see where we are heading. DPRTE’s unique focus on defence procurement, research, technology and exportability means it covers all of the bases; so it really is a must-attend event for buyers and suppliers.”
