The biennial IDEX International Defence Exhibition and Conference in Abu Dhabi is ideally placed to attract the world’s defense contractors keen to market the latest military technology to the dynamic Middle Eastern and Asian defense markets. Ahmad Humaid Al Mazrouie, director general of the official show organizer General Exhibitions Corp., pointed out the unique relationship between the firm and the armed forces of the UAE, which exhibitors can draw on to access the market. “Our connection with the armed forces gives us some insight into the products and technologies that can best be deployed in a desert environment such as the Gulf,” he said. IDEX 2007 will be held Feb. 18 to 22, 2007, at Abu Dhabi’s International Exhibition and Conference Centre. This year’s show attracted more than 900 exhibitors from 50 countries and Al Mazrouie is confident that these figures will be exceeded in 2007.
