NCT South America 2019
February 5, 2019 - February 7, 2019
After a very successful first edition of NCT South America in Bogotá, NCT is coming back for its second edition: this time to Rio de Janeiro for NCT South America 2019! The CBRNe Society’s official partnership with the Brazilian Armed Forces will bring together high-level decision-makers, experts and first responders in the field of CBRNe and EOD for an amazing three-day conference and exhibition. The event will take place at the Brazilian Ministry of Defense’s Copacabana Fort from the 5th to the 7th of February 2019. The conference language will be Spanish.
The Brazilian Armed Forces will kick off the event with a live CBRNe capability demonstration followed by a Static Display illustrating their current CBRNe and C-IED capabilities. We will host a large indoor and outdoor where we will also host the NCT South America Churrasco Welcome Party, as well as the NCT BBQ Networking Reception, with views over Copacabana beach.
The NCT South America conference stream, will address topics related to High Visibility Events (HVEs), regional cooperation in South America, cooperation in training for the response to CBRNe and EOD threats in the Latin America Region, regional UXO challenges, and much more!
Brazil has had its own experience with CBRNe disasters. Having hosted the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the 2016 Summer Olympics amongst the many other HVEs hosted since 2006 and having seen one of the largest radiological accidents to date with the Cs-137 Accident in the Goiânia region, Brazil has key insights and experience in CBRNe Capability development.
The event will host high-level decision-makers, academics and first responders from Brazil, Latin America and beyond to share experience and knowledge on the latest CBRNe and EOD threats, to discuss current structures and solutions for making this world a better and more secure place.
