This biannual Anglo-French defence industry conference alternates between France and the UK. It has an exclusive audience of UK and French companies and government departments.  The number of participants grows by 10% for each edition.  In 2009 there were two separate conference streams; in 2013 it will increase to three.

Why Lille Grand Palais ?

For three main reasons….First, logistics pure and simple. 40% of our delegates are French and based in Paris and another 40% are from the UK and mainly based in London. So the Eurostar is the obvious choice plus the fact that Lille has good train connections for those coming from other areas of France.

Second, Lille Grand Palais has the scale and scope to be able to handle three different conference streams with an exhibition alongside.

Third, the people at Lille Grand Palais are great to work with and very helpful. 4 years on we’re coming back to Lille and working with the same team.
