Abu Dhabi / WAM
A delegation from Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) will participate in the upcoming Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition and Conference (DIMDEX) 2016, which begins in Doha, Qatar.
ADNEC’s participation is part of its strategy to promote the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX 2017) and the Naval Defence Exhibition and Conference, NAVDEX 2017, to specialised international companies and exhibitors attending the defence event.
Humaid Matar Al Dhaheri, Acting Group CEO of ADNEC, said, “Participation in such large international events provides us with a perfect opportunity to promote IDEX and NAVDEX. Throughout 2015 and 2016, we have been able to attract more exhibitors and specialized companies in the defence sector to our venues thanks to the active participation of our delegations in key industry events.”
He added, “IDEX and NAVDEX are the largest exhibitions and conferences of their kind regionally and internationally. At ADNEC, we are keen on reaching out to our partners by attending reputable global events to encourage them to participate in both events. This will allow them to explore the latest trends in the defence industry.”
Both IDEX and NAVDEX are set to be held from February 19 to 23, 2017 in Abu Dhabi. The events are anticipated to draw more visitors and exhibitors thanks to the huge success of previous editions that witnessed deals worth over AED19.7 billion. The two events provide a perfect platform for companies to showcase their best technological advancements in the defence industry to decision makers, government officials and army commanders from across the globe.
ADNEC offers 133,000 sq m of inter-connected floor space to match the expectations of a wide variety of events and exhibitions. Equipped with modern facilities and built to international standards, the venue attracted 1.8 million people across 369 events in 2015.
