RUSI Founded by the Duke of Wellington in 1831, the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies (RUSI) aims to work on the cutting edge of defence and security studies. Our purpose is to analyse, stimulate debate and identify options for all issues of national and international defence and security. We have a British perspective but a global scope.
We are a membership organisation, independent of Government, which organises events, from large conferences to small personal meetings. We undertake a wide range of research from major projects to smaller contracts, using our three research departments which cover International Security Studies, the Military Sciences and Homeland Security and Resilience. We produce a number of general and expert publications in the defence and security fields. For further information please visit www.rusi.org
DEFENCE EVENT MANAGEMENT: The Defence Conference Company DEM has been operating in the field of defence conferences and bespoke events for over nine years, and has grown on the back of conferences which are repeated year-on-year, showing a very high degree of delegate and speaker satisfaction. The DEM principle is to achieve best value for industry, and best effect for the military of many different countries. This is achieved by maximising the military presentations, especially from crucial decision makers, thus guaranteeing attendance from industry and other organisations. DEM’s links into the top echelons of the UK, USA, and
European MoDs and associated bodies (export and procurement agencies as examples) are unmatched in any other conference company. Behind these flagship events are a range of smaller, bespoke events which DEM has been pioneering. These are arranged to meet more specialised demands of specific companies, organisations and regiments in various countries. These are arranged to match some demanding specifications as to the desired outcome of the conferences or seminars. In this manner, they are a very different beast from larger commercial conferences.
