The annual Hunter Defence Conference is the premier event on the regional Defence calendar.

It brings together industry, defence force and government stakeholders for two days to discuss global and national trends and preview upcoming opportunities in the sector.

The 10th anniversary Hunter Defence Conference in 2019 was focused on driving collaboration between Defence Primes, regional SMEs, tertiary and vocational training providers and the Department of Defence, with a keynote address by former Minister for Defence and Defence Industry Christopher Pyne.

Presentations were given by key capability development staff from Army, Navy and Air Force, as well as Defence Primes articulating their support requirements for the next decade.

The conference provides valuable networking opportunities for industry stakeholders at all levels and is a ‘must attend’ event for SMEs aiming to break into the lucrative Defence supply chain or grow their market in the industry.
