In just over two weeks on Saturday 7th November 2015, a select audience of 500 participants including air force commanders from around the world will gather at the 7th Dubai International Air Chiefs Conference (DIAC 2015) at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai, UAE.
DIAC 2015 is held under the patronage of H. H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Minister of Defense of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, is supported by the Ministry of Defense (MOD) and hosted by the UAE Air Force and Air Defense (AFAD).
Lockheed Martin have signed up to join Northrop Grumman as a Gold Sponsor to DIAC 2015, and Saab, BAE Systems, and Raytheon have signed up to join MBDA and Textron Systems as Silver Sponsors. Over the next two weeks, more key industry partners are expected to finalize their participation in DIAC 2015.
With over 40 Air Force delegations from around the world attending at the highest levels and an exclusively invitation-only gala dinner at a prestigious hotel later in the evening, DIAC 2015 offers a rare set of opportunities for high-impact business networking and high-level customer engagement for the global defense and aerospace community.
Air Force leaders share unprecedented insights through a series of operationally-oriented discussions, and DIAC 2015 boasts a high-level panel of speakers to deliberate on the employment of air power against the emerging hybrid threats - drawing on historical and the most recent experiences in-theatre.
DIAC 2015 is a highly focused one-day conference that brings together thought leaders and the most senior decision-makers from air forces and industry partners around the world to address a series of strategic and operational considerations concerning the employment, development, and future of air power.
The UAE Ministry of Defense commissioned Specialized Events and General Marketing Activities (SEGMA) to organize the 7th DIAC. SEGMA is an event organizer and management firm based in Dubai, UAE, which is in the process of taking over events and events-related activities previously owned, managed, and run by INEGMA.
