The show is not only a place to discover new equipment but also to discuss new ideas. You have a choice of 56 different conferences spread over the four-and-a-half days of the show that cover 12 broad themes from cyber defence to remotely piloted air systems, from nonconventional threats to smart, safe cities.
The conferences are never more than two hours long, are all in English and are freely accessible. The only exception is the ECCO (European Club for Countertrade & Offset) Symposium on 15 and 16 June, for which you must pre-register.
This year, the ECCO Symposium will focus on India.
