Sayres Australia attends LAND FORCES 2022

The International Land Defence Exposition proves a rewarding and valuable experience.

This year, for the first time, Sayres Australia was one of the 810 participating exhibitor companies at Land Forces 2022, the region’s premier biennial International Land Defence Exposition.  With around 20,000 total attendances at the event, the exhibition floor presented endless engagement opportunities. 

Land Forces 2022 took place over 4 – 6 October 2022. Held at the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre, the event attracted record numbers. Land Forces 2022 brought together Australian and international industry, defence, academia, and government representatives. Offering a conference program, an industry exhibition and formal networking and engagement programs, the event was a huge success. 

“We enjoyed meeting other defence industry Small to Medium Enterprises. We also had the opportunity to showcase Sayres Australia’s capability and value-add to other large defence primes,” said Christopher Hunt, Sayres Australia’s Director of Training Development.

In addition to the engagement opportunities, an array of leading Australian capabilities and technology was on display. This was of great interest to Sayres Australia.  “I particularly enjoyed seeing the latest implementation of old and new technologies in training, with the aim of improving the learning experience,” Hunt said.

The event also presented a key forum for the Australian defence industry. Organisations had the chance to explore innovative and collaborative opportunities.  “It was great to meet with other companies to discuss how we can work together, and help on various projects,” said Hunt.

The Sayres Australia team now look forward to exhibiting at the next INDO PACIFIC International Maritime Exposition, to be held in Sydney in November 2023.
