IDEX 2013 – Showcase Your World Class Solutions to the Largest Defence & Security Show in the Middle East


CADSI, in association with the Canadian Embassy in Abu Dhabi, invites you to participate in a trade mission and exhibition to promote your products and capabilities at IDEX 2013, the largest integrated defence and security show in the Middle East.

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, IDEX 2013 is organized by the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) in association and with the full support of the UAE Armed Forces. 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. Co-located with NAVDEX, which provides a dedicated focus on maritime security, IDEX is a truly tri-service event and in 2011 attracted 1,060 exhibiting companies from 52 countries and over 60,000 attendees.

The defence spending forecast across the MENA region for the 10 years 2010 – 2020 is US$1,233 billion with an annual growth rate of 3.1% compared to Europe 0.9% and the US at -2.3%. Over the same period a similar pattern can be seen for defence procurement, with MENA forecast to grow at a rate of 3.7% compared to Europe 1.6% and the US -1.1%. Over US$280 billion will be spent on new acquisitions across the three services by 2020 in the MENA Region. With defence budgets declining in many countries, now is the time to focus your sales effort to this region.
