The 2018 NZDIA Forum is our 21st forum. We aim to bring together industry (local, regional and international) and a wider range of government interests than has been achieved previously. The NZDIA forum has, for 20 years, been the most important event on NZ soil for defence and industry to come together. This year we are creating the opportunity and space for a wider cross section of industry: local, Australasian and global with a broader interest in national security encompassing defence, to come together.  The speaking and workshop programme is coming together as we identify how best to deliver excellent value to our traditional constituency and new attendees.  There will be something for everyone in the programme, in the exhibition space and in the networking breaks.

Who should attend?
Just about anyone in industry or government with an interest in national security, but in particular:
• NZ businesses including SMEs, with an interest in supplying to defence and national security agencies, existing and aspirational;
• Australian and International organisations currently or desiring to supply into defence and national security agencies and who are looking to build and strengthen understand and relationships;
• Australian and International organisations looking for supply chain partners, with capability and capacity to support their delivery into Australian and International defence projects;
• NZ government agencies interested in joining a wider conversation between industry and government around national security; and
• International government agencies interested in joining a wider global conversation between industry and allied governments around national security.
