The Digital Experience

DPRTE Engage will connect the defence procurement and supply chain community through an innovative, intuitive, and interactive virtual experience.

For many of you, this may be a new experience so the key to DPRTE Engage is ensuring this is accessible and easy to navigate. Participants can easily browse valuable content, use chat tools to network with exhibitors and also choose and attend your preferred presentations and training sessions.

DPRTE Engage 2020 also allows you to join our event from any location via your desktop, mobile or other device, ensuring you can engage with us whilst on the move. And, on top of this, if you miss anything, you can catch up later via our on-demand option.

The Virtual Lobby

Once participants log in to the event they are taken to an interactive 3D lobby that functions as a launchpad guiding them to various sections of the event providing easy access to areas such as the Exhibition Halls, Keynote Arena, Knowledge Transfer and Networking Zones.

Exhibition Hall

With exhibitors, sponsors and partners located across the virtual exhibition landscape, delegates can easily navigate through the space just like a physical event. The DPRTE virtual exhibition stands work just like a regular event – staff can meet delegates, schedule meetings, chat through text, audio and live video calls, engage through social media and even, ‘take away’ literature from each stand.

Keynote Arena & Knowledge Transfer Zones

Take your seat ready to watch and participate within the DPRTE Engage Keynote sessions, which as always,  will feature a host of leading speakers from across the UK’s defence procurement and supply chain community.

Ask questions of the presenters and watch sessions at a later stage if you missed them using the on-demand facility.



Networking & Collaboration

Dedicated areas at DPRTE Engage will ensure you can communicate with key partners, sponsors, delegates and exhibitors via text, audio and video, ensuring you can maximise your event experience and directly engage with very people shaping the future defence procurement landscape.

Connect with attendees through rich interactive tools such as audio/video/text chat or join discussion threads in an immersive environment to get the conversation going.
