Co-located with three major international defence and homeland security exhibitions; NECE 2008, MSI 2008 and BSEC 2008 - and preceding their respective conferences – the one-day DNS Leadership Summit will bring together over 250 of the most senior officials and executives from over 9000 visitors to the three exhibitions. ‘We – and I also speak for our many partners in India and throughout the world – are very excited about this important new confluence of peer-to-peer contact and thought leadership within the international defence and homeland security community.
