Welcome to the world’s premier armoured vehicles forum

International Armoured Vehicles is the only event to balance the unique advantages of a superbly attended, high-level conference, large exhibition space, complete with static displays, a comprehensive range of OEM and sub-system suppliers, AND a live test track demonstration area.

  • Join the annual international gathering of armoured mobility experts to develop and share your organisation’s capability, knowledge and business acumen
  • Engage with your customers and clients in conference, at the exhibition and on the test track
  • Explore return to contingency with the community’s thought leaders, policy makers and innovators

‘Return to contingency’ could see a return to the old habits of a costly and often unrealistic Standard Acquisition Process so, in an era of contracting budgets, the pressure is on for industry and the end-user to come together to refine all elements of the process from the requirement, to the development phase, to the trials phase, and all the way through to through-life support and upgrades.

“Some armoured vehicles acquired through Urgent Operational Requirements will be taken into core fleets, but no-one expects these vehicles to offer a long-term solution.”
Internal Audit Office

International Armoured Vehicles 2014 presents itself as the premier forum for doing just this and the 2014 conference programme will develop the return to contingency theme by including some of the foremost speakers from the UK MoD and beyond. Early speaker faculty appointments include Philip Dunne MP, Minister for Defence Equipment, Support and Technology and representatives from Israel, Pakistan, the Netherlands, NATO, Germany, Kenya and Australia who will be on point to discuss the global armoured requirement landscape.

With over 40 international expert speakers, 2500+ exhibition visitors, and huge capacity for live demonstrators, ours is the only event that allows you to place your organisation’s strategy in an academic, technical and operational context simultaneously, thus greatly enhancing your ability to combat today’s armoured challenges.
