Advancements and Opportunities within the Armored,
Homeland Security and Law Enforcement Vehicle Market

New York, NY, April 18, 2013 - IDGA has just announced the date of its flagship Military Vehicles Exhibition & Conference. Now in its fifth year, MVEC is the largest stand-alone vehicle event in the United States. Last year’s event brought together over 200 exhibitors, 2,000+ international/domestic attendees and 28 participating countries.

This year will bring a new expanded perspective that will include armored vehicles for national security and law enforcement. As the vehicle community faces a series of challenges previously unfelt, individuals have stepped up to continue vital communications, collaborations and research developments. Sustaining these conversations will undoubtedly return value in the future years since progress marches on tirelessly.

The event will bring together 30+ high profile speakers including Lieutenant Colonel Lior Kotick, Project Manager, ISRAEL MOD, Paul Villaire, Chief, Foreign Intelligence Technology Section, HQDA, DCS G-2 and Eileen Wenger Tutt, Executive Director, California Electric Transportation Coalition.
