  • 2. WHAT’S NEW FOR iNTERNATiONAl ARmOURED vEHiClES 2011 CONFERENCE AND ExHiBiTiON 1. NEW ADVISORY PANEL BRINGING OUR MOST IN-DEPTH AGENDA EVER Ouradvisorypanel,comprisedofLieutenantGeneralSirJohnKiszelyandGeneralWilliamScottWallace(ret’d),twooftheworld’s most senior and respected military thinkers have carefully scrutinised and crafted this year’s agenda. Using their immense knowledge of combat experience, strategic planning and force development, they’ve helped us deliver our largest and most experienced panel to date, so that you can learn from the best qualified armoured vehicle experts the world has to offer. 2. FOUR ALL-NEW FOCUS DAYS We’ve taken on board your feedback and developed four new focus days bringing together speakers and themes to explore them like never before. Each of our four days offers you a comprehensive format to explore crucial themes amongst an audience who share your specific interests. So, you can now get even more detail and lessons learned from the military experts who can benefit you most. 3. EXPANDED EXHIBITION WITH MORE ARMOURED VEHICLES The introduction of our exhibition last year was a runaway success so we’re expanding it to include more solution providers, more technology on display, more innovation briefings and perhaps most importantly, more vehicles. Now you can get even better hands-on experience of what the state of technology is in today’s market and explore exciting opportunities for the future. 4. EXTRA OPERATIONAL FEEDBACK TO INFORM YOU WHAT CAPABILTIES MATTER MOST ON COMBAT MISSIONS For several years you’ve been telling us of the importance of operational feedback as part of our conference. Now we’ve dramatically increased the amount of first-hand combat experience included in the conference and focus day sessions. This meansyoucangetanevenbetterinsightintowhattroopsreallyneedonthefrontlineandwhatyoucandotohelpthemhave the best capabilities possible. Key speakers include: Lieutenant Colonel Harry Fullerton, Commanding Officer, Household Cavalry Regiment, British Army Major Peter Els, Officer Commanding, 1st Panzer Battalion, Royal Danish Army 5. LARGEST EVER MILITARY AUDIENCE – OVER 1000 EXPECTED We’re spending more time and effort than ever to increase the size, scope and quality of our military audience. Expanding on our already impressive links to the world’s leading militaries and emerging markets, we’ll bring you hundreds of military professionals to network with. You can hear in person their requirements, their successes, their challenges and the opportunities for you to partner with them for the future. Dear Colleague, The need for protected vehicles is made clear by the daily reports from current operations. As the threat evolves, so too must the capabilities with which we equip our soldiers. But getting the balance right between the capabilities that offer the greatest contribution for today and those that we will need in the future is no easy task. Force development in this environment is a tricky task and presents many challenges for militaries around the world - and for their suppliers. That’s why for the tenth year running, International Armoured Vehicles will offer you the world’s leading conference and exhibition for exploring cutting- edge vehicle programmes and solutions. Leveraging the expertise of the military programme managers, requirements developers, operators and the solution providers, our agenda is at the heart of the global debate about the future of armoured vehicles. With 60 conference sessions, and an audience of over 500 armoured vehicle experts from 46 nations, this is one event I suggest you can’t afford to miss. Together we’ll explore the strategic debate on how to structure our forces, the tactical implications of these decisions and the resulting effects on the design, procurement and sustainment of armoured vehicle capabilities. That means you’ll be equipped with the most up-to-date insights and lessons-learned when it comes to making tough choices of your own. And of course, there’s our growing exhibition which gives you the chance to get hands-on experience of the vehicles and equipment that gives them the edge. So you can see, touch and feel exactly how the technology available will offer you the advantage you need. There’s so much on offer at International Armoured Vehicles 2011. I do hope you’ll join us in London next February for what is sure to be, for armoured vehicles professionals, one of the highlights of the year. Best wishes, Lieutenant General Sir John Kiszely, KCB MC Conference and Advisory Panel Chairman rEGISTEr And PAY bY ThE 22nd oCTobEr 2010 And SAvE uP To £908 7–10 FEBRUARY 2011 EXCEL CENTRE, LONDON UK 5 REASONS TO ATTEND iNTERNATiONAl ARmOURED vEHiClES 2011 1 MEET ARMOURED VEHICLE PROGRAMME MANAGERS AND THEIR DECISION MAKING TEAMS Over the last year we’ve renewed our focus on the core programmes that are to the forefront of innovation and operational performance in the armoured vehicles world. We’ve secured over 20 programme and requirements managers along with their end-users to give you access to the full decision making team. Meaning you can benefit from even more programme management experience and meet even better potential customers. Programmes include US Army’s Stryker and M-ATV, Sweden’s new 8x8, the German Dutch Boxer, the Austrian ASCOD, and Canada’s LAV III. 2 LEVERAGE THE EXPERIENCE OF OVER 60 MILITARY SPEAKERS GIVING YOU ACCESS TO THE LATEST IN THEATRE AND OPERATIONAL CASE STUDIES Responding to the feedback of our previous delegates, we’ve worked with our advisory panel - Lieutenant General Sir John Kiszely and General William Scott Wallace (ret’d), to ensure our speakers, many of whom are appearing for the first time, are here to offer you more technical detail with a particular focus on key lessons learned. So you can get to the heart of understanding the difficult decisions that must be taken in developing new capabilities and adapt those lessons for your own projects. 