Team Defence Australia

Sitting within the Australian Defence Export Office, Team Defence Australia is the premier national platform for export-capable Australian defence and dual-use companies to showcase their goods, services, technology and solutions at international trade events.

Team Defence Australia works with defence industry, the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC)Austrade and state and territory governments to help prepare Australian delegation’s attendance at overseas trade shows and ensure they maximise their international exposure. The CDIC supports Team Defence Australia by managing expressions of interest and leveraging relationships with prime companies through the Global Supply Chain program.

Attending an overseas trade show or participating in a trade mission with Team Defence Australia is a cost-effective option for eligible companies looking to export their products and services, benchmark themselves internationally or research their competitors. Team Defence Australia procures the floor space and builds the exhibition stand, with companies only needing to finance their flights and accommodation.

Team Defence Australia events

Companies are selected to participate in Defence delegations based on their product offerings and proven track record in line with the domain or focus of each event.

Expressions of interest (EOI) for these events are made available through the Australian Defence Export Office Industry Capability Network (ICN) page. Companies will need to register on ICN in order to submit an EOI.

Expressions of interest for these events are advertised in the CDIC newsletter. Register for the CDIC newsletter to keep up-to-date with events.

The ADEO provides eligible companies with the opportunity to exhibit on the Team Defence Australia stand free of charge.

The CDIC provides a range of training and mentoring options in the lead up to a Team Defence Australia event, such as presentation skills training, perfecting the quad chart and cultural awareness training.

Quad charts are required for all Team Defence Australia trade events and are recognised as a key marketing tool by defence primes and other military and commercial customers around the world. The CDIC can provide assistance and training to help you understand and articulate your company’s value proposition.
