HALF DAY INDUSTRY BRIEFING – Working with the Defence Sector

July 22, 2016
The Geelong Defence Alliance (GDA) of which the GMC is a member, has organised an industry briefing session for local companies involved in or interested in supply chains for the defence sector. Following this there is the opportunity to a one-on-one discussion on your company’s offering.

In the lead up to Land Forces 2016 in Adelaide on the 6-8th  September the GDA  has commissioned industry experts Matthew Jones and Brydon Johnson to facilitate these two industry information sessions in Geelong at no cost.

This is a great opportunity for Geelong Manufacturing Council and Engineering Network Geelong members to learn more about defence supply opportunities/needs and develop offerings.

Please see below for more information and registration.
