Defence sector spending is valued at over £19 billion annually, making the Ministry of Defence (MOD) Britain’s industry’s largest customer, buying everything from military fighting vehicles to education services and all kinds of facilities management services.

The Defence Procurement, Research, Technology & Exportability (DPRTE) 2018 exhibition will offer businesses a chance to capitalise on the UK government’s target that 25% of defence procurement spending goes to Small to Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs).

The MOD recognises the importance of SMEs to the defence supply chain, as they are able to bring flexibility, boost innovation and increase competition, all of which means industry can deliver the best value for money capability to the Armed Forces.

The exhibition takes place on 27 March 2018 at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena.
