(Abu Dhabi) – The International Defence Exhibition and conference (IDEX) closed its doors on the largest exhibition in the event’s two decade history, with 1.112 exhibiting companies from 59 countries and over 80,000 visitors. It also marks the close of the second Naval Defence Exhibition, (NAVDEX) which doubled in size since its inception with over 80 exhibitors. During the exhibitions, the UAE Armed Forces signed 55 defence contracts worth a collective Dh14 billion, reinforcing the nation’s commitment to upholding an advanced and peaceful defence infrastructure.
“The UAE is proud to host IDEX, the largest land, air and sea defence exhibition in in the MENA region and one of the most strategically significant defence exhibitions on the world stage,” said Major General Obaid Al Ketbi, Head of the IDEX Higher Organising Committee. Reflecting the strategic significance of the exhibition, exhibitors from 2013 have already booked more than 50% of the exhibition area for IDEX and NAVDEX 2015. While plans for IDEX and NAVDEX 2015 are currently beginning, the next NAVDEX will include an expanded promenade and a deeper canal, allowing capacity to host larger visiting vessels directly at the exhibition site.
