ABOUT OUR EVENT
NCT USA 2021 taking place at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor will welcome the highest decision makers from the national CBRNe, C-IED, EOD Community, again providing a networking and knowledge exchange platform for local & federal first responders, as well as industry leaders in the fields of CBRNe, C-IED and EOD. Over the duration of three days, NCT USA will feature a Conference, Exhibition and multiple Networking Opportunities.
Collaboration between the public and the private sectors as well as the use of the newest technologies are key factors capable of countering CBRNe threats. In the USA, as well as in many other countries, it is of significant importance to adopt a multi-level and interdisciplinary approach in order to face the complexity of the challenges CBRNe threats can pose.
I have known the NCT team for a very long time now, they are very professional & they are helping us when we need information or to meet delegates. NCT is a very good exhibition and a very good organization.

Best experience at NCT USA: being able to interact with end users at the PRO Trainings!
NCT through their conferences, have provided an opportunity to get us all on the same page as we face the many known and unknown threats ahead.
Commander | Boston Police Explosive Ordnance Unit | USA
The level of the expertise, the level of the instructors as well as the vendor participation was key. You don’t always get that at certain conferences, but at NCT events the networking is phenomenal!
Massachusetts State Police | USA
The conference was not only informative, but open and dynamic. The perfect combination of industry players, end users and science partners exceeded my expectation. Very detailed and effective speakers, clearly defined responders and industry challenges.

I always enjoy speaking at NCT’s events and this year was no different, even though we couldn’t all be in the same place. NCT Virtual USA was extremely well-produced and, as always, very informative.
Former Joint Program Executive Officer for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense | JPEO-CBRND | USA
“Engagement is the new currency for events and NCT Virtual USA truly knocked it out of the park! It was easy to connect and network with others, to navigate through the exhibit hall, and to enjoy presentations in the speaker room. In a world that is quickly shifting, we are thankful that NCT quickly adapted to provide a virtual way for us to learn about and celebrate new innovations in the CBRNe world.”
NCT Events are premier events for the exchange of critical information necessary for today’s evolving threats. At the heart of these events is the opportunity to meet global experts and connect eye-to-eye, make that critical connection, knowing full well that, while we hope that day never comes, these are the connections that will be crucial in a time of need…it’s at these events that lasting partnerships be made across a broad array of global risk response capabilities.
