Secretary of State for Defence to speak at DSEI 2017

The Secretary of State for Defence, Sir Michael Fallon, has confirmed his attendance at Defence and Security Equipment International 2017 (DSEI).

He will deliver a keynote speech during the exhibition, which takes place from 12 - 15 September at ExCeL, London.

At a time of severe security risk, with a multifaceted terrorist threat posed from the digital battlefield to civilian streets, DSEI will provide a key platform for senior international military and political representatives to candidly discuss current threats and get an exclusive view of the latest equipment and services designed to tackle these threats. The event also provides opportunities to meet with international partners to develop strong diplomatic relationships.

The Secretary of State for Defence will be supported by other ministers from the Ministry of Defence including Harriett Baldwin MP, Minister for Defence Procurement, who is also lined up to attend and deliver a keynote address.

Parliamentary support for DSEI was reflected by the significant number of MPs from a range of parties that attended a briefing from the event’s organisers.

Addressing the reception, guest speaker Ms Baldwin said: “DSEI could not be more important in terms of the innovation that visitors to the exhibition will see, including some of the latest technologies and conceptual designs. It provides an opportunity to look ahead to future capability”.

DSEI 2017 is fully supported again by both international and UK military, with senior personnel, including the four UK MOD Service Chiefs, confirmed to speak throughout the four days of the show. A biennial highpoint for the global defence and security industry, DSEI 2017 will host some 1600 exhibitors and is expected to welcome over 34,000 visitors from 108 countries, including 250 international delegations.
