New! Exclusive Tour of the Gowind L'Adroit OPV and FREMM L'Aquitaine Frigate with DCNS and the French Navy - October 17
Defence IQ is proud to announce a special tour of the L'Adroit OPV and L'Aquitaine frigate with DCNS and the French Navy- exclusive to all OPV conference delegates. View 2013 Programme now.
The global naval vessels and surface combatants market has an estimated value of US$28.9 billion in the year 2013. Defence IQ's Offshore Patrol Vessels conference gives you the delegate, unrivaled access to international requirements, plans and policy, procurement and operational military staff that operate within the most dynamic sector of this market- OPV programmes.
The proven annual deliverable of this event has been to assure the opportunity to meet face-to-face with these stakeholders from the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. In 2012, we welcomed senior officers to speak from as far afield as Nigeria, Mexico, Thailand, Peru and the UAE, to deliver exclusive requirements and capability focused presentations to our audience. Our outreach is what maintains our unmatched credibility within the community and we continue to source the most up-to-date and relevant programmes and topics in preparation for 2013...
This year, we are providing this access against the backdrop of Toulon Naval Base in the South of France where you will also be invited to board the French Navy's L'Adroit OPV and the L'Aquitaine frigate in an unprecedented opportunity to assess and to benchmark your own solutions against these advanced platforms and their onboard systems. In the meantime, our military and coast guard partners will be able to exchange knowledge, best practice and operational feedback with their peers throughout a series of streams, focus days, workshops and networking periods.
We look forward to meeting you in October!
