NDIA invites you to join upwards of 500 leading members of the international explosives safety community to advance all aspects of explosives throughout the munitions life cycle. At the first occurrence of this event since 2018, attendees will discover the real-life applications of the event theme, “Explosives Safety: People, Processes, and Infrastructure,” while they explore the universe of explosives safety across the DoD enterprise.

Come take part in discussions, poster presentations, and training workshops about optimizing military capability and reducing risk wherever possible when explosives are involved. You won’t want to miss out on this opportunity to connect and network with explosives safety professionals, military personnel, scientists and engineers, university representatives, and members of industry, government, and academia from around the world.

Moreover, this year marks the second time that this symposium is also an exhibition—and, since it will be co-located with the 2020 Global Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Symposium & Exhibition, this year’s International Explosives Safety exhibit hall will be bigger and more robust than ever.


Numbers are based on 2018 attendance 

NDIA is continually monitoring the current novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak situation and will communicat any specific updates via NDIA.org/Coronavirus. Unless or until otherwise noted, all NDIA meetings, conferences, and events are scheduled to occur as published and planned.
