NEWS FROM DVD2020, 4 – 5 November 2020 at Millbrook

NEW DATES ANNOUNCED FOR THE UK’S BIGGEST DEFENCE LAND EQUIPMENT EVENT

Today (8 June 2020) DE&S Land Equipment and Army Headquarters have confirmed that THE EVENT for those involved in equipment and support for the UK’s Land Forces will return to Millbrook on the new dates of 4 and 5 November 2020.

With the challenge of Covid-19 dominating DVD2020 planning conversations over the past few months, organisers have taken the decision to move this showcase of the latest innovations and developments in land equipment, from September to November 2020.

For the first time, DVD2020 will look beyond Defence capabilities to explore the technologies and equipment used by other sectors and commercial industries. 

The leading stakeholder event will bring together acquisition teams and the Defence industry, focusing on future requirements and opportunities over the two days. Those attending will be able to see a wide range of equipment on display, from industry and the military, including everything from specialist vehicles to the equipment and services necessary to support land-based military operations.

For those involved in Land Equipment for Army, DE&S, other Front Line Commands and the Defence Academy, DVD2020 provides an ideal opportunity to explore new and emerging technologies and develop ideas for how this tech could benefit the UK’s Land Forces in the future.  

Director Land Equipment, Major General Darren Crook explains: “After careful consideration and many conversations between DE&S, Army Headquarters and Millbrook about the most effective and safe way to deliver DVD2020, we have taken the decision to delay the event until November. 

“Although Covid-19 continues to cause challenges for large scale events, we feel that moving to November will give us the best opportunity to run a successful DVD2020, with all of the benefits that exhibitors and visitors expect from this important UK Land Forces event.”

Kevin Leaver, Head of Events at Millbrook, continues: “The safety and security of exhibitors and visitors to DVD2020 is our top priority and all attendees can be assured that we will remain compliant with the very latest Government guidance at the show in November.”
