Undersea Defence Technology (UDT) 2018, the principal conference and exhibition for the underwater defence and security community and Babcock International, the highly- skilled engineering company have announced a unique opportunity for small businesses to showcase their latest innovations at the UDT event in Glasgow in June.
The Babcock Innovation Zone, a bespoke exhibition space, will be available for start - ups and small businesses to promote their contemporary technologies, innovations and industry solutions at the international event and interested parties are being asked to get in touch.
Babcock through a common interest with UDT, is providing a platform into the undersea defence market for pioneering industry contributors. The Babcock Innovation Zone is the ideal platform for collaborations from business and academia working on the latest technology, or small companies with a new product or service, to present their bespoke solutions to the enterprise.
The organisers are looking to provide a stage for systems integrators, service providers and small enterprises in a way that has not been done before. At the heart of the Babcock Innovation Zone is an ethos to allow the smallest of companies into a uniquely competitive market – where many innovative and cutting-edge solutions can be difficult to uncover otherwise.
The UDT 2018 Event Manager, Tuhin Quddus, said:
“UDT is a brand that always looks to support potential growth areas within the underwater community. Through our partnership with Babcock, we’re striving to encourage smaller businesses to showcase their work, influence and ambitions within subsea defence.
“Subsea terrain is harsh, unpredictable and constantly changing, highlighting the continual need to innovate. By attracting new businesses that have never previously had the opportunity to exhibit, we look forward to seeing what is showcased in the Babcock Innovation Zone.”
Babcock possesses a long history in the design, build, assembly and support of naval and commercial platforms and equipment, including submarines and surface ships, and continues to demonstrate a unique understanding of defence requirements and the wider community. The Babcock Innovation Zone will be present throughout UDT 2018 from 26-28 June 2018.
Jon Hall, Managing Director, Technology Babcock said: “Technology and innovation is at the heart of our business and underpins everything that we do. It drives our people to deliver the best solutions for our customers day after day. The Babcock Innovation Zone will provide a platform for UK and International supply chain companies to demonstrate the ingenuity that we see emerging from small businesses. We are pleased to partner with UDT Global and look forward to the Babcock Innovation Zone enthusing and enthralling delegates in equal measure.”
