About the Event 

David Peattie,
invites you to

Supply Chain Event 2017

Nuclear Showcase

The NDA Estate Supply Chain Event is organised by the industry for the industry. Last year’s showcase event attracted around 1,600 delegates, providing opportunities to network with more than 280 exhibiting companies. With a particular focus on SMEs, the aim is also to attract new businesses to the nuclear decommissioning sector.

We’re pleased to announce the return of the Innovation Zone at this year’s event. This is a dedicated space for companies who have innovative technical products to display. There is an opportunity for a select number of companies to exhibit in the Innovation Zone and you will be asked during the registration process if you wish to be considered for a space. The Innovation Zone is co-sponsored by the NDA and Innovate UK.


Following on the success of last year’s Skills Zone, this year it is back, bigger and better. For 2017, we will bring together 20 organisation involved with skills for the nuclear industry to offer guidance, advice and one-to-one discussions on skills within the industry. There will also be a number of presentations on a skills related issues, covering acquisition, development and retention of skills for the nuclear industry.  A timetable will be issued closer to the event.
