The 15th annual Military Airlift conference is the largest bespoke military airlift conference in Europe. Military Airlift 2014 will focus on ongoing missions being carried out across the world and how the correct and appropriate airlift capability is deployed and the development of new capability. There will also be an emphasis on the changing landscape of airlift with changes in multinational commands such as the EATC, the specific challenges posed by African missions including Operation Sangaris in Central Africa and much more. We are proud to be supported by many significant multinational commands in Europe such as European Air Group and Movement Coordination Centre Europe as well as many Air Forces from across Europe. NEW FOR 2014: Site visit to Pratica di Mare Airbase Military Airlift 2014 will have the full support of the Italian Air Force Third Division, who has organised a site visit to Pratica di Mare Airbase to see the Italian Air Force Tanker KC 767 aircraft on December 4th following the main conference to which all our conference attendees are invited.

Sporting events are no longer the most preferred target for terrorists, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Outdoor events, conferences, festivals, and other events featuring public figures are all vulnerable. And with over a thousand different-level attacks since 2015, it’s no surprise that safety and security are among the top concerns for event professionals.
