Advancing technology through training

Held annually, IT²EC is Europe’s primary forum for representatives from across the military, civil sector, industry and academia to connect and share knowledge about simulation, training and education.

The three-day exhibition and conference gathers a broad selection of the industry’s brightest minds from across Europe and further afield. IT²EC provides an ideal platform for organisations to:

  • showcase evolving product and service solutions
  • monitor competitor and collaborator activities
  • evaluate emerging trends and technologies
  • network with new and existing connections
  • discover and shape future initiatives
More information on planning your visit to Rotterdam will be updated shortly.

The story behind T²

Originally known as ITEC, the event has served the military training community for more than 30 years, witnessing a period of intensive innovation and new product development.

As the event entered its fourth decade, it was the right time for an updated identity which accurately reflects our increasing focus on the technology which underpins current and future training solutions.

So, last year, we made a small but significant change. The event is now known as the International Training Technology Exhibition & Conference (IT²EC). 

Don't worry, you can still pronounce it "ITEC"...


Watch this short animation from last year which explains IT²EC's new identity.
