ADM Events is pleased to announce that the 13th Annual ADM Congress will be held on 9th February 2016 at the Hyatt Hotel, Canberra.

With a raft of defence policy due for imminent release including the upcoming Defence White Paper, Defence Investment Plan, Defence Industry Policy Statement, and the enterprise level Naval Shipbuilding Plan; now is an important time for defence & industry engagement in discussing long term defence strategy that will guide defence capability into the future.

Furthermore, the implementation of recommendations from the highly anticipated First Principles Review will lead the necessary reform agenda needed to integrate defence and enhance joint capability.

ADM2016 will have a theme and focus on ‘Australian Made Defence’ and will hear from government ministers, defence chiefs, the leadership of the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group, prime contractors and SMEs; which tethered with forthcoming policy dialogue will ensure Australia has a sustainable and viable defence industry.
