Rio de Janeiro
After a very successful first edition of NCT South America in Bogotá, NCT is coming back for its second edition: this time to Rio de Janeiro for NCT South America 2019!
The CBRNe Society’s official partnership with the Brazilian Army will bring together high-level decision-makers, experts and first responders in the field of CBRNe and EOD for an amazing three-day conference and exhibition. The event will take place at the Brazilian Ministry of Defense’s Copacabana Fort from the 5thto the 7thof February 2019. The conference language will be Spanish.
The Brazilian Armed Forces will kick off the event with an opening by the Brazilian Army Band followed by a live CBRNe capability demonstration illustrating their current CBRNe and C-IED capabilities. A few steps away, Copacabana Fort will host a industry exhibition and expo tour to showcase novel solutions to the ever-evolving CBRNe threats. The expo area will also host the NCT South America Churrasco Welcome Party after the Opening Plenary Session, a unique opportunity for you to network with relevant local, regional and international CBRNe stakeholders over a Caipirinha with views of Copacabana beach!
Day two will continue the NCT South America conference stream, addressing topics related to Brazil’s cross-agency CBRNe capability building in preparation for its past High Visibility Events (HVEs), as well as what it has planned ahead. There is much the region and the world can learn from Brazil’s cooperation with its regional partners, and 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.
NCT South America will also welcome a range of topics, also bringing regional actors and international experts together to discuss cooperation in training for the response to CBRNe and EOD threats in the Latin America Region, regional UXO challenges, and much more! The conference will therefore 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 safer and more secure place.
As per our other NCT editions, all participants are invited to the famous NCT Churrasco Networking Reception at the Copacabana Fort and it will be the perfect opportunity to meet relevant actors in the fields of CBRNe and C-IED.
On that note, see you all at Copacabana – Vejo você lá
