Future Artillery 2017 Conference

Taking Firepower Forward: The world's most popular and influential joint fires conference

The global artillery market between now and 2025 is expected to increase by approximately 40% to US$5.2 billion. Understandably so, given that over the last decade, artillery has re-established itself as an indispensable tactical instrument, vital for both self-defence and expeditionary warfare.

The war against Daesh has seen the increased importance of artillery to contemporary joint fires operations. In the Donbass region, Ukraine faces an enemy with a modern and fully-integrated joint fires capability - underpinned by emerging technologies such as UAVs and superior communication systems.

A reaction from the Western world is required so that we can ensure that our joint fires capability is competitive and ready to face the modern threat.

We are preparing to welcome over 200 delegates from more than 25 different nations at the 2017 meeting - and will once again return to the Honourable Artillery Company for our annual Gala Dinner.

The 14th annual Future Artillery conference will take place on 22-24 May, London, England.

Highlights of Future Artillery 2017:

  • Benefit from a series of case studies examining the use of Medium Weight Artillery
  • Study the various solutions currently available to mechanise and mobilise systems, in order to render your fire support more flexible capability
  • Engage with the vibrant and diverse international community of artillery commanders in order to learn how they intend to satisfy operational requirements in the short and medium term
  • Network with foreign artillery counterparts and industry thought leaders, to harness a global pool of knowledge and experience, in order to develop your own capabilities and joint fires doctrine
