DEFSEC Atlantic 2024



Academic Showcase

The Ballroom Level is a new addition to the event’s footprint over the last two years and allows us to offer a much enhanced layout to support this year’s event. The level includes a space for displays in the newly added Academic Showcase. Booths in this space are limited to academic institutions, training programs and related agencies.

This portion of our Exhibition creates a space where our attendees from industry, government, and the military can meet exhibitors to show what they do and offer the chance for discussions on future collaboration.

As well, we are piloting a project where groups of local Grade 12 students will be able to visit ONLY the Academic Showcase on Wednesday in a guided fashion to see and learn about the post-secondary programs available that can lead to career paths in our industry.

If you would like to book one of these booths, be sure to contact Colin Stephenson by e-mail at or by phone at +1 (902) 223-2099.
