Chief of Army Symposium to be held at Land Forces

The Australian Army has announced the Chief of Army Symposium, Army’s capstone event, will be held at the 2024 Land Forces International Land Defence Exposition.

Hosted by the Chief of Army, Lieutenant General Simon Stuart, AO, DSC, the Symposium serves to encourage innovators and thinkers, and demonstrate commitment to fostering partnerships with Australia’s allies, partner forces and Defence Industry.

The Chief of Army Symposium 2023 included around 1500 Defence personnel, academia, industry representatives and international partners, including 22 international delegations.

The 2024 symposium will incorporate the Army Innovation Day and Army Quantum Technology Challenge, both highlighting the ability of Australian academia and Defence Industry to innovate to address capability gaps for Army.

“As the largest single gathering of Industry and Defence, Land Forces 2024 is an ideal venue for the Chief of Army Symposium,” said Lieutenant General Stuart.

“It will provide a platform for presentations and interactive discussions with eminent thinkers, Industry and our international partners on topics relevant to Army and the Australian Defence Force in defence of our nation and in our contribution to stability in the region.”

Justin Giddings, CEO of Land Forces 2024 organiser AMDA Foundation, said the Land Forces team would be honoured to once again have Army’s premier event occur during Land Forces.

“At Land Forces 2022 the Chief of Army spent considerable time walking the exhibition floor and meeting with a cross section of defence providers, showing great commitment to engaging with industry,” he said.

“Engagement is the foremost goal of every Land Forces event, and hosting the Chief of Army Symposium will create opportunities for meaningful interaction at Land Forces 2024.”

The 2024 Land Forces International Land Defence Exposition will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, from 11-13 September 2024.
