Danish Defence Industry Day 2024

Danish Defence Industry Day 2024 (DDID) takes place on August 20. Come join us for the annual Defence Industry event where networking, knowledge exchange, B2B & G2B will be in focus!

What can I expect?

DDID is an event organized by DI Danish Defence and Security Industry Association. The event takes place annually the day before DALO Industry Days and thus kick-starts a week where the Danish defence industry is in focus.

We expect to attract around 250 participants from Denmark and abroad who will discuss relevant policy issues, defence matters and industry aspects. The event will thus offer a great 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.

The event will give companies and universities the opportunity to exhibit and show case innovative solutions which we hope will encourage networking B2B and G2B. Furthermore, the event has a conference part where interesting speakers will discuss our main topics:

Main topics of DDID 2024

  • Acquisitions in times of crises
  • Defence digitalization
  • Cyber security and warfare
