DDAC 2022

Due to Covid-19, DDAC is postponed until 23 August 2022 and will open with an icebreaker on the evening of 22 August.

What can I expect?

Danish Defence Annual Conference - DDAC - is the main event of the Danish Defence Industry and the largest of its kind on Danish soil. The conference is hosted by DI Danish Defence and Security Association, CenSec, and Naval Team Denmark alternating between Aalborg and Copenhagen.

DDAC attracts more than 300 participants from Denmark and abroad who will discuss relevant policy issues, defence matters and industry aspects. The conference offers a unique opportunity to gain new insights and to meet and network with leaders of the defence industry, and to discuss with and gain knowledge from high-level decision-makers from the Danish Ministry of Defence, the armed forces, universities, and a wide range of defence companies.

DDAC 2022 will amongst other things focus on emerging disruptive technologies, future acquisitions, and future trends in Defence. Go to full programme.

What do I need to know?

The event will take place on August 23, 2022, at the Confederation of Danish Industry at Industriens Hus, Copenhagen.

The conference offers an interesting programme, exciting speeches, and great opportunities for you to network with your colleagues in the industry. It will open with an icebreaker on the evening of the 22nd of August.

Notice that DDAC 2022 will take place the day before the annual Industry Day organized by The Danish Ministry of Defence Acquisition and Logistics (DALO).
