CBRNe Convergence Congress & Exhibition, San Diego, California, USA - 31 October - 2 November, 2016. The most important annual congress for the global CBRNE community now in its 10th year!

Growing closer, staying distinct, merging civilian and military response to CBRN, IED and all hazard threats is the constant theme of CBRNe Convergence.

Streamed sessions allow you to choose presentations that best fit the needs of your organization and foster an understanding of how you can bring together civil and military forces in such fields as CBRN, EOD and hazmat to better prepare for current and future challenges. PLUS Poster presentations which outline some of the latest developments in science and technology.
