What's New for IAVs 2012?

For 2012, we've taken the most successful aspects of our previous events, and have built on them to create a powerful programme that is both quality-driven and customisable to your needs. We have re-focused central themes, bulked up with an international speaker faculty, and have moved the event to Farnborough.

Here is a snapshot of the new features you can look forward to:

  • Most Prestigious Speaker Faculty to Date
  • G6 Industry Leaders Panel: Global Strategy Debate
  • Interactive Solution Zone
  • Dedicated Round Table Discussions
  • Improved Networking Capabilities
  • Direct Product Feedback
  • New Venue

Most Prestigious Speaker Faculty to Date

Over the years, the International Armoured Vehicles show has highlighted some of the most prominent figures in the defence industry. For 2012, the Defence IQ team is proud to announce our most senior-level speaker line-up ever, which includes 50+ Generals, Brigadiers, Commanders and Lieutenant Commanders from global militaries.

G6 Industry Leaders Panel: Global Strategy Debate

With the last of the troops in Afghanistan set to leave by 2014, the question remains: What is the future of Armoured Vehicles? Defence IQ has gathered 6 visionaries from leading defence industry companies such as BAE Systems, Nexter and Force Protection, to first debate and then set the future direction of the market. Hear firsthand where these thought leaders see the biggest trends.

Interactive Solution Zone

With the event moving to the FIVE in Farnborough for 2012, now is your chance to book your position within the Solution Zone, a new take on a traditional exhibition hall. With interactivity being the prime focus this coming year, we’ve designed the Solution Zone to enhance vehicle displays and product demonstrations in order to draw visitors from stand to stand. Whether you’re a prime contractor, or a supplier, this is the perfect platform to increase face-time with your potential clients, whilst showing them firsthand your offerings.

Dedicated Round Table Discussions

Providing you with more opportunity than ever before to shape the debate, our Round-Table Discussion days give you the freedom to circulate between tables, engaging in whichever discussion and with whichever representatives are most suited to solving your challenges.

Improved Networking Capabilities

Meet with those key military representatives and programme managers who are your top priority:

  • Private Meeting Areas - for more sensitive “off-line” discussions or meetings
  • Speed Networking Sessions - meet with a wider breadth of military, industry and R&D representatives, and put a face to the name of the key players you're looking to meet
  • SpotMe Devices - a great instant messaging and G.P.S. tool allowing you to arrange meetings or locate key delegates across a crowded conference hall or exhibition area.

Direct Product Feedback

Bringing together 5 judging panels, each consisting of senior military, OEMs and R&D representatives, we'll be assessing and considering the leading products in the armoured vehicles market, in categories including:

  • Best Future Vehicle Technology and Capability
  • Best Heavy Vehicle Technology
  • Best Light Weight Vehicle Capability
  • Best Vehicle Innovation Technology
  • Best Product Improvement

New Venue

A key UK centre for large scale events, it's our pleasure to team up with the Farnborough center to provide a level of conference and exhibition previously unseen in our ten years' history.

A short train ride from Heathrow international airport and near the heartland of the British Army, Farnborough provides the easy access needed for both the international and UK military community. A short drive or train ride from some of the top rated UK golf courses, and all of the amenities of central London, find out how you can make the most of your time at IAVs 2012.
