Annual SMI Reception & Buffet Luncheon for Foreign Naval Attaches and Advisers

SMI logo small (c2)

Tuesday 25 June 2019
On Board HQS Wellington | Victoria Embankment | London | WC2R 2PN


The event will be held on board HQS Wellington which is the livery hall and prestigious home of The Honourable Company of Master Mariners. The ship, with its elegant Court Room between decks, is moored on the Thames in central London. The date and time are set for Tuesday 25 June 2019 at 1215.

This is a well-established opportunity to meet and lunch with the official naval representatives from potential customer countries. It is also a good occasion to network with representatives from the Ministry of Defence and the Defence Industry as the event is also open to non-SMI members. More than one representative from each company will be most welcome.


The reception will be held, weather permitting, on the quarter-deck and will be followed by a buffet luncheon in the Court Room. This will allow everyone to circulate freely and meet the various attachés and advisers as much as possible. Luncheon will begin on completion of the reception at about 1300 and should be over by about 1500

A list of attachés and advisers invited to the event is attached within the booking form. A further list of attachés and advisers who have accepted the invitation, together with a list of defence industry persons attending will be available on the day.
