The Atlantic Alliance of Aerospace and Defence Associations (AAADA), in cooperation with ACOA is planning an Atlantic Canada Mission to the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) 2013 in Orlando, Florida, 2-5 Dec 13.

AAADA is soliciting Expressions of Interest from Atlantic Canadian firms interested in participating in the Mission to attend I/ITSEC, in Orlando, Florida, Dec. 2-5, 2013.

I/ITSEC is the world’s premier trade and conference event related to training and simulation. All major players in the training and simulation community come together at this annual event.

The below statistics from I/ITSEC 2012 demonstrate the scope and reach of I/ITSEC. Approximately 16,000 total registrants. Included in that total (in round figures) are:
– 3,300 conference delegates,
– 6,600 exhibit personnel,
– 5,900 exhibit visitors,
– 561 exhibiting companies in 444 exhibits,
– 1,900 International registrants from 75 countries.
