The ADM Congress, held every February and now into its 15th year, is Australia's only Canberra-based annual Defence conference.
This pre-eminent gathering features keynote addresses from the Minister for Defence, the Chief of the Defence Force, Chiefs of both the Army and Navy, and the Deputy Secretary and First Assistant Secretary from the newly created Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group.
Budgetary analysis will be provided by ASPI, and industry perspectives will be delivered by CEOs of the nation's leading defence suppliers.
Further information regarding the event in 2018 will be provided here in due course, but for now save the date!
As many know, the RAN is going through its biggest fleet recapitalisation since WWII. ADM Editor Katherine Ziesing spoke with Chief of Navy Vice Admiral Tim Chief Barrett about how these various programs are coming together, the challenges ahead and how Navy will respond to these opportunities.
