Team Defence Australia

Sitting within the Australian Defence Export Office, Team Defence Australia is the premier national platform for export-capable Australian defence and dual-use companies to showcase their goods, services, technology and solutions at international trade events.

Team Defence Australia works with defence industry, the Office of Defence Industry Support (ODIS)Austrade and state and territory governments to help prepare Australian delegation’s attendance at overseas trade shows and ensure they maximise their international exposure. 

Attending an overseas trade show or participating in a trade mission with Team Defence Australia is a cost-effective option for eligible companies looking to export their products and services, benchmark themselves internationally or research their competitors. Team Defence Australia procures the floor space and builds the exhibition stand, with companies only needing to finance their flights and accommodation.

COVID-19 update

Team Defence Australia (TDA) is closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19 on international defence trade shows.

In addition to event organisers' decisions to cancel or postpone, TDA’s decision to participate in trade shows will be based on government advice provided through Smartraveller, as well as any travel-related restrictions and/or implications both for the host nation and on return to Australia.

Participants are expected to conduct their own risk assessment and determine how best to obtain value from attending trade shows as well as how to manage health risks.

Companies are selected to participate in Defence delegations based on their product offerings and proven track record in line with the domain or focus of each event.

Expressions of interest (EOI) for these events are made available through the Australian Defence Export Office Industry Capability Network (ICN) page. Companies will need to register on ICN in order to submit an EOI.
