Dignanian Military Symposium

a week-long conference for military leaders co-sponsored by the Moderate-Loyalist Front for the Liberation of Dignania and the Kingdom of Eastern Zartania

DATE:  Sunday, February 6, through Thursday, February 10, 300AP
LOCATION:  Grand Kasama Hotel & Convention Center, Kasama, Dignania
WHAT IS THIS?:  The Dignanian Military Symposium is a cooperative effort between the MLFLD and the KTZ for military and government leaders from around the world to enhance their knowledge of modern combat operations and problems, as well as to expand their thinking horizons to develop solutions to those problems.  Guests of the symposium will attend a number of conferences, discussions, and lectures detailing various aspects of the current war in Dignania, and how those aspects can be applied to the modern battlefield.  Conferences will be divided by military branch (i.e. army, navy, air force), though some general conferences will be offered during the course of the symposium.  The purpose of the conference is the sharing of ideas between international military leaders in order to facilitate the better understanding of international conflict in the modern era across Vexillium.  Limited shows and displays of military hardware will be available throughout the week, and a tour of the front lines (along the Pascal River) will also be provided to symposium attendees.  Accomodations and meals will be provided by the MLFLD government and the Royal Zartanian Army Supply Corps.


WHO IS INVITED?:  The MLFLD and the Eastern Zartanian Royal Government have elected to invite certain friendly states to send representatives to the symposium, while opening the general admission to almost every state in Vexillium:
