Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
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.
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.
