Advancing defence training through technology

Advancing defence training through technology

You can now register to join us at IT²EC 2024 - a three day defence training technology exhibition and technical conference in ExCeL, London from 9-11 April 2024.

The conference and exhibition for technological advancements in military training

The International Training Technology Exhibition and Conference is Europe’s largest dedicated event for Defence training. Featuring an exciting mix of cutting-edge R&D in military simulation and training technology, and non-traditional case studies from the likes of the gaming and first responder industries, IT²EC is essential for those involved in this rapidly evolving industry.

For 2024, we are delighted to be returning to ExCeL, London, from 9-11 April to host our largest event to-date.  Following the success of our 2023 edition, we are working with the UK Ministry of Defence to showcase the very latest approaches, and explore new opportunities with more international delegations than ever before.
