About International Armoured Vehicles
The annual International Armoured Vehicles Conference (IAVs)
has gained a reputation as the world's premier international meeting ground for all elements of the armoured community. IAVs
has established itself among the world's Armies, Marine Corps, procurement officials, and industry representatives as the unbiased quality forum to focus solely upon land vehicles and force protection.
Since the first in 2001, we've seen the rapid evolution of land power doctrine and technology. 2001 was the start of an extended period of counter-insurgency and counter-terror fighting, leading to the rapid acquisition of armoured vehicles
, innovation in counter-IED technology and the proliferation of unmanned aerial systems. Now, we see the emergence of multi-domain concepts of operation, a reorientation towards high-end peer conflict and the aggressive pursuit of disruptive technologies in AI and Robotics, which are sure to revolutionise and re-energise debate within the land forces community - not least, the armoured vehicles
Now in its 21st year, the conference has helped contribute to the debate around many timely subjects over the years; charting trends in armoured vehicles
, from the rise of the MRAP to the more recent increase in demand for 6x6 and 8x8 wheeled vehicles.
Whether you are a military practitioner, acquisition staffer, decision maker, programme manager, technical expert, industrial supplier or strategic leader, I believe you will all benefit considerably from attending IAVs
and look forward to welcoming you to Twickenham early next year.
