Defence Information 24

10/Jul/2024 @ 8:00 am - 11/Jul/2024 @ 3:00 pm

Team Defence ‘Strengthening the New Alliance’

Defence Information 24 is a hybrid conference, with attendance in person and online. The programme is building!

Last year, during the Defence Information (DI23) event, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and industry leaders converged to discuss topics of mutual interest related to secure information sharing. The event drew approximately 500 participants over two days. This year’s theme, ‘Strengthening the New Alliance,’ will be explored through formal presentations, engaging panel sessions, and valuable networking opportunities. Attendees will also have the chance to visit vendor market stalls.

Defence Digital is also focusing on the next evolution of the Digital Strategy for Defence at DI24. At the event, there will be a designated area where you can come and discuss what you think should be in the next evolution of the strategy. Additionally, on Day 2, a workshop will provide another opportunity for you to share your insights and perspectives. Participating in these activities presents a fantastic chance to actively contribute to shaping the strategy.

If you are interested in hearing about how MOD and Industry see the future of Digital in Defence,  progress on delivering the Digital Backbone, and how the front line is exploiting Digital solutions, DI24 will be of interest to you.
