Join Seoul's main CBRNe event: live demonstration by ROK Armed Forces

We live in a time of heightened tensions between North Korea and South Korea, a time in which Pyongyang warns for the outbreak of a thermonuclear war. North Korea has access to weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and allegedly used nerve agent VX to kill Kim Jong Un’s half-brother in Kuala Lumpur. Non-conventional threats confront the ROK Armed Forces and US servicemen and servicewomen who protect the Republic of Korea on a daily basis and the North Korea threat has tremendous consequences for the whole world.

Organized in Official Partnership with the Korean BioDefense Research Institute (BDRI) and the Korean CBRN Society, NCT Asia Pacific is coming back to Seoul for its second edition! Taking place in the heart of Seoul at the Imperial Palace Hotel in Gangnam from May 16-18 2017, the event will kick-start with a live capability demonstration, followed by a two-day conference and exhibition. The event will bring together leading stakeholders from the ROK Army, CBRNe first responders, government representatives and ground-breaking research institutes, including Korean representatives from the Fire Service, Police, National 119 Rescue Service, Armed Forces, as well as official delegations from countries such as Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, the USA and Australia.
