CBRNe Convergence 2021... It's good to be back!*

CBRNe Convergence - live in Technicolour!

2-4 November 2021

We're back baby! Short of another world wide disaster we will be delighted to be back in Orlando for the fourth time!

If you click on the links above you'll be able to see the individuals that have agreed to speak in November. We have a special section looking at the chemical threat in the Middle East, with speakers from UNODA, the Peshmerga, the Lebanese Atomic Energy Commission (on the Beirut blast) and the team that investigated the destruction that Daesh left behind in Mosul. In addition to this we have presentations on domestic terrorism in the US and UK, as well as keeping Superbowls safe. 

We are also close to selling out on the exhibition! with new faces like M2DCON and Safeware Inc. joining established CBRN stalwarts like Flir, ITL Solutions, Federal Resources and Mirion Technologies. CBRNe Convergence has been the largest CBRN responder-focused conference and exhibition for 14 years, and it is THE place to come to find out the latest and best products!   

In addition to the live event, we are going to create a 'Combo'! Following the day of workshops and two days of conference and exhibition, we will host another Bitesize event from Decmeber 6-9. This will have all the presentations that we have been cleared to release from the week before PLUS some special guest stars filling in the slots for those presentations that we can't use for security reasons.The largest exhibition of CBRN equipment in the world will have a virtual exhibition the week after, to allow you to catch up on conversations that you had at the show! Your delegate ticket will allow you entry to both events! 

*We are indeed back, but as many of you may be aware there are currently still some travel restrictions on entering the USA from the UK and Schengen countries. We are hoping that these restrictions will be lifted, but in the meantime you can prepare yourself by begining the application process for something called a National Interest Exemption. This is a specialist waiver to the presidential travel proclamation, more information on which can be found on our website here or by visiting the visa section of the US Embassy website in your region. 

CBRNe World have negotiated special conference accommodation rates for CBRNe Convergence 2021 at the main Convergence venue, Rosen Plaza Hotel, 9700 International Drive, Orlando, Florida, 32819. To book standard rates from $165 per room per night please click here.
