The International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) is the most strategically important tri-service defence exhibition in the world. Returning between 21 – 25 February, IDEX 2021 will once again demonstrate the latest technological advancements in the industry. Co-located with the region’s leading naval and maritime security trade expo NAVDEX, the show will feature a comprehensive offer in all sectors of defence.

IDEX is the perfect place to meet with key decision makers from the government, military and defence industry, armed forces and key military personnel. Participating at the fair positions your company among the top leaders in defence technologies and solutions. There is also the benefit of global media coverage, given that every edition attracts some 100,000+ visitors and around 1,500 exhibitors.

Unrivalled opportunities will abound at IDEX 2021, both inside and outside of the exhibition halls. Special place in the showcase is reserved for newcomers in the First-Time Exhibitor Zone, granting them a high level of exposure in the MENA region. The presence of international agents will also be significant, with 27 countries represented in dedicated pavilions. Exhibitors will once again have the chance to demonstrate their state-of-the-art offers in live outdoor demonstration areas, while the IDEX Defence Conferences will return as a high-level meeting platform for manufacturers, decision-makers and experts.
