Attend the 2019 Global Explosive Ordnance Disposal Symposium & Exhibition, produced by NDIA in partnership with the EOD Warrior Foundation, as we examine innovation in training and technology for the international EOD, public safety bomb squad (PSBS), and UXO/demining community. Our theme is “Innovation for the Future.” Military members attend this event for free, so expect to interact with numerous EOD technicians in uniform from all Services’ operational units as well as program managers and resource sponsors from the Pentagon. There will be attendees and speakers/panelists from the Interagency to include ATF, FBI, and the DHS Office of Bombing Prevention. Traditionally, we have a strong showing from NATO and expect to have representatives again from the NATO C-IED and EOD Centers of Excellence.
