Past event: Air Land Integration Conference

The Air Land Integration Conference will be held in Swindon, United Kingdom on the 7th & 8th September 2022.

The ALI conference aims to examine the synergistic employment of lethal and non-lethal effects by Air and Land forces to meet a Commander's intent and provide a forum for best practice. The conference will be run in cooperation with the Joint Air Liaison Organisation at RAF Air Command and chaired by Col Bill Bolam OBE, Commander JALO. The conference will be attended by military, government and industry personnel involved with relevant programmes and will hear from a range of international speakers about national and multinational efforts in this area.

The conference will share operational experiences and future strategies from militaries across Europe, North America and Middle East.
