About Us

Land Defence Australia Limited is a member of the not-for-profit group headed by the Aerospace Maritime and Defence Foundation of Australia Limited, or AMDFA.

AMDFA’s vision is for Australia to be strongly positioned at the forefront of aviation, aerospace, maritime and defence affairs in the Asia Pacific region. Its corporate purpose is to promote the development of Australian industrial, manufacturing and information/communications technology resources in the aviation, aerospace, maritime and defence sectors.

In the defence sector Land Defence Australia Limited helps to achieve this principally through the staging of the biennial Land Defence Exposition which in 2014 will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

An exciting newcomer on the international aviation, aerospace and defence industry calendar, this event was established with the blessing of the Chief of the Australian Army. It showcases Australian capabilities, resources and technologies to the nation and to the world. It provides forums for the exchange of ideas and information, sustains industry by fostering education, training and recruitment, stimulates Australian enterprise and innovation, facilitates national and international contacts and networks, expands markets and business opportunities for Australian industry and showcases the Australian defence industry’s achievements and capabilities.

AMDFA has also established a Careers & Skills Forum to help promote career opportunities in the Aerospace, Defence, Maritime and Aviation industries to secondary and tertiary level students and help these sectors inspire and attract high-quality recruits into the future.

The Careers & Skills Forum conducts information forums at all of the Group’s major expositions and at other stand-alone events in throughout Australia.

Like the other members of the AMDFA Group, Land Defence Australia Limited also works with fellow not-for-profit organisations, industry associations, the Australian Defence Force and Government agencies in cooperative partnerships to foster the development of Australian resources and capabilities.
