“It’s the best forum to showcase our products…IAV XV has a high concentration of quality visitors. We simply can’t afford to miss this event!” [Soucy Defense]
With just 21 days to go until International Armoured Vehicles XV, Defence IQ posed five key questions to four of our leading event partners. RUAG Defense, IVECO Defence Vehicles, Nexter Systems and Soucy Defense have all discussed a number of important issues, including the major trends they have witnessed in the armoured vehicles market over the past two years and what customers are most frequently demanding, as well as how their respective companies are responding to these market demands and – of course – why they have decided to showcase their unique solutions at IAV XV in January 2015. In the meantime, if you want to know more about the current armoured vehicles procurement programmes happening in the world today, don’t forget to view our interactive Plans and Requirements Map.
