The PAvCon 2012 took place in association with the German Federal Police at their Hangelar, Bonn police air support headquarters facility in Sankt Augustin, Bonn, Germany over the recent Jubilee Festival holiday. While the holiday in the UK potentially reduced the number of exhibitors from there, the enthusiasm of mainland Europe, World exhibitors and the German police forces more than made up for their absence!
Powervamp’s attendance at the conference was a great success with several products being ordered from the stand and with many inquiries taken from International organisations, there are sure to be further orders confirmed in the coming weeks.
The 25 nations attending included representatives from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Cyprus, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, England, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, United States of America, Wales and included 21 members from FRONTEX and the majority of the European Union Police Nations among nearly 200 attendees.
The primary aim of PAvCon Conferences is to provide the best possible location for the delegates from police and industry to meet and Network together in the most amenable conditions. To this end, this is not simply a daytime program of conference presentations spread over two days, opportunities are provided for business related meetings to take place at pre-show and evening events over 3 days.
The static display included aircraft displays from Aerodata, Eurocopter, FLIR Systems, Indra/Tecnam and Vulcanair and included the recently delivered Vulcanair P68 now operated by Hessen Police and the latest Indra concept surveillance aircraft based on the Tecnam P2006.
