The 2020 Global Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Symposium & Exhibition team continues to monitor the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Currently, the 2020 Global EOD Symposium & Exhibition is scheduled to occur as published. The health and safety of our event participants, members, and partners remains our top priority and we are committed to following the guidelines and precautions as outlined by the CDC.

NDIA is fully prepared to adjust any and all plans if the situation changes. We are following – and will remain in compliance with – all city, state, and federal guidelines. If the direction from the federal, state, or local official public health authorities does changes between now and the event, we will adhere to that guidance and act upon it immediately and will update everyone.

The NDIA team recognizes the importance of convening the national security and defense communities to promote the best policies, practices, products, and technology for warfighters and others who ensure the safety and security of our nation. Thank you for continuing to support and we hope to see you soon.

For more information and updates from NDIA about COVID-19, please refer to the NDIA Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update Page.


Join us for the 2020 Global Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Symposium & Exhibition, produced by NDIA in partnership with the EOD Warrior Foundation, as we examine innovation in training and technology for the international EOD, public safety bomb squad (PSBS), and UXO/demining community. As military members attend this event complimentarily, you can expect to interact with numerous EOD technicians in uniform from all Services’ operational units as well as program managers and resource sponsors from the Pentagon. There will be attendees and speakers/panelists from the Interagency to include ATF, FBI, and the DHS Office of Bombing Prevention. Traditionally, we have a strong showing from NATO and expect to have representatives again from the NATO C-IED and EOD Centers of Excellence.

The Global EOD Symposium & Exhibition continues in its 11th year as an NDIA event in partnership with the EOD Warrior Foundation and is the preeminent annual event for the EOD, PSBS, and UXO/demining community.  

Moreover, this year marks the first time that this symposium will be co-located with the 2020 International Explosives Safety Symposium & Exhibition! This year’s Global Explosive Ordnance Disposal exhibit hall will be bigger and more robust than ever.

NDIA has a policy of strict compliance with federal and state antitrust laws. The antitrust laws prohibit competitors from engaging in actions that could result in an unreasonable restraint of trade. Consequently, NDIA members must avoid discussing certain topics when they are together - both formal association membership, board, committee and other meetings and in information contacts with other industry members: prices, fees, rates, profit margins, or other terms or conditions of sale (including allowances, credit terms, and warranties); allocation of markets or customers or division of territories; or refusals to deal with or boycotts of suppliers, customers or other third parties, or topics that may lead participants not to deal with a particular supplier, customer or third party.
