WestDef 2018


Building a Sustainable and Innovative Defence Industry in Canada

WestDef began in 2010 as an opportunity to showcase capacity and capability of aerospace and defence companies
in the western region. Over the last 9 years, it has evolved into an event where corporate executives, policy makers, investors, entrepreneurs, innovators and industry thought-leaders gather to examine trends, develop innovation strategies, and discuss supply
chain opportunities. Attendees make high-level contacts, get exclusive insights into opportunities and participate in thought-provoking discussions. WestDef has become a place to meet and connect, it is the only conference of its kind for Aerospace, Defence and Security
in Canada.
