This year Hellios has been meeting and talking to more suppliers than ever before. We attended a number of supplier events hosted by Buyers, including NATS & BAE Systems’ Supplier Conference.

It’s always a great opportunity to meet suppliers and buyers and to evidence how Buyers are using the essential data in JOSCAR as part of their due diligence and sourcing activities. It’s also a great opportunity to listen to suppliers and fully understand how the system can best improve and better suit their requirements.

In September, Hellios were able to showcase JOSCAR at DSEI in London. We were delighted to invite buyers and suppliers from the community to our stand.  The stand had a steady stream of visitors including buyers from the Ministry of Defence, Prime Contractors and a large number of suppliers.

The JOSCAR team, headed by Sector Manager Tom Maund, took the opportunity to meet suppliers at their stands and recognise their efforts by presenting suppliers their JOSCAR Accredited certificates. Stephen Rose from NATS attended and did a superb job of presenting certificates and discussing with suppliers how NATS use JOSCAR.

It’s always a delight to meet and talk with suppliers face to face and were already looking forward to DSEI 2021!

Forthcoming Events

At Hellios we feel it is vital that we are approachable, and to that end we have already signed up to exhibit at DPRTE on the 1st April 2020 and Farnborough Airshow July 2020.

DPRTE will be held in Farnborough and is a Defence Procurement Research Technology & Exportability event. This one-day event will see Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP, Ministry of Defence Procurement speaking. This should prove to be an exciting day with lots of interesting speakers and Exhibitor’s.

We are also attending Farnborough Air Show July 2020 and are discussing further exhibitions, supplier events and presentations.
