Registration is also open for the NDA Estate’s Supply Chain Event, in November 2015, for delegates and exhibitors wishing to reserve a place.
Now believed to be the largest event of its kind in Europe, last year it saw around 1,500 visitors enjoying a hugely successful day of informal networking and presentations by a range of high-level speakers.
Under this year’s theme ‘Innovate and Collaborate’, the speakers will include:
- A senior Government Minister
- NDA Chief Executive John Clarke
- Rear Adminral Mike Wareham, Director of Submarines, Ministry of Defence
Launched in 2012, the NDA and Site Licence Companies (SLCs) jointly sponsor the Supply Chain awards. The deadline for submissions is 11 September 2015 with entry categories updated to bring an additional focus on exports and technology innovation.
The award scheme attracts entries from across the UK and is part of a series of measures to improve the visibility of opportunities for suppliers in the decommissioning sector, particularly for smaller businesses.
The winners will be announced during the NDA Estate Supply Chain Event at EventCity, Manchester, on 4 November 2015, where the awards ceremony will be a key highlight of the day.
Visitors will also have opportunities to meet buyers and sellers from around the NDA Estate and other Government departments.
Both admission and exhibition space and to the NDA Estate Supply Chain Event are free of charge, however, optional lighting and electrical equipment will be subject to a small cost.
