20 Nov 05. Reed Exhibitions is conducting a major strategic review of its aerospace and defence events in the Asia-Pacific region. ‘The needs of our aerospace and defence customers in Asia are changing very fast’ said Paul Beh, President of Reed Exhibitions, Asia. ‘Following the failure to reach agreement on a new venue for Asian Aerospace in Singapore for 2008, this is an appropriate time to conduct a full strategic review which will result in a redesign of our Asian products, including Asian Aerospace, to provide even greater impact and efficiency for our broad range of clients.’ ‘We are totally committed to meeting the growing demand for effective aerospace and defence events across the Asia-Pacific region but also recognise the industry’s desires for rationalisation and improved ROI. An exciting strategy is emerging and during the next few months we will share our plans with our major exhibitors to ensure that the end result reflects both their current concerns and future needs. Until the new strategy has been developed and tested with our clients, our launch of Aerospace China will be put on hold.’ (See: BATTLESPACE UPDATE Vol.7 ISSUE 41, 21st October 2005, Reed and Singapore Technologies have chosen to go their separate ways?)
23 Nov 05. HSR Workshop: Education and Extremism. Amended Date: 23 January 2006. RUSI, London. A series of articles and reports by the media and government have observed the alarming way that UK universities are being targeted by extremist groups. Whether it is animal rights terrorists attacking property or far-right and Islamist groups using aliases and front-groups to recruit students to their cause, there is little doubt that universities, schools and colleges have a part to play in combating extremism.
