Introducing you to the defence industry at DVD 2010

DVD is Defence Equipment and Support’s (DE&S) annual stakeholder event for the Land Equipment and Joint Support Chain communities, together with the Air Commodities team. 

Bringing together the armed forces, accredited defence industry with the acquisition community, DVD provides a unique opportunity to learn about, discuss and experience the equipment and support that is critical to the success of the UK’s armed forces.

Held on 23 and 24 June at Millbrook Proving Ground, Bedfordshire, it is organised by DE&S, which is the part of the MOD responsible for equipping and supporting the UK's armed forces for current and future operations.

Members who are participating in the MIA introduction service must apply for free-of-charge visitor entry via the DVD website (www.theevent.co.uk).*
