The Partnering with Defence Conference brings together hundreds of employers and Defence representatives to discuss topics which impact both Defence and industry. You will hear from leading Defence and industry experts and there will be plenty of opportunity to network and visit the exhibition stands.

The Partnering with Defence Conference is organised by Defence Relationship Management (DRM). DRM connects the Ministry of Defence and the Armed Forces to UK employers. The aim is to inform and enlighten delegates about the mutual benefit of organisations partnering with Defence. 

The 2023 theme is Connecting Defence People with Employers and will explore the strategic development of Reserves, the employability and skills transfer of those from the Armed Forces community, the impact and support for Armed Forces families and the new Armed Forces Covenant duty.
