Future Armoured Vehicles Eastern Europe 2015 Conference

As nations in Eastern Europe embark on upgrading their military capabilities and increase spending, the Armoured Vehicle has become a focus of many of the land forces commands wishing to ensure effective combat and peacekeeping operations, both domestically and internationally.

Due to this unprecedented increase in strategy and acquisition in the region, we are delighted to bring you Future Armoured Vehicles Eastern Europe 2015. It is our focus to ensure you meet the very best military decision makers and influencers as we gather the community next June in Prague. At no other event in 2015 will you be able to meet such a well rounded and unique set of military vehicle experts all present with one goal in mind-to advance their technical know how and increase the effectiveness of their new and ongoing programmes.

The participants of Future Armoured Vehicles Eastern Europe 2015 will cover the whole value chain of the armoured vehicle equipment market. The speakers and invited participants will be carefully selected to bring together those with active requirements for armoured vehicles and will ensure that as well as military leaders, the OEMS and prime contractors participate. We will also make sure that the very latest technology innovators will be present to share their ground breaking equipment with a captive audience all looking to advance their combat vehicle programmes.
