  • Day 1: Information, Cyber & Information Enablers
  • Day 2: Support, Services & Support Information

Jointly presented by Team Defence Information, MOD & Cranfield University in Swindon, Wiltshire | May count towards Continual Professional Development (CPD) for MOD staff

Defence Information (DI) is the major annual communications event for the Joint Information Group (JIG) that reports to the Defence Suppliers Forum. At DI’18 we anticipate that a new MOD CIO will be in post and trust that our jointly-planned MOD/Industry Event will provide a timely communications opportunity, capitalising on a 2-day programme with excellent opportunities to network and learn at this informative and productive ‘Team Defence’ engagement.

Take action & be part of DI’18

With around 350 professionals and Whole Force representation, the Event has strong engagement from leaders and practitioners in both Industry and MOD. Whilst ‘Information’ is the common thread, Day 1 will focus on Information, Cyber & Information Enablers; Day 2 on Support, Services & Support Information.

DI’18 facilitates sharing of collective wisdom on current Team Defence thinking. Participants benefit from the active participation of defence seniors and thought leaders, innovators and suppliers, practitioners and subject matter experts, academics and those with ‘other sector’ know-how.

The stimulating format of DI’18 includes a range of Keynote Speakers, Interactive Workshops, the TD-Info Excellence Awards, Exhibition Stands and plenty of opportunities for networking - including a dinner at STEAM, all supported by an interactive DI’18 App. This multi-faceted event has wide MOD/Industry appeal for both Information and Support professionals and reliably delivers a sustained ‘buzz’ of interaction amongst attendees.

We think it remains good value-for-money for sponsors, exhibitors and attendees which adds to this being a must-attend Team Defence event for MOD plus Industry suppliers and Industry users of MOD services.
