Five people have been arrested in a protest attempting to blockade a Defence Industry and National Security Forum in Wellington.

Groups protesting claim the event is a weapons trade expo hosting companies like Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics.

The New Zealand Defence Industry Association disputes the claim and says 500 delegates from over 150 organisations will be meeting for the benefit of the country's national security.
