ITEC 2019

VIP Programme


The number and quality of the VIPs and Delegations visiting ITEC has long been a distinguishing feature of the event.  Senior Officers and Delegations attend ITEC as our VIP guests. These most influential members of the international military training, education and simulation community include representatives of national governments, ministries concerned with defence and security, central defence staff, and armed services.

ITEC offers exhibitors the opportunity to meet with VIPs and Delegations. As we build up to the Show in May 2019, we will be working with our exhibitors and our delegations to match the capabilities they are interested in with the products and services offered by exhibitors at ITEC. We offer a meeting request service to help us with this.

All exhibitors are given the opportunity to request meetings with VIPs and Delegations at ITEC 2019. Ahead of the event confirmed exhibiting companies will be sent the list of attending VIPs and Delegations, and asked to write a short business case for wanting to meet them.

A bespoke visit program will then be put together listing selected stands that were successful in their bid.
