We are delighted to announce, the inaugural Counter Threat Symposium, a joint initiative between the CBRN and Counter-EO Special Interest Groups (SIGs) of ADS, building upon the successful format for what was the CBRN-UK Symposium. The event is taking place at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre and will also be the platform for the MOD Industry Day. 

This event will bring together practitioners including: the humanitarian sector, end users, policy makers, and suppliers from UK and overseas to discuss the latest developments and requirements across both sectors.




This year’s conference will have a focus for each of the SIG’s on the days split into two halves, separated by the MOD presentations on Day 2.

  • Day one will focus on Counter-EO issues, requirements and trends, with speakers from across the Counter-EO community.
  • Day two, the MOD Industry day is designed to bring the audience up to speed on the current threat, extant and future equipment programmes and opportunities for UK industry.
  • Day three will be CBRN focused looking at domestic and international CBRN threat, response, capability, and addressing some of the key challenges such as post-mortem of contaminated victims. 

The event is open to the membership of both SIGs and non-members alike*. As well as receiving updates from across their sector delegates have the opportunity to represent their company with a tabletop exhibition stand (subject to availability). There will be a sponsored networking event on the first evening and numerous breakout opportunities throughout the event designed to foster cross-department discussion. 

*Members will receive priority when booking as the event is limited in size. If you are a Counter-EO UK or CBRN-UK member who are not an ADS member, please contact us to obtain the member rate.

This will run across both days and will allow delegates to network with key UK manufacturers of the latest Counter EO and CBRN products and services. Please here click for the latest floor plan.
