Event Overview:

OPV & Surface Combatants Latin America 2014

The 2014 conference is hosted in Colombia and co-located with the South American Security Summit: SAMSEC 14. This means that not only will visitors meet the full faculty of OPV experts from the region, but also a number of senior defence and security officers discussing the strategic regional security picture.All of these people are valuable contacts for building your defence network in Colombia and Latin America.

The 2012 and 2013 conferences comprehensively explored partnership and business opportunities for global industry in the region and delivered two exceptional agendas for Brazil. Now, after two years in Rio de Janeiro, Offshore Patrol Vessels & Surface Combatants Latin America returns for 2014, in the new location of Cartagena, Colombia.

Officially supported by COTECMAR and the Colombian Navy, the 2014 conference will examine topics intrinsic to the OPV and combat ship market such as shipbuilding capacity, systems design, damage control, program management and operational capability. Latin America continues to be one of the more dynamic naval markets in the world with new OPV procurement projects emerging in Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, Uruguay and Mexico. These complement the large maintenance and upgrade requirements within Brazil and Chile.

Colombia is right at the epicentre of this dynamism where, under the Colombian Navy’s 'Orion Plan', 6 OPVs are being built by 2015. What effect will this new class of vessel have on the regional marketplace? Are these the export models of the future?
