Past event: Armoured Vehicles Eastern Europe 2022 Conference

Enhancing Armoured Capability on NATO's Eastern Flank

Poland has, after the US, also been the largest donor of weapons to Ukraine this year, including the donation of over 240 T-72 tanks. This has been matched with an aggressive modernization programme backed by a defence budget of 3% of GDP.

As nations donate former Soviet equipment to Ukraine, they are replacing them with more modern NATO equipment simultaneously enhancing the strength and interoperability of the Alliance to help further deter Russian aggression.

Armoured Vehicles Eastern Europe provides a forum for key decision-makers, international partners, users, and industry with a unique opportunity to work together and share knowledge on all aspects of armoured vehicle deployment, procurement, cooperation, and sustainment.

This conference represents an opportunity for suppliers of modern military equipment to contribute to a step-change in capability for NATO Allies in the region as their replacement of former soviet equipment is rapidly accelerated.

We hope you can join us in Warsaw from 27-28 September 2022!
