Amphibious Operations Conference
Rediscovering Global Amphibious Capabilities

19 November, 2013 - 21 November, 2013, London, United Kingdom

Project - Support - Assist

Marine forces are always looking for ways to enhance tactical mobility and rapid enhancement of fast interceptor boats has presented a great leap forward. However, the need for multinational interoperability and humanitarian capabilities are essential areas that are only just starting to be explored in sufficient depth. Amphibious Operations 2013 will present cutting edge strategic and tactical developments and the perfect forum to understand what is required to be at the forefront of modern amphibious capabilities.

Amphibious Operations 2013 is the only conference to give a truly global perspective, looking to Africa, South America and the Pacific Rim.

Amphibious Operations 2013 Will Enable You To:

  • Understand more about the emerging amphibious requirements around the world with high-ranking briefings from a broad range of international powers including Mexico, Nigeria, The Philippines, Thailand and many more
  • Learn about the current amphibious objectives of the major military powers in the face of the imminent withdrawal of ISAF forces from Afghanistan
  • Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the UK Netherlands Amphibious Force
  • Assess the latest developments in amphibious platforms and supporting technology, such as the new Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV) to be delivered to the USMC and initial feedback on the fast raiding interception and special forces craft (FRISC) for the Netherlands Marine Corps
  • Network face-to-face with military and industry contacts in an intimate environment that crowded trade shows cannot deliver
