The International Defence Exhibition and Conference, IDEX, is the most strategically important tri-service defence exhibition in the world.
IDEX is the only international defence exhibition and conference in the MENA region demonstrating the latest technology across land, sea and air sectors of defence. It is a unique platform to establish and strengthen relationships with government departments, businesses and armed forces throughout the region.
IDEX is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and is organised by the IDEX LLC in association and with the full support of the UAE Armed Forces.
The 2019 conference covers an ambitious agenda centered around four inter-related focus areas: Economics, Security & Stability, Offset, and Innovation & Artificial Intelligence.
Discussion in each of these areas will bring together an impressive mix of best-in-class experts, renowned industry and innovation leaders, academicians, senior flag officers, and defence decision-makers. Our multi-disciplinary panels will explore the most pressing challenges to and opportunities for a shared future of stability, security and prosperity in a world struggling with several transformative and destabilizing transitions.
IDEX continues to attract a growing wealth of international decision-makers from within the defence industry, alongside key representatives from governments, armed forces and the key military personnel. Strong representation from GCC and MENA countries make IDEX the prime platform to reach such important audience.