3 TEST CURRENT AND FUTURE ARMOURED VEHICLE TECHNOLOGIES AT OUR EXHIBITION Nothing beats being able to see, touch and feel the technology for yourself. That’s why after the sell-out success of last year, we’ve expanded our exhibition this year to include over 150 solution providers with even more armoured vehicles that you can explore up close. 4 NETWORK WITH THE BEST QUALITY AUDIENCE OF ANY ARMOURED VEHICLES EVENT The widest variety of nations, the most senior panel of speakers and the most experienced military audience. We provide you with an unparalleled audience, solely dedicated to armoured vehicles, that gives you an unbeatable opportunity to benchmark your capabilities and offers more potential partnerships for success than anywhere else. Our conference attracts over 600 delegates each year and we’re expecting 3,000 visitors to our exhibition. 5 IN-DEPTH FOCUS DAYS TO GIVE YOU EVEN GREATER LEVELS OF INSIGHT Providing you with a niche EXPERT group, specialising in your specific area of interest, we’ve provided incredibly detailed sessions with the enhanced networking opportunities of a carefully profiled audience. Dedicated to the topics you told us mattered most to you, there are four to choose from, each offering in depth analysis of key issues and areas of capability investment. Countering Improvised Explosive Devices Monday 7th February Through Life Support and Maintenance of Armoured Vehicles Monday 7th February Armoured Vehicle C4ISR Capabilities for Joint Operations Thursday 10th February Combined Arms Training and Simulation Thursday 10th February ExHiBiTiON Launched last year, the International Armoured Vehicles exhibition was a sell-out success and saw over 2,000 visitors join us during the 2 days. The 2011 exhibition will be even bigger with vehicle manufacturers including Force Protection, Hatehof, Iveco Defense Vehicles, Oshkosh Defense and Nexter. Taking place alongside our sector-leading conference, it provides a fully integrated exploration of armoured vehicle capabilities and the operational context in which they must perform. With over 150 exhibitors, this is the largest ever international gathering solely dedicated to the armoured vehicle community, providing a unique location for military delegations from over 46 nations to gain hands-on experience of vehicles and the full range of technology that enables their operational performance. From armaments to situational awareness, protection to mobility, maintenance to communications, the full range of sub systems and components are represented by the world’s most experienced vendors.

With a huge range of combat experience to draw upon and a reputation as one of the US military’s smartest thinkers, this is one session you cannot miss. Main Conference, Morning of Day One 2 DEVELOPING GROUND MANOEUVRE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BRITISH ARMY Major General Bill Moore, Director (Battlespace Manoeuvre)/ Master General of the Ordnance, UK MoD Looking to the future of how to develop our armoured vehicle fleets, the evolution of requirements in response to strategic challenges is a delicate balancing act. That’s why we’re delighted to have Major General Moore share with us his own perspectives on how to equip front line troops mindful of constricted resources. Not just of interest to those seeking business opportunities in the UK, this is the ideal session to hear how a leading military’s senior requirements setter makes tough choices and the rationale behind those decisions. Main Conference, Morning of Day One 3 A STRATEGIC ASSESSMENT OF THE IED THREAT Lieutenant General Tom Metz (Ret’d), Former Director, Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organisation (JIEDDO), US DoD An armoured vehicle warrior by trade, Lieutenant General Metz returned from Command in Iraq to head up JIEDDO, the world’s largest ever effort to counter IEDs. Investing vast sums of money he oversaw the most innovative efforts imaginable to protect soldiers lives and improve survivability. His experience in this field is beyond vast and here he presents his unique and incredibly informed assessment of the IED threat and the role that armoured vehicles have in saving lives and succeeding in our missions. Countering IED Focus Day, Opening Session 4 OPERATIONAL PERSPECTIVES ON IN SERVICE BRITISH ARMY VEHICLE TYPES Lieutenant Colonel Harry Fullerton, Commanding Officer, Household Cavalry Regiment, British Army Commanding one of the most prestigious regiments in the British Army, Lieutenant Colonel Fullerton led his troops on a challenging deployment with ISAF. Returning from theatre earlier this year, he’d bolstered his already considerable experience with a Commander’s knowledge of what it means to utilise multiple armoured vehicle types in combat and what capabilities matter most to ensure missions success. Here he shares his hard-won lessons learned so that you know exactly what technology and tactics make a difference on the front line. Main Conference, Afternoon of Day One 5 ASSESSING THE SURVIVABILITY OF VEHICLES TO WITHSTAND CURRENT THREATS: THE ISRAELI EXPERIENCE Lieutenant Colonel Oren Giber, Head of Survivability, Land Systems Division, Israeli MoD Charged with improving the survivability of vehicles for an army that is constantly at risk from direct fire and IED threats, Lieutenant Colonel Giber has been exploring technologies to protect vehicles and troops that will be tested under the toughest conditions. He’ll be sharing his experience with you to show how one of the world’s most combat experienced forces selects systems to protect vehicles and troops and exploring the potential for partnership in future survivability projects.
