DPRTE 2024 wrap up

Date: March 28, 2024

Yesterday was the 2024 Defence Procurement, Research, Technology & Exportability (DPRTE) event, held in the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre.

As the leading UK defence procurement event, a delegation from Sweet Projects attended to build connections and showcase our work. The team (see above) had a great day catching up with former colleagues, current partners and new contacts, with more than 2,700 attendees from across the defence procurement community.

Our DPRTE team this year were:

– Our Sustainability Lead Tezeta Shimelis
– Technical Director Roy Andrade B.Eng (Hons) C.Eng FCIBSE
– Defence Director Tom Jacobs
– Asst. quantity surveyor Will Flinn
– NED and former Rear Admiral Bob Tarrant
– Director of People and Performance Manley Hopkinson FRSA FRGS

Here are a few pictures from our day, on the stand and at various talks and seminars from industry colleagues, with varied topics from digital and technology, technical opportunities, changes to procurement and – importantly – sustainability.

Thanks to the team DPRTE 2024, BiP Solutions, and the staff at Farnborough for a great conference.

Here’s a brief recap from our Defence Director Tom Jacobs, and we look forward to speaking to you all next year.
