Private Sector

Over the next decade the Ministry of Defence is committed to spending over £186 billion on equipment and support. Defence has a major role to play in delivering the Government’s growth and enterprise agenda – the MOD accounts for over 40% of all central government spend with industry and its procurement activity includes some of the most complex and technologically advanced projects in the world.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of the UK economy, fuelling economic growth and providing more than 15 million jobs. At the MOD, SMEs also play a vital role in helping to deliver efficient, effective and affordable equipment, services and support for the Armed Forces.

DPRTE 2025 is a unique opportunity for suppliers to engage with defence acquisition and supply chain.

SMEs play a vital role in helping to deliver efficient, effective, and affordable public services, and becoming a government supplier is a great way to make a positive difference to your business. Such companies report an increase in their turnover, higher profits, and an expansion of their workforce.

DPRTE is a unique opportunity for suppliers to engage with the defence sector buying community with over 3000 attendees across both days, including representatives from the major buying organisations across the defence sector. This is the one event you cannot afford to miss.  

In addition to delegate access, ensure that your organisation takes full advantage of the event sponsorship and exhibition opportunities available, designed specifically to showcase your products and services directly to this high-value and diverse marketplace.
