CDID 1200


Come join a new annual event where networking, knowledge exchange, B2B & G2B will be in focus!

Copenhagen Defence Industry Day (CDID) is a new event organized by DI Danish Defence and Security Industry Association (DI FOS) in collaboration with CenSec, Danish Chamber of Commerce, Naval Team Denmark and Danish Maritime. The event will take place annually the day before DALO Industry Days, and thus kick-start a week where the Danish defence industry is in focus.

We expect to attract more than 300 participants from Denmark and abroad who will discuss relevant policy issues, defence matters and industry aspects. The event will thus offer a great opportunity to gain new insights and to meet and network with leaders of the defence industry, and to discuss with and gain knowledge from high-level decision-makers from the Danish Ministry of Defence, the armed forces, universities, and a wide range of defence companies.

The event will give companies and universities the opportunity to exhibit and show case innovative solutions which we hope will encourage networking B2B and G2B. Furthermore, the event will consist of a conference part where we have attracted interesting speakers to discuss three main topics.

Main topics of CDID 2023

National Defence Policy – Building a stronger Danish Defence Force for the Future
Engagement and future opportunities – NATO/EU agendas and perspectives for the coming years
Future Key Technologies – Do we understand the potential and challenges?
CDID 2023 will be moderated by Lotte Mejlhede. Lotte Mejlhede is an international Correspondent working at TV2/Denmark. She is currently covering international defence and security policy, including NATO and the Arctic. Until recently she was based in Brussels reporting on a wide range of European topics, including EU, Brexit and NATO.

The event will start at 09.00 am with a light breakfast and coffee and end at 10.00 pm after a drinks receptionen and a joint networking dinner. Everything is included in the price.
