NCT Asia 2018

9-11 October, 2018

Sheraton Hanoi, Vietnam


The world’s most successful CBRNe event series is heading back to Vietnam for the 11th edition of NCT Asia! Taking place at the Hanoi Sheraton Hotel from 9-11 October 2018, NCT Asia will be organized in collaboration with the Vietnamese People’s Army Military Medical Department and with the support of the Vietnamese Agency for Radiation and Nuclear Safety (VARANS) and the Vietnam National Mine Action Center (VNMAC).


Vietnam is one of the most developed countries in the South East Asian region when it comes to CBRNe. With nuclear power plants bordering the country and the IED threat in neighbouring countries such as Indonesia and Thailand, Vietnam is continuously developing its CBRNe, C-IED and demining capabilities. Following attacks using chemical agents in neighbouring Malaysia last year, the Vietnamese are investing heavily in preparation for CBRNe incidents.Vietnam itself has made many strides in overcoming a long history of landmine and explosive remnants of war (EWR) contamination, and can provide key insights from lessons learned in CBRNe defense and response. There is no better place to be in the Asia region than Vietnam!


NCT Asia 2018 will feature two days of parallel conference and workshop streams and will also host an exhibition tour of leading CBRNe industries. The conference and workshops will cover a wide-range of topics in the field of CBRN, C-IED and EOD including: Countering the IED threat in the Asia region; UXO and landmine clearance in post-conflict zones; and CBRNe capability development in South East Asia.


The collaboration with the Vietnamese People’s Army and the support of VNMAC and VARANS will bring together high-level decision-makers, experienced first-responders and industry leaders from all over the region! NCT Asia will be again the must-attend CBRNe event in Asia this year!
