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.  They are senior 1* officers and above, and equivalent defence and government officials serving in defence training, modelling, simulation and education appointments both in UK Government, UK MOD and Overseas Governments and MODs.  They include top decision makers and influencers from Land, Naval, Air, Joint, Medical and Security sectors who are engaged in procurement decisions, identify future requirements or gaps in capability, shape future policy and develop operational strategies.

ITEC offers exhibitors the opportunity to meet with VIPs and Delegations.  As we build up to the Show in May 2017, 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.

Delegations are drawn from
