LANPAC Early Registration Deadline is May 6

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

The Association of the U.S. Army will hold a three-day event in Hawaii beginning May 19 focusing on strategic landpower in the Indo-Asia-Pacific theater. Called LANPAC, the symposium and exhibition brings government and industry representatives together focusing on strategic partnerships in an area of the globe that includes more than half the world’s population.

The theme of the 2015 symposium is “Enhancing Capabilities of Land Forces, People, Partnerships, Products.”  The event will be held at the Sheraton Waikiki in Honolulu.

The Indo-Asia-Pacific theater spans 16 time zones, includes seven of the 10 largest armies in the world and five nuclear powers, and takes up about half the Earth’s surface, which is part of the reason why there will be 68 representatives from 20 countries other than the U.S. attending this year’s event. There will be ample opportunity for networking, and several panel discussions about regional partnerships.


Keynote speakers at the event are expected to include Gen. Vincent K. Brooks, the U.S. Army Pacific commanding general, and Gen. David G. Perkins, the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command commanding general. There will be panel discussions about air and missile defenses, building and sustaining land forces in the theater, force projection and running multinational contingency operations.


While onsite registration will be available to all interested parties, pre-registration is highly recommended. Online registration can be completed at www.ausameetings.org/lanpac/registration/ by May 6, 2015. There is no registration fee for military and government personnel.
