Our Helicopter Technology Central and Eastern Europe 2022 conference is returning for its seventh successful year on the 18th - 19th May 2022 as a live and in person event in Budapest. As the only conference specialising on rotary systems in the Central and Eastern Europe, this will be a unique opportunity to network with numerous leading Air Force and Helicopter Programme Managers.

Unlike other events, this conference is a meeting for the military helicopter community across Central and Eastern Europe with a focus on the selection and procurement of new platforms and systems as a means of securing strategic success, whilst putting in place the necessary mechanisms for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of existing legacy platforms. This is the only event that provides a regional focus on Eastern European nations seeking to develop and modernise their fleets, along with NATO and international partners seeking strategic insights into cooperation and interoperability across the region.
