The calendar of the global defence sector now has a new highlight - DSEI 2021, 14 - 17 September.

Each of the five domain-focused zones at DSEI London - Aerospace, Land, Naval, Security and Joint - will represent a strong platform with its own display categories and well structured seminar programme. For instance, by visiting the trade fair's largest zone, Land, during DSEI 2021 you will find innovations in approximately 150 product categories like Artillery, Facilities security, Intelligence gathering, Logistics support, Unmanned ground vehicles and many more. Other points of interest within the Land zone will be the traditional Land Seminar and Land Capability Conference.
