Who attends UDT?

UDT is globally recognised as the primary meeting place for members of the undersea defence community. The three-day exhibition and conference attracts more than 1,500 visitors, with rapidly increasing representation from serving military personnel.

Alongside our technical planning committee comprised of undersea defence experts from industry and military domains, our ongoing focus is to add value for all event stakeholders. We know the level of investment required to participate in trade shows, and ensure exhibitors and visitors alike are offered the best possible experience.

Quality and quantity

Factoring in the valuable suggestions of previous participants, our committee work extensively throughout the year to compile a compelling and challenging conference programme. This, alongside a varied exhibition of relevant solution providers, is the basis upon which we continue to attract a high-quality audience of influential decision makers.

While we were pleased to reach record visitor satisfaction in 2019, we will continue to invest additional resources to deliver high quality, relevant content and new features to continue the event's evolution.

VIP engagement

VIP engagement

There were 95 visiting VIPs and delegations in Stockholm for UDT 2019, a 12% improvement compared to the previous edition.

This number is expected to rise further at UDT 2021. As an exhibitor in 2021, you can expect to meet with high profile influencers, including national government representatives, ministry and central defence staff and armed services. As ever, our VIP engagement team will be on hand to facilitate productive meetings, as part of an improved matchmaking service.
