Past event: International Armoured Vehicles Conference

The World's Premier Platform for the Armoured Vehicles Community - Now Online

The largest dedicated conference of its type, it annually brings together defence and industry leaders, with a military cohort comprising force and operational commanders, acquisition officials, requirement-setters, capability development experts and S&T architects. For the first time in 2021, the conference will be hosted online, with new dedicated sessions on amphibious vehicle capability and C4i that speak to critical priorities for the UK, US and its partners across NATO.

IAVs has endured as the essential annual event for the armour community by consistently delivering world-class speakers from both the end-user community and industry partner communities, and by staying ahead of the curve with the technologies and concepts discussed over the duration of the event.
