Our 16th Annual Military Airlift & Rapid Reaction Operations 2015 will be held on 1st - 2nd December 2015 in Seville, Spain. Since NATO has departed from Afghanistan there is now a change in focus for the air forces and an opportunity for strategic future planning.

The conference will provide updates on national systems, operations and future requirements as well as the growth in sharing and pooling of assets to satisfy national and regional requirements. These topics will be addressed by the major militaries and the multinational commands and whilst the focus is mainly on airlift for military operations, there is also section dedicated to military airlift in humanitarian responses.

In keeping with our commitment to keep the event venue in the most relevant location, we have chosen to have this year's conference in Seville. We also have the pleasure of being invited to an exclusive site visit at Airbus Military facility where we will be shown the latest range of capability.
