This Week's Highlight - Avalon Airshow

The Avalon International Airshow is fast approaching. Held every two years, the airshow showcases Australian aerospace industry with flying demonstrations and an extensive static exhibition space. The displays are both miltary and commercial, however the Defence presence is quite prominent. As such, with all the key players in attendance, these conferences and exhibitions are a great opportunity for the Department of Defence to hold industry briefs or one on one meetings with potential industry partners on upcoming procurements.

The following notices have been issued regarding upcoming Defence procurements and would be worth attending both to hear the information provided and to get a feel of potential competition or collaboration opportunities.
