The third Manama Air Power Symposium (MAPS 2020) scheduled to take place on November 17 has been turned into a virtual conference at the request of the Royal Bahrain Air Force command.
Presentations of speakers will be live streamed to a large audience of registered participants who will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of each session.
MAPS 2020 is held under the patronage of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and supported by the Royal Bahrain Air Force and the Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunication. MAPS 2020 is the official conference of Bahrain International Air Show that was cancelled for this year due to COVID-19 containment measures.
MAPS 2020 will bring together a select high-caliber audience of air force commanders and operators, policymakers and industry leaders from over 25 countries for the most important regional air power conference in 2020. All registered individuals will be able to follow the event from the comfort of their homes and offices from around the world. There will also be opportunities to interact with the speakers and other participants.
The theme for MAPS 2020 is “Air Power and Air Defense in High Tempo and Networked Environments” where the one-day international conference will discuss the most pressing issues in air power and missile defense in light of the most recent experiences and lessons learned in-theater from operations.
The scale of participation and nature of discussions at MAPS provides a valuable platform for defense officials and industry partners alike to stay at the cutting edge of developments, making it an event not to be missed for the international defense and aerospace community.
