Registration opens for the 6th Annual Defence Logistics Central and Eastern Europe Conference

As the need for armed forces to enhance and maximise their logistical capacity continues to grow, and with the current political climate in Europe, it is now more important than ever for senior military officials to meet and discuss the planning, joint operations and allied interoperability, as well as how to engage more closely and efficiently with industry.

Building on the success of previous five defence logistics conferences, SMi Group are delighted to announce the return of the Defence Logistics Central and Eastern Europe conference taking place on the 2nd and 3rd March 2021 as a fully interactive, virtual meeting.
