The Conference is very unique in several ways. First, that the COAS is much more interested in the drive to reposition the Corps. He believes the conference is an avenue to strategize for the transformation drive.
Secondly, the Conference is central to the blueprint of the CC Edn which intended to give the roadmap for all to move the Corps forward.
