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.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 the NCT Team will strictly follow the current CDC guidance and DoD policies.

Additionally, the following measures will be implemented at the event:
‚ÄĘ Free KN95 masks (imported by IB Consultancy on behalf of the Dutch government and tested and approved for medical use) available for each participant;
‚ÄĘ Spacious set up of the event space to allow for social distancing and wherever needed, walking directions;
‚ÄĘ Disinfection stations available throughout the event space;
‚ÄĘ Regular announcements related to social distancing rules and the obligatory use of protective masks.

If you are traveling to the United States from abroad, please check the current travel regulations with your Consulate/Embassy ahead of time. Individuals traveling from the Schengen Area need to apply for a National Interest Exemption (NIE) with their respective US Consulate/Embassy. Applications for NIE may take 15-30 working days to be approved so we strongly encourage you to submit the application to your consulate at your earliest convenience.
