In 2001 it moved to its current location at the ExCeL Exhibition
Centre in London Docklands. DSEI’s name was changed in 2009,
replacing the word Systems with Security.
In April 2008, DSEI was acquired by Clarion Events. The Clarion
Events’ portfolio of defence and security events is acknowledged
as the world’s leading forums where high level government
officials and senior military personnel converge. Leading
global equipment and services providers meet to share ideas,
discuss industry developments, conduct business, and develop
partnerships and network for future growth. Whilst military
systems and technology are at the core of the industry and the
events, the sector is also diversifying and adapting to meet the
changing needs of the world. In addition to the threat of war,
national security can be threatened by humanitarian disasters
resulting in mass displacement of people or food and water
shortages, terrorism or pandemic.
All defence and security exhibitions in the UK including DSEI
can serve only the legitimate defence and security industry which
is the most tightly regulated industry in the world. This means
exhibitors and visitors must adhere to the highest regulatory
scrutiny, complying with UK and international laws, treaties
and conventions. DSEI itself works closely with government
departments including MOD, Foreign and Commonwealth Office,
BIS and Home Office to ensure this strict compliance with all rules,
regulations and laws. Furthermore, the UK Government itself is
responsible for inviting international delegations.


DSEI is divided into dedicated capability zones to make it more
manageable to navigate, as it truly is a gargantuan show! DSEI
2017 featured its strongest aerospace offering to date, comprising
fixed, rotary wing, and unmanned platforms. The popular Air Zone
was fully supported by the Royal Air Force and Joint Helicopter
Command and included a capability area dedicated to the
aerospace supply chain. With an impressive array of static displays
expected to feature around the ExCeL concourse, as well as a
notable line up of rotary assets operating in the maritime domain,

DSEI was the must-attend event for the entire aerospace sector. Air
Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Hillier KCB CBE DFC, Chief of the Air Staff,
delivered a keynote address at DSEI on Wednesday 13 September
in the West Theatre. Chaired by Air Marshall Philip Sturley CB MBE
FRAeS and industry expert Howard Wheeldon, the Air Capability
Conference examined “The Next Generation of Air Capability”.
The Naval Zone was the most comprehensive dedicated Naval
Zone in DSEI history. In addition to the 1,600 DSEI exhibitors the
Zone incorporated over 50 specialist naval exhibitors and was
fully supported by the First Sea Lord and Royal Navy. The Naval
Zone was one of DSEI 2017’s greatest strengths with 16 nations
represented, twice as many than the 2015 show. It provided
the DSEI audience with unrivalled networking opportunities,
insights from key decision makers and the opportunity to see
first-hand the industry’s latest vessels in action with interactive
presentations and waterborne demonstrations. DSEI 2017 hosted
eight warships and a number of rotary assets that operate in the
