Full instructions are contained in the How To Join document but key points are:

Please send your submissions back to Chris Gane chris.gane@dcpm.co.uk, copied to Bill Peterson bill.peterson@trade.gov.uk and aerospace@trade.gov.uk by Friday 7th April.

DBT will collate all the submissions, send them to the selected customers in a UK Capability Brochure and ask them to decide which suppliers they wish to meet.  DBT will work with you to set up the meetings either at the DBT meeting room in the UK Pavilion (if you are a visitor to the show) or on your stand (if you are an exhibitor).
