This event, held under the patronage of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, is the leading global event for the defense industry and will showcase the future of defense through advanced technologies.
The event is aligned with the Kingdom’s vision for enhancing the strategic autonomy of the nation and achieving localization of more than 50% of expenditure on defense equipment and services by 2030. World Defense Show aims to create a forum for knowledge exchange and thought leadership, while also highlighting cutting-edge technologies and innovations. It is also an ideal platform for building international partnerships and exploring new investment opportunities.
Investment opportunities are open to manufacturers, suppliers, and international service providers who are passionate about technology transfer, talent development, and strategic partnerships.
Due to the success of the inaugural World Defense Show in 2022, the organizers have reviewed expansion plans to include a third exhibition hall, offering an additional 25% of exhibition space, to complement the two existing main halls. The venue provides unrivaled facilities and features that deliver the very best platforms for connection, communication, and collaboration.
Andrew Pearcey, CEO of World Defense Show, expressed his excitement for the second edition of the show, stating that the team is working tirelessly to deliver a fantastic event with strategically crafted networking programs featuring delegations, governments, global defense industry original equipment manufacturers, and investors. With the expansion of the venue, they aim to accommodate the tremendous growth in demand and to continue improving the quality of the show with every edition.
The World Defense Show in February 2024 promises to be a world-class, future-focused platform for technological innovation, thought leadership, and strategic partnerships in the defense industry.
