Future Artillery conference to welcome leading artillery personnel and industry figures

27 February 2014

The 11th annual Future Artillery conference is set to commence in just six weeks on the 24-26 March 2014 at the Kensington Close hotel in London, welcoming two hundred leading artillery personnel and industry figures spanning over thirty countries.

Recognised as “the” annual artillery meeting and widely regarded as the most influential indirect fires conference in the world, Future Artillery seeks to provide multiple international perspectives and updates from senior military and industry figures.

With the withdrawal from Afghanistan at the front of the public eye, the conference draws on experiences and lessons taken from Afghanistan and provides an opportunity to scan for future operating scenarios at a time when militaries around the world are restructuring in the face of changing future scenarios and financial restraints. Attendees will also benefit from the latest developments from South Korea’s artillery research and development teams and key presentations from Royal Artillery and DE&S on the continuation of training and joint fires integration.
