D-BOX at APMBC meeting, 3-6 December 2013, Geneva, Switzerland|2013-12-14

The D-BOX Side Event took place on 6th December 2013 at 13:00 PM during the 13MSP AMPBC Meeting in Geneva, Switzerland.


The Thirteenth Meeting of the States Parties to the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention (APMBC) was organised at the Palais des Nations in Geneva from Monday 2nd to Thursday 5th December 2013.  On the following day (Friday 6th December) there was a diplomatic conference to which the APMBC delegates were invited. 


D-BOX had an exhibition stand throughout the week and hosted a Side Event at lunchtime on the Friday from 13.00hrs until 14.30hrs.  The intention was to raise the profile of the project within the global demining community and to take advantage of the presence of around 500 subject matter experts to gather perspectives, opinions and experiences.
