Welcome to the MEDEVAC community's annual international meeting
MEDEVAC is a sector of our industry in constant demand. In the US alone, there are around 400,000 rotary-wing MEDEVAC transports made annually, and a further 150,000 patients are flown by fixed wing aircrafts.
As the industry prepares for its next challenges, readiness and responsiveness is vital. Our unique platform provides the opportunity for medical service personnel and procurement teams to learn share and connect with solution providers and thought leaders.
The 2017 programme will focus on developing the required capacity to react to humanitarian crises and the casualties of conflict and terrorism. Specifically our agenda will include sessions discussing blood cold chain solutions for foreign theatres, biocontainment units, new rotary platforms and the recruitment and retention of medical personnel.
In this cost-constrained environment, we will also be looking at the requirement for nations to pool and share resources and the trend towards interoperability, a hugely important element in the future of MEDEVAC.
We look forward to welcoming you to London in October!
Hear the latest updates and operational case studies from UN peacekeeping operations and understand how multinational operations are continuing to adapt to austere environments in order to best organise your aeromedical resources.
Inform future planning and budgeting decisions by gaining an understanding of how emerging technology over the next 5-10 years is going to increase MEDEVAC capacity whilst maintaining cost-efficiency.
Communicate with- and understand how- military, industry and NGOs are able to cooperate and find solutions to resource problems without affecting quality of care.
Engage with our most senior, varied and influential speaker panel to date to gain a truly global and well rounded insight into how MEDEVAC operational capability can be optimised.
