This event will be open to all LAND FORCES trade visitors, exhibitors and conference delegates.
Registration will open at a later date.
Meeting Room M3, Mezzanine Level, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre


LAND FORCES will be a platform for engagement between Defence agencies responsible for acquiring the Australian Army’s new capability and the industry that will deliver the technologies, products and support. With the Australian Army involved in the largest single acquisition cycle in its history, LAND FORCES will provide a timely engagement platform between Army and industry, and between all levels of industry from prime contractor to micro-SME.


The Australian Defence Industry continues to adapt and grow, enjoying close collaboration with Defence and other government agencies, and productive ties with the international defence community. New skills and technologies continue to emerge and flow through Australian industry as a result of these experiences, leading to export growth and sustainable indigenous capability.

This one day conference examines the experiences of several Australian companies in the frontline of defence capability, culminating in a panel session that explores the future of Australia’s sovereign defence manufacturing capability.
