International tradeshows


Attending an international tradeshow or mission with Team Defence Australia (TDA) is a cost-effective way for your company to:

  • export its products and services
  • benchmark itself internationally
  • research its competitors

Participate in international events

If your company is export-ready, you can submit an expression of interest to participate in an upcoming tradeshow or mission with TDA.

TDA selects companies based on their product offering and proven track record in the focus area of each event. Companies participating in TDA activities have had success directly through sales, increase in international contacts and networks, introduction to key international decision-makers and enhanced international profile.

TDA events are organised by the Australian Defence Export Office in conjunction with the CDIC and Austrade, coordinated with state and territory governments and supported by defence prime companies.

Prepare for an event


We provide training and mentoring options in the lead up to an event, such as presentation skills training, perfecting the quad chart (a key marketing tool used around the world to articulate your company’s value proposition) and cultural awareness training.

To be considered for a TDA event, you will need to show written advice that your proposed exports comply with Australia’s Defence Export Controls.
