Forum overview


The Rockingham Defence Industry Forum is the latest initiative from the City’s Economic Development Strategy 2020 – 2025. The aim of the forum is to provide local businesses with valuable knowledge and understanding of the defence industry and upcoming Defence sector opportunities within the Rockingham region, where over $1 billion will be invested in infrastructure over the next 10 years.

Speakers from Defence West and industry leaders such as Thales, Lendlease and Ventia will give an overview of their involvement in the Defence supply chain.

This full day workshop Forum will include a Q&A panel discussion at the end of each session, concluding with a one hour networking session.

Learning outcomes


Hear from one of our Defence Business Advisers on 'How to enter into the Defence Industry Supply Chain'. Other topics that will be discussed include:
