PRESS RELEASE: for immediate publication 11 October 2010
Military engineering community meeting in Brussels in January
Over 250 high level government, military and industry engineering experts are meeting in Brussels in January for the largest conference of its kind with top representatives attending from more than 40 countries including Czech Republic, Belgium, UK, USA, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Canada, Slovakia, Australia, Norway, Switzerland, Germany and Sweden.
The 2nd annual Military Engineering conference and exhibition will bring together even more decision makers, influencers and those at the forefront of current operations to give crucial feedback and lessons learned direct from the front line.
According to Military Engineering programme director, Robert Kerby: “Never before have military engineers needed to take on such a wide range of tasks. Recent stabilisation and humanitarian operations from Haiti and Pakistan to combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have proved that military engineers remain the central pillar to any operation - no matter what the required outcomes.”
