Event

The 7th edition of Europe’s highly successful NCT event series, NCT Europe 2018, will take place from 3-5 July at the National Training Center (NTC) at the Bredero barracks in Vught, The Netherlands. The official partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Defense guarantees the presence of the most high-level CBRNe stakeholders from all over Europe. 

The three-day event will feature live CBRNe capability demonstrations, one conference stream, multiple workshops, training sessions for civil and military responders, a large indoor and outdoor industry exhibition and the famous NCT BBQ Party. 

NCT Europe will introduce a new feature at our NCT event series: NCT CBRNe Training. Teams from all over Europe (and abroad) are invited to come to the National Training Center (NTC) for daily training on different CBRNe scenarios. Each team will be matched to another team from a different country: Dutch Firemen with German military, French police with Austrian ambulance teams, etc. CBRNe events increasingly require an international response, which is why training should be multinational and multidisciplinary. That is what NCT CBRNe Training at the NTC is all about: providing multidisciplinary training in an international environment. Although the these sessions are not open for the audience (it’s training, not demonstrations), we will provide video uplinks to show (parts) of the them on a screen in the exhibition area.

Based on the successes of NCT Europe 2017 in Sonthofen, NCT Europe 2018 will again feature a large outdoor exhibition area which gives room for premium sponsors to showcase larger solutions and products.  Join us now to experience the perfect balance between live exercises, demonstrations, interactive workshops and conferences. We look forward to welcoming the international CBRNe community to the Netherlands in 2018!
