Military Helicopter Brazil
Delivering effective rotary wing capability for internal interdiction and surveillance

29 July, 2013 - 31 July, 2013, Sao Paulo, Brazil

The recent boost in Brazil's defence budget has led to the country redefining the role of its Armed Forces and making major decisions on procurement of new platforms, sub systems and equipment.

These latest operational developments and future plans will be highlighted at Military Helicopter Brazil which will be running from the 29th - 31st July 2013 in São Paulo, Brazil. With over 10 nations sharing their insight on topics ranging from platform acquistion for civil-military operations to armed interdiction for countering smuggling and insurgent activity, Military Helicopter Brazil provides an ideal opportunity to understand the unique challenges facing South American rotary wing commands and the subsequent plans for force modernisation.

Benefits of attending Military Helicopter Brazil:

  • Essential market knowledge gained through interactive discussions of the latest rotary wing acquisiton
  • Lengthy face to face networking opportunities to grow and develop strategic relations
  • Engage with senior military commanders on their capabilities and requirements
  • Explore and collaborate on future modernisation strategies

The conference represents an unrivalled opportunity to not only listen to senior military commanders about the future of their helicopter fleets, but also interact with them on a one-to-one basis. Last year’s event attracted over 150 representatives from 15 different nations, and the 2013 conference is set to unite an even bigger gathering of experts, including those from new nations such as Brazil, Colombia, Uruguay, Italy and Belgium.

Military Helicopter Brazil will be held in English with simultaneous translations in Portuguese and Spanish.
