The 10th International Defence Exhibition and Conference is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).
This year’s conference and exhibition brought together 1060 exhibitors in what is the largest defense and military exhibit in the Middle East.
Although the political climate in the region has taken some interesting turns, the major geopolitical players in the region will spend as much as 26% of GDP on defense and military. This year the UA fielded 169 exhibitors; accounting for about 12,000 square meters of display. Like Jordan, the UAE has made impressive gains in the development of a domestic defense industry.
