Why Sponsor

Position your brand ahead of your competitors and ensure you are seen by the most influential people across the defence sector by sponsoring DPRTE 2019.

The MOD’s ten year Equipment Plan, published in 2017, outlined the MOD’s intention to spend an incredible £178 billion over 10 years and, with government’s aspiration for 33% of all spend by value to be secured by SMEs by 2020, now is the time for organisations of all sizes to ensure they are sharing in this lucrative marketplace.

Since its launch in 2012, DPRTE has firmly established itself as the UK’s leading must-attend, single day defence procurement and supply event. Held in partnership with MOD and DE&S, DPRTE 2019 will provide suppliers with a unique opportunity to showcase products and services, in addition to being able to engage directly with key personnel and organisations responsible for setting strategy and delivering operationally for an annual budget of over £19 billion.

For existing and aspiring defence suppliers looking for business growth, DPRTE 2019 will bring over 1300 key decision makers together from MOD, Prime Contractors and the supply chain to examine the opportunities and challenges facing the modern-day UK Armed Forces.
