This pre-eminent gathering features keynote addresses from the Minister for Defence, the Chief of the Defence Force, Chiefs of both the Army and Navy, and the Deputy Secretary and First Assistant Secretary from the newly created Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group.

Budgetary analysis will be provided by ASPI, and industry perspectives will be delivered by CEOs of the nation's leading defence suppliers.
