Countering Future Threats And Delivering Fighter Capability Effectively And Affordably

12 November, 2013 - 14 November, 2013, London, United Kingdom

Join us at the 13th Annual International Fighter conference this November 2013! The event returns with a brand-new speaker faculty, a strengthened agenda and more networking opportunities for the Jet Fighter community.

International Fighter has a 13 year long reputation as the fighter community event of the year. This year delegates are gathering to discuss strategic priorities, deliver programme updates, and understand and share common challenges.

With international keynote speakers delivering their vision of the future force including modernisation and upgrade plans from across the globe including; Lieutenant General Anwar Hamad, Commander of the Iraqi Air Force and General Tito Saúl Pinilla Pinilla, Commander of the Colombian Air Force.

What's new for 2013?

  • Industry Panel Discussion – hear the vision that industry holds for the future of the fighter market with senior leadership across sectors
  • “News and Views” session – Independent analysis and global trends in fighter aircraft. Current headline hitting stories and the perception of defence procurement in an age of austerity
  • Commanders’ Forum Panel Discussion – take part in the debate as senior air force leadership put forward their views on force structure, force development and operating in a resource constrained environment
  • With even more dedicated interactive roundtable discussion time than in previous years you can meet the expert sitting next to you and build personal relationships at the most interactive conference to date.

We look forward to seeing you in November.
