Amongst the networking, a number of industry announcements were also made:

Chief Executive of Defence SA, Richard Price, said it was a successful event for all involved.

“Land Forces was a brilliant opportunity for the South Australian contingent to connect with other world-class suppliers in the global supply chain for major defence projects,” he said.

“We have an impressive line-up of defence companies delivering a range of different capabilities, technologies and services and Land Forces provides the ideal platform to showcase how South Australian industry can support the Australian Defence Force to meet the strategic challenges we face.”
