Future Artillery 2016 Conference

The world's most popular and influential joint fires conference

We are delighted to announce that this year's future artillery conference will be taking place in London, to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Royal Artillery's founding in 2016. To coincide with the anniversary, we have shifted the dates of Future Artillery to the 23rd - 24th of May, and will cover a range of key challenges to the global network of artillery commanders and suppliers.

The community is gathering to confront the most pressing issues in the joint fires realm. Artillery is fast re-establishing itself as an indispensable tactical instrument, vital for both self-defence and expeditionary warfare. It is essential that the military users and the universe of suppliers meet for a candid exchange of views, in order to ensure that artillery capabilities are maintained and developed for future operations.

We are preparing to welcome over 180 delegates from more than 25 nations at our 2015 event; Future Artillery truly is the AGM of the artillery world. We hope you can join us in 2016 for in depth discussions on the latest challenges and the future direction of indirect and joint fires.
