DEFSEC Atlantic presented by the Atlantic Canada Aerospace & Defence Association, is scheduled for October 5-7, 2021 at the Halifax Convention Centre. It will be held as a hybrid in-person/virtual event dependant upon provincial COVID-19 regulations in the province at that time.

DEFSEC Atlantic is a major networking opportunity for the Aerospace, Defence and Security industries - the second largest of its kind in Canada. Focused on showcasing Atlantic Canadian opportunities, the show's worldwide reach creates partnership potential for all attendees. Incorporating elements of both a trade show and a defence procurement conference, it provides access to "the right people" in an engaging and professional setting. All attendees have opportunities to interact with all levels of defence, industry and government participants.

DEFSEC Atlantic gives you access to:

  • a significant number and variety of exhibitors both from Atlantic Canada and beyond
  • international companies and delegates, as well as Canadian Trade Commissioners, to assist you in discovering potential trade and export opportunities
  • excellent networking events both as part of the show and also in tandem with it
  • a relevant and informative seminar series
  • an "intimate" venue small enough to visit and see all exhibitors on the floor
  • informative displays and demonstrations in the indoor booths
  • outdoor demonstrations which in the past have included control of unmanned vehicles (in the air and on water), diving technologies, boat rides, naval vessel tours and more
  • one-stop shopping for information on government programs designed to assist companies to move to the next level
  • everything you require located in a single venue
