On 23-24 May this year the inaugural London Defence Conference takes place at King’s College London in partnership with the School of Security Studies.

This is a new, annual, international gathering of representatives, policymakers and experts from friendly countries. In keynote speeches and panels the big questions will be addressed, on geopolitics, defence, security and technology, generating the exchange of ideas and insights that are vital if we are to navigate successfully this fast-changing and increasingly dangerous world.

The London Defence Conference is chaired by Lord Salisbury and run by me and our team at Reaction.

Last year, in the wake of the invasion of Ukraine, we hosted with King’s College London the Defence of Europe conference.
