CDIS REVIEW 3/2016
You now have an opportunity to look into this year’s third issue of the English version of the CDIS Review, which is focused mainly on the MSPO fair in Kielce, Future Forces exhibition in Prague, and the NATO Days in Ostrava. The principal mission of the English version of the CDIS Review is to provide media support to the Czech defence and security industry, in particular during the major international events in Poland and the Czech Republic. We will also remind ourselves of the last issue of the CDIS Review, which was widely distributed at the leading European event of this year, EUROSATORY 2016 in Paris. We are happy that our stand in the Press Village was visited by many distinguished guests both from the Czech Republic and from other countries.
On the first day of the fair, during the official opening of the Czech stand, we arranged the presence of renowned foreign journalists.
The MS Line s.r.o. publishing house and the Review magazines are the Czech’s Republic principal media partners of the FUTURE FORCES event taking place on the exhibition grounds in Praha – Letňany. In accordance with the tradition, the MS Line publishing house organizes and put together an international panel of journalists which grants awards to the best exhibits and activities in various categories. The competition is announced by the international panel of journalists the chairman of which is Stephan Barnard, former editor-in-chief of the Military Technology magazine. Its members include renowned journalists from France, Poland, Norway, Germany and Czech Republic.
The CDIS Review offers a number of interesting articles in which various companies present their current product portfolios, as well as some of their exhibits and innovations. You will also find basic information on the fair and accompanying Future Forces Forum conferences. However, a presentation in the CDIS Review does not amount only to media support at selected fairs, exhibitions, conferences etc. Its exclusive distribution list includes selected NATO and EU representatives, all Czech embassies and consular offices, committees of the House of Deputies and the Senate of the Czech Parliament, leading government representatives, trade and industrial partners both at home and abroad, Kbely Aerodrome Terminal and many other places and addresses.On this occasion, I would also like to mention an increasingly wider usage of on-line versions of printed Review magazines.
At the same time, I would like to inform you about the commencement of preparations of the thematic and publication plan of the Czech and English versions of the CDIS Review for 2017, which we will let you know about soon. Your media plan may also include both printed and electronic versions of the Catalogue of Security and Defence Technologies of the Czech Republic 2017-2018. We will be in touch with you in September and October.
Dear readers, the editorial staff look forward to meeting you during the Future Forces Forum, from October 19 to 21, at the stand of MS Line, next to the stand of the Czech Defence and Security Industry Association and close to the stand of the Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic.
