DVD2022, Millbrook, 21st – 22nd September, 2022

DVD is a biennial Defence industry exhibition staged at UTAC Millbrook that enables focussed engagement between Defence industry, DE&S Delivery Teams, Army HQ staff and other Defence community users of Land Equipment.

It is a well-established two-day event held at UTAC Millbrook jointly sponsored by Defence Equipment & Support (Land Equipment) and Army Headquarters – the MOD teams responsible for equipping and supporting the UK’s Armed Forces for current and future operations.

DVD provides an effective and efficient forum for all those involved in the Land Equipment sector to develop ideas and generate a greater understanding of technologies, capabilities and requirements. DVD remains an important event enabling this coordinated engagement through informal discussion, briefings, demonstrations and displays. Other stakeholders from across the MOD are also welcome to attend to broaden perspectives and encourage innovation.

DVD2022 will showcase the development and delivery of world-class capabilities across the spectrum of Land Equipment, reflecting current procurement and upgrade programmes and future capability requirements.

THE EVENT for Land Equipment stakeholders will bring together acquisition teams and Defence industry, focusing on future requirements and opportunities over two days of informal discussions, engagement with users, briefings, seminars, demonstrations and live displays.

Attendees will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of equipment on display, from both industry and the military, including everything from specialist vehicles to the equipment and services necessary to support land-based military operations.

Major General Darren Crook, Director Land Equipment explains: “I’m delighted with the announcement of DVD2022, following 2020’s disappointing cancellation due to COVID 19. DVD is an important and valued event that brings together industry, international allies, and partners; DE&S and the British Army have been hosting it for many years, enabling visitors to gain hands-on experience of cutting-edge equipment.

“I’m looking forward to finding out more about new and emerging technologies and developing ideas for how these could benefit the UK’s Land Forces. DVD offers a unique opportunity to enhance our shared understanding of the challenges we currently face in the Land Equipment industry and the opportunities for future engagement and collaboration.”
