IDEX 2023 awaits

The International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) is one of the key international events for its sector. IDEX 2023, the 16th edition of the defence expo, will be held on 19 – 23 February 2023 in Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). Alongside the co-located naval and maritime security trade show NAVDEX, it will once again create a comprehensive offer that spans the land, sea and air sectors of defence.

IDEX is must-attend event for professionals looking to establish and strengthen relationships with government departments, businesses and armed forces from the MENA region and abroad. Over 1,300 exhibitors participate in the showcase, filling 12 exhibition halls with cutting-edge offers in the areas of weapons and ordnance, vehicles and ships, electronic warfare systems, simulation and training technologies and more. The exhibition allows you to present your innovations to over 100,000 visitors including global leaders, policy and decision makers, defence contractors and over 100 international delegations. The formation of strategic partnerships and the signings of deals worth billions of dollars make each IDEX edition an unmissable event that shapes the industry's future.

The high-profile IDEX programme also features a line-up of special events. Exhibitors have the chance to demonstrate their state-of-the-art offers in live outdoor demonstration areas. The International Defence Conference brings thought leaders, policy makers and researchers together to discuss leading technological advancements and disruptive technologies.
