Our History

Established in 2001, Defence IQ has grown to become the world’s largest digital defence content and events platform. We are uniquely positioned to engage with and support the international defence community via our digital platforms and global conferences, all of which are underpinned by rigorous, objective analyses of the policies, procurements and technologies related to the air, land, sea, space and cyber domains.

Our Mission

Our mission has always been to provide end users and industry with the opportunity to inform and educate each other about new technology, procurement, and policy in defence. We enable them to share their views and reflect on the critical challenges and threats we face. We inspire them to strengthen connections with their peers around the world.

We do this by collaborating with serving and retired military personnel, academics and defence industry, who provide us with unique insight into the most critical global defence issues and help us to generate thoughtful debate about the future of our industry. Our globally recognised conferences and range of news articles, opinion pieces, market reports and podcasts offer our membership of over 130,000 defence professionals a valued source of intelligence and analysis in a market that is constantly being disrupted.
