Advantage Wollongong's Rob Little is in Adelaide this week with some of the region's key defence businesses, showcasing what Wollongong has to offer in Australia's premier land defence exhibition.

Land Forces 2016 is an exhibition and conference program designed to bring together key industry, defence and government decision-makers from Australia, Asia, the Pacific and around the world.

The Advantage Wollongong exhibit provides an invaluable platform to spread the word about Wollongong's defence capabilities to key stakeholder groups, as well as provide opportunities for local business in the defence space to learn more about the latest industry developments.

The Hon. Anthony Roberts MP Minister for Industry, Resources and Energy acknowledges Wollongong's strong position in defence, particularly after a visit to the Defence Materials Technology Centre at the University of Wollongong in July. 'The time is ripe for more businesses to get on board and benefit from the wealth of opportunities available from defence over the next decade' he said. 'Wollongong has a well-developed and sophisticated innovation ecosystem that ensures it is at the cutting edge of applied research and industry collaboration and this is essential in servicing the defence industry'.
