Defence + Industry Conference 2020

While it’s been a challenging year to date, we’re excited to announce that the D+I Conference 2020 is going ahead in an online format due to COVID-19 travel and gathering restrictions, with all sessions streamed nationwide on 15 October 2020 including on the Defence Protected Network (DPN).

In line with previous events, we‘ve kept the winning formula for the Conference connecting delegates with Senior Defence decision makers via live questioning during our Q&A sessions.

Following on from your 2019 feedback, the D+I Conference program (attached) has been designed to incorporate Ministerial updates, Senior Defence and Service Chief presentations along with thought provoking topics as we navigate through the challenges of 2020 and beyond.

Streaming of the D+I Conference for this year is complimentary, so if you’d like to register to access the nationwide stream please complete the registration form found here.  Please ensure you complete all fields in the registration form as we will be unable to process incomplete requests.

Please note due to capacity limitations on the DPN, registrations for Defence delegates (APS and ADF) are limited to 900, so please submit your expression of interest via the registration form above. Unsuccessful applicants will be notified.

Registrations will close on Friday 9 October 2020, so get in quick so you don’t miss out!

The D+I Conference live stream login details will be sent on Monday 12 October 2020 and will come from Chime Live ( ). If you haven’t received your login details by Tuesday 13 October 2020, please check your junk/spam folder.

For those who aren’t available on the day of the conference, don’t worry we’ll be posting videos of all sessions online post event so you don’t miss out.

We hope you enjoy this alternate format of the D+I Conference for 2020, and look forward to seeing you online at this year’s event.
