Canberra is home to influencers and thought leaders driving innovation, knowledge and research nationally and globally in a range of key sectors.
Canberra enjoys an established defence industry network and is the best place in Australia to connect with defence and security experts. No other city in Australia boasts the same proximity to decision makers, procuring agencies and government infrastructure.
As the home of the Department of Defence, key national security, intelligence and border protection agencies, law enforcement, key global defence companies, and Australian Federal Government, Canberra is at the forefront of innovation and is Australia’s major defence partner.
Important defence training and industry bodies are located here, including the historic Royal Military College at Duntroon, the Australian Defence Force Academy and the Australian Command and Staff College, as well as the Australian Industry and Defence Network.
