2022 Hunter Defence Conference

After a successful 2021, the Hunter Defence Conference is back bigger and better in 2022. This year sees the conference extended from two to three days to include more speakers, content, and opportunities to network with defence primes, SMEs, academia, and the Department of Defence. There will also be an exhibition component in 2022, providing an opportunity for those working with – or wanting to work with Defence – a chance to directly showcase their offerings. This year's conference will focus around two key areas: Demonstrating the increased SME capabilities, and Defence plans and projects.
