The arms traders

"We just print forms for the people who...

DSEi, the "Defence Systems and Equipment international" conference and exhibition, is organised by Spearhead Exhibitions - which announced on 9 September 2003 that it had been bought by Reed Exhibitions, which in turn announced on 00 April 2007 that it was getting out of the arms fair business, after the 2007 show.

"...order bullets for the people who...

The sponsors/supporters of DSEi 01/03/05/07 were/are:

British Naval Equipment Association 01030507 Trade association of warship builders and other naval suppliers
Defence Manufacturers Association 01030507 Ditto, all UK military suppliers

UK Ministry of Defence 01030507Your tax Euro at work.
All other government departments have addresses. seems to be heading for autonomy.

"...shoot people."

As quick a look at the exhibitors at DSEi shows, many are in apparently mundane trades. But, firstly, the list of exhibitors suggests what a wide range of the economy is tied up with dealing death; and, secondly, selling the wire that connects the computer in a plane to the bomb-release definitely has something to do with the corpses that result.

Connoisseurs will find the notes on compliance with UK law interesting, and the conference and workshops.

The exhibitors

Updated 21 August 2007

Do check out information here before relying on it for a public statement. This is only a sampling of the probable actual identities of a random sample of the exhibitors.

Indications of what country a company is from are mostly from the DSEi list, except where it's blatantly wrong. US companies in particular seem to be keen on registering from their UK branch office.

In doing your own research, you may find the corporate directories, and rather useful; and the Defence Manufacturers Association. And do let us know what you find.
