Babcock supporting small businesses with Innovation Zone

Posted 19 March 2018 · Add Comment

Babcock International is offering start–ups and small businesses the unique opportunity to showcase their latest innovations in the Babcock Innovation Zone at the Undersea Defence Technology (UDT) conference and exhibition in Glasgow, 26-28 June 2018.



The Babcock Innovation Zone, a bespoke exhibition space, will be available for enterprising businesses to promote their contemporary technologies, innovations and industry solutions at the international event and interested parties are being asked to register their interest in participating.

Babcock, through a common interest with UDT, is providing a platform into the undersea defence market for pioneering industry contributors. The Babcock Innovation Zone is the ideal platform for collaborations from business and academia working on the latest technology, or small companies with a new product or service, to present their bespoke solutions to delegates.

The organisers are looking to provide a stage for systems integrators, service providers and small enterprises in a way that has not been done before. At the heart of the Babcock Innovation Zone is an ethos to allow the smallest of companies into a uniquely competitive market – where many innovative and cutting-edge solutions can be difficult to uncover otherwise.

Jon Hall, Managing Director of Technology at Babcock said: “We are looking for both UK and International businesses to get in touch and join us at the Babcock Innovation Zone. Technology and innovation is at the heart of Babcock’s business and underpins everything that we do. We are providing a platform for UK and International companies to demonstrate the ingenuity that we see emerging from small businesses. We are pleased to partner with UDT Global and look forward to enthusing and enthralling delegates in equal measure through this unique opportunity.”

Babcock possesses a long history in the design, build, assembly and support of naval and commercial platforms and equipment, including submarines and surface ships, and continues to demonstrate a unique understanding of defence requirements and the wider community. The Babcock Innovation Zone will be present throughout UDT 2018 from 26-28 June 2018.
