World Defense Show advertorial
Naval interoperability in focus
With 85 nations expected to participate in the show, Saudi Arabia’s World Defense Show will serve as the global stage for defense interoperability across land, air, sea, space, and security. Founded by the General Authority for Military Industries (GAMI), the show provides a world-class meeting environment for industry shapers from around the world, while connecting the global defense industry to the Kingdom’s defense and security ecosystem.
So far, World Defense Show has attracted hundreds of global and regional security entities including Embraer, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin, NORINCO, and Rolls Royce. Meanwhile, senior decision-makers, defense ministers, and chiefs of military staff will be among 300 influential industry figures invited to convene at the Riyadh Defense Summit on day zero of the event.
During the show dates, the latest naval technologies and weaponry will be revealed through augmented reality demonstrations, with visitors encouraged to explore how naval forces interoperate with other defense and security systems. The World Defense Show program will also include a series of conferences and thought-leadership seminars exploring the future of naval defense.
Through curated networking events such as Meet the Buyer, Meet the KSA Government, and the Investor-Investee program, up-and-coming defense ventures will be connected with investors who are specifically looking to explore new opportunities. More than 100 local defense firms will also be present at the event, allowing for more regional dialogues and defense partnerships.
An unprecedented opportunity for global partnerships
The World Defense show offers an unrivaled opportunity for learning and partnerships for naval industry professionals. Visitors will also experience interoperable technologies across all five defense domains through a 23,200 sqm exhibition area. An interactive Command and Control Center will enable visitors to experience the latest naval defense systems in real-time.
In addition, the entry ticket includes a free multi-entries visa to Saudi Arabia valid for 1 year, with a maximum stay of 30 days. As an added benefit, those who sign up for World Defense Show are automatically registered for a complimentary multi-entry visa, valid for one year – enabling further critical partnerships well beyond the show dates.
International visitors are strongly encouraged to register as early as possible to allow time for visa processing. Online tickets sales end in February 2022.
