New Defence Events Calendar Launched

Plan Your Year from DSEI 19 to D-Day 75 and Beyond

The multi-billion defence sector is one of today’s most dynamic industries, with events taking place around the world covering everything from logistics to military satellites, and from training to artificial intelligence.

The big event in Europe this year is DSEI 19, but with the first DSEI Japan planned for November, 2019 is going to be a bumper year. Conference organisers Defence IQ and SMi Defence have also arranged a full programme of conferences across the globe.

2019 is also an especially rich year for anniversaries and commemorations: the 40th anniversary and retirement of the RAF’s Tornado; the 50th anniversary of the Royal Navy’s Operation Relentless, the Continuous-at-Sea Deterrence (CASD 50); the 75th anniversary of D-Day; the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing; the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall; and the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge; as well as the 250th anniversary of the birth of the Duke of Wellington.

“This is an exciting new product for us,” said Warfare.Today’s Managing Editor, Liam, “Since launching at the beginning of 2017, Warfare.Today has seen an exponential growth in its online audience. Our new calendar will reach this targeted audience to guide them through their events planning for the year ahead. I know that it will help me keep track of all that is going on this year.”

This URL ranks on the first page of search engine results (Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo) for “defence events calendar,” meaning that, not only is Warfare.Today directly competing against established names such as Jane’s, but also that Warfare.Today will reach a targeted audience of people specifically searching for defence events, creating new opportunities for event organisers and exhibitors.
