Explosive Ordnance Seminar

May 24-26, 2022- Budva, Montenegro

EOD operations are still taking place across the Balkan states and there is a collective focus on making the region mine free as soon as possible to allow for citizens to live freely without the threat of activating a mine.

Mines are being found in cities, towns, villages, undersea, forests, roadsides and many other areas. This has led to an increase in activities to clear many minefields in the region. However, with the recent global pandemic donors and humanitarian support is becoming harder to find. This has led to an importance in nations sharing lessons learnt and operational challenges they have faced.

Many IGOs and NGOs are working tirelessly to clear the minefields in the region and there is a key importance on international cooperation in making the region mine clear by 2025.

Technology in EOD operations are also evolving with many new solutions being adopted to clear mines to help lower casualties. Solutions such as robotics and drones are now being used to assist with clearing mine sites especially in areas where it is difficult to detect mines.

Our 2021 show attracted around 80 high level officials who represented 21 nations over the 3-day event. You will have the chance to network with the same high-level participants once again in Budva, Montenegro on the 24th - 26th May 2022. The event is officially supported by the Ministry of Interior in Montenegro who will also be conducting a live demonstration on the final day of the event.
