[/vc_column_text][vcex_spacing][vc_column_text]On the heels of the success of our 2023 event, we are already well into the planning for our biggest and best year to date. We are excited to share several new developments we are looking at for this year’s event including:

  • Expansion to the full 120,000 square feet of the world-class Halifax Convention Centre (50% increase over last year!)
  • Largest exhibition to date with the inclusion of new spaces on the Convention Level
  • More centralized and improved layout for the ever-popular B2B Meetings Program
  • Larger number of fully private and lockable meeting rooms on multiple levels of the building
  • Enhancement of the Educational Workshops Classroom Series
  • Expanded area and capacity for the Presentation Pavilion
  • Beautiful open-style windowed space on the Ballroom Level for the event’s receptions
  • Ability to host even more of the week’s related events (such as Industry Days) within the building
  • Addition of the Academic Showcase (watch for an announcement soon!) bringing the defence industry and academia into one location
  • Working together with the OCEANS 2024 Halifax Conference & Exhibition taking place the week before our event to create opportunities for attendees to participate in both events
  • Complete re-design and enhancement of the event’s web presence

With the planning for the changes in the venue layout for the 2024 event, we have decided to extend the right of first refusal deadline for 2023 exhibitors and sponsors to January 15, 2024. For those that have not already confirmed their participation for next year, we will be reaching out to everyone through December and January. Once the deadline passes, we will open sales for the exhibition floor booths and sponsorship opportunities.

Anyone interested in renewing from last year or who would like to express interest to be put on the initial outreach list once we open up sales, should contact Colin Stephenson, our Executive Director, as soon as possible, by e-mail at or by phone at +1 (902) 223-2099.

With an 80%+ renewal rate year to year, we expect booth and sponsorship sales to sell again early this year… Don’t miss your opportunity!

Be sure to watch for announcements about 2024 on our LinkedIn and Twitter accounts, by signing up for our eNewsletter and eventually with the launch of our new web site.
