Welcome to the world’s premier armoured vehicles forum

The past year has seen the perceived future threat environment come full circle as unrest in the Middle East persists and NATO faces challenges old and new.

By the next conference, NATO will have withdrawn from combat operations in Afghanistan and many governments have indicated an aversion to ‘boots on the ground’.  But during a year when the threat from ISIS/ISIL/IS has become manifest and the conflict in Ukraine begs international attention, many have suggested that boots on the ground are almost always necessary to stabilise and ultimately resolve such issues.  With boots comes the need for firepower, mobility, protection and information, best provided by a combination of aerial platforms and armoured vehicles.

At IAV XV it will therefore be our duty to ask the pressing questions such as: What technology and platforms are we preparing with one eye on the future and one on the present? How can the modern armoured vehicle continue to adapt and remain capable in 21st century theatres of conflict?

January 2015 will see the International Armoured Vehicles confex move to the internationally renowned home of rugby,Twickenham Stadium in London. As part of our exciting move back to London, the Rt Hon Michael Fallon MP- Secretary of State for Defence, UK Ministry of Defence- and Mr Philip Dunne MP- Minister for Defence Equipment, Support & Technology- have both accepted invitations to deliver ministerial keynote presentations.

We welcome you to join us as at IAV XV to:

  • Re-join the largest, annual and international gathering of armoured mobility experts to develop and share your organisation’s capability, knowledge and project management expertise within the largest group of targeted prospective partners, anywhere in the world
  • Engage with your customers and supply chains in conference and at the exhibition in order to solve common challenges and to bring forward your modernisation and development agendas
  • Explore the future threat environment with the community’s thought leaders, policy makers and innovators and support the community's ability to defeat the enemy by demonstrating your armoured capability

At IAV XV, you will enjoy a unique opportunity to focus on armoured capability and learn, within the constraints of security, how to make the best of the capability in hand and how to focus future requirements. Sharing these varied experiences in this vital field, at a venue that offers the space to exhibit, confer and network with a wide variety of international colleagues on one site is, quite simply, an opportunity that cannot be missed.

So, whether you are a military practitioner, acquisition staffer, decision maker, programme manager, technical expert, industrial supplier or strategic leader, we look forward to welcoming you to Twickenham early next year. 

If you are a stakeholder in this sector, IAV XV is the place to be so, if you've not attended before, come and join 45+ Speakers, 50+ Nations, 50+ Sponsors and 200+ Senior Military Decision-Makers for the debate in January. If you are interested in participating, please get in touch at
