ITEC 2013 re­flects a buoy­ant mil­i­tary train­ing and sim­u­la­tion com­mu­nity

SP's MAI - - CORPORATE -

Ex­hibitors were im­pressed by the con­tent, mil­i­tary at­ten­dance and busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties pre­sented at ITEC 2013, which made its in­au­gu­ral ap­pear­ance at the Fiera di Roma, Rome May 22-24. Maria Dahl Aa­gaard, Prod­uct Mar­ket­ing Man­ager, pro­jec- tion de­sign, con­cluded that “It has been a great show”, sen­ti­ments echoed by Doug Foster, Pro­gramme Man­ager at Plexys who stated, “There has been a good spread of in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors which has helped us achieve what we set out to ac­com­plish when we in­vested in the show”. Mean­while Greg Jef­freys, CEO, Sim­u­la­tion Dis­plays stated that “This has been the best show we have at­tended for busi­ness-to-busi­ness de­vel­op­ment... We will def­i­nitely be at­tend­ing Cologne next year.”

Th­ese pos­i­tive tes­ti­mo­ni­als are sup­ported by statis­tics; the event at­tracted over 2,800 at­ten­dees rep­re­sent­ing a record 50 coun­tries. Con­sid­ered by many of the world’s mil­i­taries to be the de­fin­i­tive show­case of the lat­est train­ing and sim­u­la­tion equip­ment, this year mil­i­tary rep­re­sen­ta­tion reached a record 44 per cent.

ITEC Event Di­rec­tor, Anna Cam­pag­noli, said; “ITEC 2013 has clearly shown how the MS&T com­mu­nity is ris­ing with com­mit­ment and in­no­va­tion to con­tem­po­rary chal­lenges; whether it is those fac­ing troops in ac­tion, the emer­gence of new threats, or ac­cli­ma­tis­ing to the fis­cal re­al­i­ties of our times. The feed­back I have re­ceived from our ex­hibitors, vis­i­tors and con­fer­ence del­e­gates has been hugely en­cour­ag­ing and demon­strates the con­fi­dence that the in­dus­try has in the show. I look for­ward to see­ing ev­ery­one at ITEC 2014 in Cologne.”

ITEC 2014 will be held in Cologne, Ger­many from May 20-22, 2014.
