DSEI Connect


Forces Focus is by invitation only for attendees who are engaged in legitimate areas of defence and associated industry, the government, equipment procurement organisations, defence colleges and research establishments.

Anyone wishing to attend must register via the DSEI Connect website. Registrations should be completed as soon as possible to ensure there is adequate time to process and approve the application prior to the event.


All stand personnel, visitors, academics, guests, stand contractors and service providers should register. Their names will be subject to a security clearance process.

Cancellation and Substitution policy: Please notify us in writing by emailing with your name, job title, email address & telephone number.

No person named on the badge or the company, firm or business, which that person represents, may permit the badge to be worn by another person. The wearing of a badge under these circumstances will constitute appropriation, an automatic termination of such licence and will be sufficient grounds for the unauthorised individual to be removed from the exhibition. It may also lead to prosecution. Identity checks will be conducted as a condition of entry.

All persons attending the Forces Focus should carry and produce on request a supporting personal photographic identity document - passport, photo- ID, military ID, driving licence, national identity document or similar.

Without prejudice, the Organisers reserve the right to exclude any person(s).

No photography or filming of stands and/or exhibits is allowed without the expressed permission of the stand manager. Exhibitors are allowed to photograph and film their own stands.

Closed Circuit Television Cameras (CCTV) will be in operation at all times during Forces Focus.

The Organisers reserve the right to deliver the CCTV recordings to the Police or other competent authority as evidence if requested to do so. The contents of such recordings may be used as evidence in a court of law. For further information contact the Security Manager.

The Organisers reserve the right to film/permit approved third party filming during Forces Focus. By attending the show, visitors permit the Organisers/approved third parties to use any footage taken.

Any person in possession of non-permitted items will be refused entry to or ejected from the venue and site. Prohibited items include knives, fireworks, explosives, smoke canisters, aerosols, air-horns, noisemakers, flares, weapons, dangerous or hazardous items, illegal substances, laser devices, bottles, glass vessels, cans, poles, or any article that may compromise public safety or which may pose a hazard or nuisance to any other person. 

Attendees should be aware that the purchase, procurement or brokering of any exhibit or promoted item on display at DSEI may require the granting of a strategic export license from the relevant UK government organisation. For more information and to access a copy of the legislation please see the guide on the Export Control Order 2008 on the ECO website.

Any visitor who at the sole discretion of the Organiser is deemed to be engaging in controlled business or activity during the exhibition and who is not in possession of relevant trade control licenses may be subject to action on the part of the Organisers including revocation of the application to attend and expulsion from the event. The ECJU and other relevant authorities will be informed of any such activity, which may result in legal action being taken against the visitor by these authorities. Visitors expelled from the event will have no claim for redress against the Organisers, nor any refund for loss of fees.

All persons attending must wear business or service dress.

No person under the age of 18 years, including children of exhibitors, will be admitted during the tenancy period.

I consent to this personal data being used to contact me about their products or services and understand that this partner or sponsor may transfer this data outside of the European Economic Area for these purposes and I consent to such a transfer of my data. I also understand and agree that my personal data may be held and used by the organiser of this event Clarion Events Ltd, and any third party hosting provider acting on its behalf, in order to run the event and for analysing visitor traffic with a view to improving the event experience for visitors.
