DSEI 2023

DSEI, one of the world's largest arms fairs, plans to return from 12-15 September 2023.

Last updated 20 July 2023

Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) covers the full range of military and security equipment. Weapons on display ranged from small arms and armoured vehicles, to combat aircraft and warships. Past years have seen drone displays and demonstrations of equipment taking place in Victoria Dock, next to the ExCeL centre which hosts the event.

They say:

DSEI connects governments, national armed forces, industry thought leaders and the entire defence & security supply chain on a global scale.

A number of grass roots groups are organising protests against the arms fair, both during the week of the event and the week previous. You can find out more via the Stop the Arms Fair website, or by emailing [email protected]
