The Zone also includes a newly formed Hub dedicated to Space, as well as the popular Air Seminar featuring high-level military and industry speakers, including Chief of the Air Staff.
The Land Zone is DSEI’s largest zone, featuring the latest in vehicles, weapons, ammunitions and equipment.

“On behalf of the Army, please accept my sincere thanks for the support provided by Clarion to our contribution to this year’s Defence and Security Equipment International exhibition. The provision of the Army stand, the impressive logistic and marketing support and the professional one team approach that your staff adopted enabled the delivery of a first class Army contribution to the exhibition and a clear step-up from 2015. Please convey my thanks to all involved; their work did not go unseen and was sincerely appreciated. It undoubtedly contributed significantly to the success of the event from the Army perspective. We look forward to working with you again for the 2019 exhibition,” comments General Sir Nicholas Carter, then Chief of the General Staff

DSEI’s distinctive dockside setting delivers a dazzling showcase of maritime capabilities and international warships. Fully supported by the Royal Navy and First Sea Lord, the Naval Zone provides our audience with unrivalled networking opportunities, insights from key decision makers and the opportunity to see the industry’s latest vessels in action through interactive presentations and waterborne demonstrations.
“Once again the Royal Navy is proud to be at the vanguard of DSEI 2019. Our relationship with the defence industrial sector is stronger than ever as we work alongside the nation’s resurgent ship building industry and our valued international partners to realise an ambitious and innovative equipment programme that will form the heart of the Royal Navy for decades to come. We are determined to meet the challenges of the future and DSEI is an ideal opportunity to advance the academic and professional debate,” comments Admiral Sir Philip Jones, First Sea Lord.

DSEI will once again feature an impressive array of naval static displays. In 2017 the dock showcased a range of ships including a Type 23 ‘Duke’ Class frigate (HMS Argyll), Belgian Navy Ops Vessel (BNS Pollux) and Irish Naval Service Offshore Patrol Vessel (Le Samuel Beckett).
The Security Zone is a dedicated showcase of security equipment, technologies, strategies and systems to counter priority threats; such as cyber-attacks, hybrid warfare and terrorism.
It will provide an opportunity for security professionals from industry, government, policing/military and the private sector to examine the latest capabilities available.
With the increasing prevalence of cyber-security attacks, the ability to counter such threats has never been of greater importance. New to 2019, DSEI’s Cyber Hub will feature a range of exhibitors from the innovative, growing cyber security industry, underpinned by world-leading scientific research and development. The Security Seminar Theatre will also host a Cyber Security Focus Day, taking place on the 10th of Tuesday and free to attend.
The Joint Zone offers a plethora of products from exhibitors within the following sectors: C4ISTAR, Communications, DIO, Electronic Warfare, Joint Enablers, Logistics, Medical, Robotics & Telemedicine.
“DSEI 2017 was an excellent opportunity for Joint Forces Command (JFC) to showcase its guiding principles of using innovation, integration and information to secure advantage for the Joint Force. The event provided JFC, in its role as the ‘Information Command’, with a well-organized forum that enabled us to speak directly to the industry partners who can deliver the technology that JFC needs to make it’s Miltech innovation vision a reality. The DSEI team also helped us to organize some excellent ‘Space’ and ‘Cyber’ themed events which brought together a range of UK specialists, academics, overseas counterparts and industry. These events proved to be an ideal platform to explore some challenging issues in new and interesting ways. We look forward to a similarly positive experience at the next event,” concludes General Sir Chris Deverell KCB MBE ADC Gen, Commander, Joint Forces Command.
DSEI will take place at the ExCel London on 10-13 September 2019. Registration can be found online.
