“Undersea Defence Technology (UDT) is the underwater defence and security community's most relevant yearly exhibition and conference. It brings together professionals from the military, industry and academia to focus on the new technologies and developments within the underwater domain. I am proud that this year`s event is arranged here in Norway.” 
Øystein Bø, State Secretary for Ministry of Defence, Norway 

"UDT is a very good show that my company has been attending for over three years. We are here to meet with vendors and develop further projects. This is very positive for us and the show is busy with the relevant people".
Yoav Banai, International Marketing & Sales Manager, Karil International

"UDT is Saab’s main event for our unmanned underwater vehicle portfolio where we can meet most customers and business partners in one location.

The organisation of the event is superb with full commitment from clarion to supply the best service to the participation companies and conference delegates."
Saab, Bert Johansson

"Very interesting and relevant conferences. Besides, on UDT we get to create contacts with people coming from different part of the industry, which is very useful. In half of a day, I’ve already talked to 20 companies. I am very keen to come to Oslo next year and reiterate the experience!"
Konstantin Sariev, Senior Engineer

"At UDT there is a good mix of technical presentations and commercial engagement. I’ve found it to be a focused audience and gathering of like-minded individuals. Overall UDT has a comprehensive conference programme."
Dr Kieran Rutherford, DSTL

"It’s my first time here at UDT. It’s a great opportunity to meet people from around the world in this field. The subject of the presentations are very interesting. The conference has been very well organised with nice facilities. I just wish that there were more of me so that I could attend all the sessions."
Dr H Todd Kauderer

"This is the first time I am coming to UDT and I like it very much. The conferences and speakers are highly relevant to me and I have learnt a lot. UDT is the perfect place to meet people and share common interests".
Henning Opskar, Commander

"I found the Sonar tracking session was very interesting and the torpedo batteries was more commercial with interesting differences in the speaker’s approaches. It has been interesting to see the different northern European countries represented on the exhibition floor."
Lt Francois Dumas, France

"The UDT provides a focused platform to view and discuss a wide range of contemporary and emerging technologies connected with the undersea warfare domain. It is an extremely informative and educative experience as the conference and exhibition complement each other most effectively. This provides the participant - designer, engineer and most important the user, an opportunity to better understand the conceptual and practical aspects of these modern technologies. Needless to add, the flawless conduct of the entire event adds further value to the entire experience."
Commodore Anil Jai Singh, IN ( Retd), Vice President and Head-Delhi branch, Indian Maritime Foundation

‘This is my first time at UDT and my experience here is very positive.  I have had good conversations with many exhibitors in my field. UDT presents is the ideal platform to get to know the entire industry in one event’,
Mr Roelof  Van den Berg, Atlas Eletronik.

“It has been really a great event in Oslo. I find that it has been an incredibly good mix of Military Officials, Industries, Technicians, experts, exhibitions and conferences. Congratulations for this further Clarion success and thank you again for your kind support and for facilitating such a fruitful networking event.”
Dario Giacomin, Rear Admiral, Head of the Submarines, Italian Navy
