DSEI 2023 awaits

The Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition is one of the most significant events for the defence community. DSEI 2023 will be held on 12 - 15 September in ExCeL London. The previous edition took place amid the COVID-19 pandemic and thus introduced the DSEI Connect digital platform to give participants the chance to join remotely, plan meetings and access on-demand content. The virtual aspect of the exhibition enriched the DSEI experience and the platform will probably play an important part in 2023 as well.

DSEI 2023 will be divided into thematic zones and hubs. The Aerospace Zone will bring together system manufacturers, air force delegations, OEMs, SMEs and government officials. The Aerospace Forum and the recently established Space Hub will be among the zone's highlights. DSEI's Land Zone will showcase innovative ammunitions, weapons, vehicles and equipment, and will include the Land Forum. The Naval Zone will be dedicated to maritime tech, ship yards and vessels and will feature the Naval Forum.

The Security Zone at DSEI 2023 and the Cyber Security Forum within its frame will focus on technological advancements and strategies to counter threats like terrorism and hybrid warfare. The Joint Zone will present innovations by international companies within various sectors, such as big data and information, electronic warfare, medical, robotics, etc. The Joint Forum will encourage debates on current issues, while the Medical Hub will demonstrate new defence medical technologies and research findings.
