About the Event

The world leading Disruptive Technology for Defence Transformation Conference, taking place 24th – 26th September 2019 in London, UK will examine how the application of Digital Age technology transforms the delivery of ‘full spectrum effects’: aligning new military hard power with the whole range of soft power including cyber and social media; moving on to establish how acquisition structures and processes can (and must) be adapted to ensure that we are able to keep pace with industry’s progression.

Last year’s conference welcomed the UK Vice Chief of Defence Staff, Commander Joint Forces Command and many very senior national military and NATO leaders – this year will bring together 200-250 senior military leaders, government officials, tech and defence industry, research, War and Staff colleges and academia.
