DIT DSO Support
DIT DSO will be inviting International Delegations to visit the UK zone enabling you to showcase your capabilities to a captive audience. When we have a better understanding of the exact delegates who will be in attendance we will target those most relevant to your companies’ capabilities and prospects.
The UK Pavilion
The idea is to have a central hub consisting of a DSO meeting room, with EST Product Support alongside. Around this hub CLARION will be responsible for creating and selling stand space to UK companies to create the UK Pavilion.
Our Export Support Team
Our Export Support Team (EST) will have a Product Display stand on the UK Pavilion to exhibit your equipment. The space offers a good opportunity to have our UK Military in uniform showcase your equipment to a wide audience from the region and beyond. The cost is £3025 + VAT (please see below for more details on how to secure a space).
Our Senior Press Officer will also be in attendance to help with any media enquires you may have during the week or to help publicise your equipment at the Event, should you wish to do so.
