Past event: Land Forces Training Summit 2024

Join us at this year's Land Forces Training summit as we delve into the evolving landscape of land forces training amid increased desire for effective collaboration with allied armed forces. Together with our esteemed partners at Team Orlando, we will explore the complexities, challenges, and advances that shape the future of military training.
From cutting-edge simulated environments utilizing virtual reality and augmented reality, to innovative live training approaches, we will be covering a wide range of training tools and technologies. Interoperability, a crucial aspect of countering potential threats, will be a focal point of our discussions, as we seek to understand how standards can be applied and shared among allied nations.

Our summit aims to shed light on the efforts made by nations around the world in conducting live exercises to align their armed forces and strengthen the bonds between allied nations. Additionally, we will explore how simulated training could potentially offer a viable alternative and examine other strategies to synchronize training methods among our allies.
As a highlight of the event, attendees will have the unique opportunity to visit Team Orlando's headquarters at the Central Florida Tech Grove. Experience firsthand some of the latest and most advanced training technologies that promise to revolutionize the way we prepare our forces for future challenges.
