We are again using a SCS17 App for this Event which is in development. There are opportunities for trade stands and content on the App. See the latest SCS17 flyer.
This annual one-day event, highly valued by both MOD and Industry, and organised through Team Defence Information , provides a first-hand opportunity to gain and share insights on this vital theme. Not innovating, maintaining the status quo, stultifies business and threatens operational effectiveness.
With thought-leader speakers, panel sessions, extensive trade stands and first-rate networking, SCS17 is a must-attend event. Use the day at SCS17 to take stock and benchmark the risks and rewards of practising innovation in Defence Support.
