Introduction

With support to the EOD Warrior Foundation*, the Global EOD Conference and Exhibition will facilitate contact and cooperation between industry and the EOD community with the goal of ensuring EOD forces have access to the ideas and technologies that originate in our nation's industrial and academic base. Further, the Conference and Exhibition will facilitate the sharing of industry and academic viewpoints, recommendations, and advice on EOD support concepts, policies, plans, programs, requirements, and technologies, and assess the potential impacts of pending legislation, regulations, and procedures.

*The EOD Warrior Foundation honors fallen EOD warriors and provides assistance and support to wounded EOD warriors and the families of wounded and fallen EOD personnel in communities throughout our nation. The Foundation also ensures the ongoing care of the EOD Memorial Wall at Eglin AFB in FL. The EOD Warrior Foundation believes the EOD family is for life and has an ongoing mission to provide financial assistance and other means of support to our warriors and their families during their most difficult times and throughout their journey of healing.
 
Every year, on the first Saturday in May, the EOD Memorial Ceremony is held to commemorate fallen EOD technicians to recognize and preserve the legacy of the service and sacrifices of our EOD warriors and their families. See more at: http://www.eodwarriorfoundation.org
