Danish Defence Annual Conference

Danish Defence Annual Conference (DDAC) is the premium annual event and two-day conference in the defence and security industry in Denmark and attracts +300 participants. The event is hosted by CenSec, FAD and Naval Team Denmark. The conference is usually held in February, but due to the Covid-19 situation we have decided to postpone the conference until 1-2 September 2021

The conference offers a unique opportunity to meet and network with leaders of the defence industry, and discuss with and gain knowledge from high level decision makers from the Danish Ministry of Defence, the armed forces, and a wide range of professional defence industry companies.


In 2021 the headlines of the conference are:

Future defence: Denmark’s role in a changing defence environment

How to strengthen and accelerate defence innovation through cooperation between the industry, the knowledge institutions and authorities

Capabilities, doctrine and procurement


Within the next few months, the conference site will be launched and you will be able to purchase tickets and sponsorships. You can get insights into the prices below:
