The DPRTE Keynote Arena is one of the focal points within the event, providing all visitors with a rare opportunity to hear from leading personnel from organisations such as the Ministry of Defence, academia and the wider industry network.
High-profile speakers will present on a range of topical and critical subjects that are defining the future of defence procurement, in addition to delivering against today’s current marketplace initiatives and objectives.
The DPRTE 2021 Keynote Arena sessions will be streamed live online as part of our hybrid event package, meaning you can watch the main sessions from the comfort of your home or office environment.
