Public service provider Serco Group plc is to join other major contributors at one of this year’s largest gatherings in the UK’s Defence procurement and supply chain sector.

Defence Procurement, Research, Technology & Exportability 20 is a one-day event being held at the Farnborough International Exhibition Centre on Wednesday, 1st April.

Delegates visiting exhibit stands spread over six different knowledge zones will have an opportunity to meet representatives from Serco.

Serco Group plc is a British-based provider of public services in a range of sectors of public service provision, including Defence, in the UK & Europe, Asia Pacific, North America and the Middle East.

Simon Burges, Managing Director of DPRTE, said: “I’m happy to confirm that Serco will be in the Engagement Zone at DPRTE this year, and they will also have a speaking slot.

“Adding yet another new prime to the list of participants at DPRTE demonstrates the importance this event now has in the UK’s Defence acquisition and supply chain marketplace, which is worth more than £20 billion annually.”

Serco joins a busy programme of high-profile speakers at DPRTE, including James Heappey, the UK Government’s minister responsible for Defence Procurement, Ruth Todd, Commercial Director of the UK’s Submarine Delivery Agency, Andrew Forzani, Chief Commercial Officer for the UK Ministry of Defence and motivational speaker Colonel Tim Colins OBE.

The DPRTE is officially supported by key Defence prime contractors and Government procurement organisations. Expecting more than 1,500 delegates from the UK MOD, academia and industry, DPRTE 2020 will be the largest gathering of key people from across Defence procurement.

The event aims to provide a unique opportunity for buyers and suppliers of all sizes to engage across a range of interactive and educational features and speeches to enhance knowledge, collaboration and develop business opportunities. For more information visit our website
