On the back of our 2020 virtual event, we’re happy to announce that the D+I Conference and Awards will be back as physical events, returning to the National Convention Centre in Canberra on 28-29 July 2021. There will also be an option for “virtual” tickets for the Conference for those who aren’t able to join us in person.
We’ve returned to the winning formula for the D+I Conference, with a mix of Defence and industry presenters and keeping delegates in control through live questioning during our Q&A sessions. We’re working hard to secure all of our speakers and finalise the reinvigorated program that will include some short and sharp presentations about key topics. The draft program is attached.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our previous D+I Awards Corporate Supporters and we’re happy to announce that the 2021 packages have been finalised and are attached. The packages have always been very popular and but are very limited so get in quick to avoid disappointment!
This year we have a fantastic line-up of projects to showcase at the D+I Awards and we’re looking forward to announcing the winners of the inaugural Minister for Defence Industry Australian Industry Capability Award Program and the Defence Industry Service Commendation!
We’ll also have a military band on hand to entertain us, and our menu will again incorporate the best ingredients the Canberra region has to offer.
While we finalise our registration portal, please ensure you save 28-29 July 2021 in your diaries so you don’t miss out!
We look forward to seeing you back in the Nation’s Capital at D+I.

We have planned to have the 2 session day full of Defence Briefings and Networking opportunities on Friday the 25th of June.
Defence Networking Events are critical to your progress in the Defence Industry.
This event brings people together from all around Australia for a fantastic day of networking set amongst an amazing backdrop with morning tea and lunch briefings, as well as a golf competition and then a dinner networking session as well.
You can book in for the full day or join for a half day... but it is an event not to be missed!
Speakers and sponsors are being coordinated now with some very senior stakeholders in Government, Defence and Industry Primes who will provide updates for the year ahead.
We understand that Golf is not everyone's "cup of tea", however the focus is not on golf - but on the networking that happens in the other 6 hours and also the 4 hours on the golf course.
The golf competition is an Ambrose competition, which is played in such a way that all skill levels are catered for and everyone has fun (even if you really can't hit a golf ball!).
Medway Golf Club, 57 Omar Street, Maidstone VIC 3012
TBA, postponed from Friday 25th June 2021 = new date coming very soon... stay tuned for updates!
8:30am - 7pm
