As Europe's largest exhibition and technical conference for the international undersea defence community, UDT offers a range of opportunities to help you maximise your networking potential across the three event days. Right from booking meetings in a formal setting at the show to joining your peers for a glass of wine at the more relaxed evening networking reception - attendees are encouraged to get involved in every possible way. Are you ready to foster meaningful business connections?

NEW for 2024: Power Hours

UDT networking opportunities


Introducing 'Power Hours'. Last year our research showed that attendees wanted more opportunities to meet informally. So we have created some informal networking sessions so that attendees and exhibitors can meet and do business more easily.

We have two, one-hour sessions that will take place at the following times:

Exhibitors and military: 10 April,  11:30-12:30

SME & PRIME companies: 11 April, 09:45-10:45

Exhibitor Hospitality Evening

UDT networking opportunities

10 April: 17:30-19:30

Day 2 of the show ends with the exhibitor drinks reception that is held on the exhibition show floor.

Exhibiting companies welcome attendees to their stands to enjoy some relaxed hospitality. Not only does this opportunity prove to be a great way to build new contacts but is also the perfect way to continue conversations from the day into the evening. Interested in sponsoring the reception?
