The Manufacturer Webinar in collaboration with: NWAA & Accenture

20 February | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

How Procurement Plays its part in the Ever-Evolving Defence Industry


In a volatile global landscape, the Defence Industry is operating in a period of great uncertainty with high regulation and compliance pressures. Gartner’s survey revealed 47% Aerospace and Defence companies reported supply chain disruptions in the past 12 months, each costing an average of $184 million. Despite technology’s pivotal role in moving the A&D industry forward with strength, there has been a 26% increase in supply chain security breaches, as reported by Bluevoyant in 2023.  

Join our webinar where we navigate the complex world of Aerospace and Defence and its supplier base. Our expert panel will discuss mitigating supply chain risks and share best practices to enhance supply chain resilience, ensure supplier collaboration and address environmental concerns. 

REGISTER NOW to future-proof your A&D organisation, fostering continuity, agility and security of the supply chain.

  • How to prepare your organisation for the uncertain future we are facing?
