On behalf of the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CADSI), I am pleased to welcome you to CANSEC 2019.
Now in its twenty-second year, CANSEC has grown to become the premier event on Canada’s defence and security calendar. Your presence here not only increases your own visibility but helps showcase the overall breadth and diversity of our sector.
You will have the opportunity to network with other CADSI members who could become strong partners, and to engage with government decision-makers who could become your customers, if they are not already.
This year, we are also unveiling an exciting new concept called the Innovation Hub and Cyber Labs. This space will be home to companies working in areas such as cyber defence, robotics, AI, training simulation, advanced manufacturing and more.
Meanwhile, CADSI has been working to improve and expand the tools we offer to our members. You’ll find all these new offerings on myCADSI, our online portal for everything defence and security. In addition to allowing you to register for popular events like CANSEC and CAF Outlooks, myCADSI allows you to highlight your company’s capabilities, take advantage of e-learning modules and gain insight on over three-dozen international markets.
If you are new to CANSEC this year, we welcome your feedback. It's our goal to continue to showcase the full breadth of Canadian defence goods, services and technology, and you can help us find creative ways to make it happen.
I look forward to connecting with you at CANSEC 2019.
President & CEO
