Defence community to meet and discuss requirements of Asian army modernisation

Clarion Events hosts the regions‘ first comprehensive army centric conference and exhibition, bringing together senior army and industry personnel to discuss force modernisation trends in the region

Singapore, 21 Mar 2011 – Clarion Events is hosting Future Land Forces 2011 on 27, 28, 29 June 2011 at the Singapore EXPO, Singapore. The event brings together the land force community in Asia, and features top regional military speakers who will be addressing the latest requirements for Asian armies.

According to John Geenty, Director, Global Defence Conferences at Clarion Events “defence budgets are rising and modernisation options are broadening in the Asian market, we see that land forces in this region are taking the lead in the procurement of mechanised ground forces, ISR capabilities and support fire platforms. Yet there hasn’t been an event of quality and scale based around a well researched agenda for the Asian land market. Future Land Forces is the only event of its type and we’re delighted to be able to provide this forum for the Asian land sector.“

The conference will cover how regional armies are optimising their increased budgets in the acquisition and upgrading of infantry, armour, artillery and unmanned platforms and technologies. Attendees will also learn and compare operational capabilities from experienced nations to assist them in the decision making process for when they prepare their army’s future capability roadmap.

Future Land Forces 2011 features High-level officials from Asian armies and Ministries of Defence. Highlights include:

  • Lieutenant General Jagath Jayasuriya the Chief of the SRI LANKA ARMY
  • Brigadier General Agus Suyarso, Director of Technology and Industry in the Indonesian Ministry of Defence
  • Colonel Felicisimo Bodiongan the Chief of Staff of the Light Armour Division of the Philippine Army
