Armoured Vehicles: The region's premier meeting ground for all elements of the armoured community
Throughout the region, we are seeing a continued interest in the renewal and modernisation of the armoured fleet. The armoured community continues to upgrade older vehicle models, enhance armoured fighting vehicle capability, and procure new platforms to defend critical interests against aggressive non-state actors. Contingency operations in recent years have reinforced capability gaps and the need to enhance existing combat architecture of the land forces. In order to retain high readiness to respond to low-intensity conflicts, the Middle East requires further upgrades in vehicle protection, lethality, and manoeuvrability for operations different terrain.
Tailored to the challenges and acquisition programmes of the region, Armoured Vehicles Middle East provides a strategic forum for the exchange of knowledge on deployment, procurement, and vehicle maintenance - bringing together important regional and global perspectives from armoured divisions, internal security forces, and procurement directorates. The conference will facilitate defence engagement and cooperation around ways to enhance deterrence and reinforce counter-terrorism. It will encourage the deepening of strategic partnerships to advance collective action against existing and emerging asymmetric threats.
