Sensors Expo & Conference 2010



Armoured Vehicles Asia


Armoured Vehicles Europe


Armoured Vehicles Asia
12-13th October 2010
Singapore Expo, Singapore



The conference addresses thegrowing marketing in Asian economies, which are predicted to account for the lion's share of global economic growth over the next decade. Discussions focus on Asian markets, such as Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, Indonesia, India, Pakistan and China, where the main opportunities for foreign companies are in forming joint ventures with local firms for supply and technology transfer. Agenda highlights include discussions on the Current and Future Outlook of the Light Armoured Division, the Capabilities of Asian Industries in the Armoured Vehicles Market, the Future Role of Armoured Vehicles, Land Forces Operations and Defence Procurement Policy and Armoured Vehicles Requirements.


Armoured Vehicles Eastern Europe
2-3rd September 2010
Krakow Convention Centre, Poland


This conference focuses on the specific requirements and procurement challenges facing the Eastern and Central European, Baltic and Balkan markets. Leveraging our sector leading expertise with the armoured vehicles community, this event will enable both customers and suppliers to the region to explore requirements and procurement challenges and maximize the capability of existing or planned vehicles fleets. Several case studies will show how regional militaries have optimized their budget through the exploration of vehicle projects, partnering/contracting arrangements, offset solutions and indigenous industrial capacity improvement. Early confirmed speakers include members from the Lithuanian Armed Forces, US Army Armor Center, Fort Knox, Military Technical Institute of Technology (VTUO), Czech Republic,Indian Army Headquarters, and Copenhagen Sensor Technology.
