London, United Kingdom, May 06, 2018 --( SMi’s third annual Helicopter Technology Central and Eastern Europe conference will be taking place later this month on the 23rd and 24th May 2018.

In recent news, the Czech Republic announced its plans to launch a revised army tender for 12 new multipurpose helicopters, with a supplier to be announced mid-year. Previously, Bell Helicopters had offered 12 UH-1Ys in a deal worth $575 million through a U.S. Foreign Military Sales process in 2017, and Leonardo had also reportedly submitted offers for its AW139M at the time (Rotar & Wing).

The event will also feature presentations from the Czech MoD, as well as Bell Helicopter and Leonardo, who will be attending as GOLD sponsors, exhibitors and presenters.

The two-day conference will be taking place in less than three weeks and the final agenda has grown significantly, with over 18 interactive presentations, panel discussions and briefings to be expected, including:

· Keynote presentations from the V4 nations: Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia providing insightful briefings and rotary updates from a Central and Eastern Europe perspective
