  • 5. 6 Key Reasons To Sponsor Maintain your Existing Client Base and Enter Emerging Markets All In One Place 1 As a UK based event, were proud to provide the best possible service that we can to the UK MoD and British Forces. As the largest dedicated event for the global armoured vehicle community, however, we also pride ourselves on gathering together key decision makers from across the world to discuss the advances being made by a broad spectrum of international forces. In doing so, we provide you with the opportunity to reinforce your existing relationships with UK and European forces, as well as showing your successes to the wider international community without having to break the budget in going to an overseas trade fair. Launch New Products or Services 2 International Armoured Vehicles has always provided the perfect forum to launch and promote the latest products or systems. With the most senior figures from the industry in attendance, plus carefully selected media partners and press at the event, innovative new technology will always generate a buzz. In bringing together specific decision makers from the armoured vehicle community as well as the key programme managers deciding on specific requirements, all of whom have strong business reasons for attending the event, we can ensure a much greater impact for your new product and a higher conversion rate for investment. Position your Company Brand and Demonstrate your Thought Leadership to the Community 3 International Armoured Vehicles has a strong tradition of showcasing products and thought leading presentations from the key service providers in the sector. Through an integrated mixture of exhibition stands, branding and/or presentations, youre able get across your message in the most effect way possible. Indeed, with a mix of presentations, panel discussions and exhibitions already confirmed from decision makers and thought leaders in major companies including Renault Trucks, Saab, Beth El, RUAG, Force Protection, BAE, Thales, OshKosh, Nexter, Fedders Lloyd, and Barco, youll be in good company! BRAND NEW! Focus Day and Topic Streams Chairing Opportunities 4 Theres nothing more central to an event than its chairmen. This year, as the sponsor of one of our specific focus days or topic streams youll immediately become the leading event representative in the field (be it C4ISR, Training and Simulation, Armouring, Through Life Support etc). As well as providing the opening introduction for the days proceedings, youll have the opportunity to kick off Q&A discussions after presentations with a tailored question, and most importantly keep in close contact with our leading speakers in order to discuss and shape the days proceedings. BRAND NEW! Enjoy Our Exclusive Pre-Conference Ice Breaker 5 We know how hard can be to take advantage of networking opportunities at events: by the first break youve met a few interesting people, by lunch youre putting faces to the names of the key delegates you want to meet, and by the time you get to talk with them its the end of the day. Our Pre-Conference Ice-Breaker solves this issue, bringing together our senior delegates and sponsors for a few drinks and a few rounds of golf on our specially installed indoor golf simulator on the evening before the Main Conference, so that you can build the contacts you need ready for that all important first day of the conference. Experience The Dual Benefits of an Integrated Conference and Exhibition 6 We know what its like seeing stand after stand of products, or trying to showcase your technology to a large crowd. So often a ground-breaking innovation or that vital sense of urgency to find new solutions is forgotten as exhibition fatigue sets in. At International Armoured Vehicles we believe the solution is in "targeted viewing": using our conference and Innovation Stage as a means to define the urgent operational and market requirements, and then allowing our senior military, industry and R&D representatives to assess a tailored range of solutions to these requirements in the exhibition space.
