|International Armoured Vehicles 2013 Dynamic Vehicle Experience at Long Valley Test Track.|
International Armoured Vehicles, the largest show dedicated solely to the armoured vehicles community, has just announced that they are launching a live dynamic vehicle experience at the Long Valley Test Track during the 2013 event, which takes place at the FIVE in Farnborough, UK. Long Valley Test Track, located in Aldershot, features different terrains and obstacles, such as the alpine track, sand traps and water features, for an enhanced live experience. Open for test track exhibitors and their military guests, the dynamic vehicle experience is designed for vehicle manufacturers to showcase their products to their clients in an “immersion” setting, with each track running a duration of anywhere from 15-30 minutes at a time.
Defence IQ is proud to announce that they are hosting a Dynamic Vehicle Experience at the Long Valley Test Track, exclusive to test track exhibitors and invited military personnel during IAV 2013 International Armoured Vehicles Conference and Exhibition.

With this new installation, the 2013 International Armoured Vehicles show marks a clear evolution in Defence IQ’s flagship armoured vehicle event. The event is traditionally comprised of a large scale conference of 600+ attendees, combined with a focussed exhibition hall, which annually welcomes 2,100+ visitors from 47 countries.
Quoted in February 2012 in his previous role, Lieutenant General Christopher Michael Deverell, Director Land Materiel, DE&S UK MoD commented, “There are lots of conferences around, but there’s not another one on this sort of scale that is specifically focussed on armoured vehicles, so it fills a very useful niche.”
Running for its 12th time in 2013, International Armoured Vehicles once again offers a high-level and technical programme during the conference, with topics focussing on Survivability, Innovative Armour, Simulation, Maintenance and Industry Requirements. The popular introduction of last year’s G6 Industry Panel sees its return for 2013, with new panellists such as General Dynamics, Iveco, Lockheed Martin, Nexter, Renault and Textron, as well as the addition of the International Industry Leaders Panel (IILP). Much like the G6 Panel, the IILP will feature leaders in the international space, discussing up-and-coming markets of interest to the land defence industry, such as Turkey, Brazil, Russia and the Middle East.
The 2013 show also introduces the Industry Focus Day, which is designed to provide a platform for technical experts from Tier 1 companies to present their current projects, challenges and future capability requirements to members of the military and Tier 2 and 3 groups.
Amongst the prestigious speaker faculty are Lieutenant General David Halverson, Deputy Commander TRADOC, Major General Andrew Sharpe OBE, DG DCDC UK Ministry of Defence and Fleet Admiral Marco Antonio Guimaraes, General Commandant of the Brazilian Marine Corps.
them are over 50 senior government officials and international flag officers
