Posted 18 October 2017 · Add Comment

The first edition of Bahrain International Defence Exhibition and Conference covering air, land and sea is taking place on October 16-18 at Bahrain International Exhibition & Convention Centre.

Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Commander of Bahrain Royal Guard and High Committee Chairman of BIDEC 2017, the organising Committee, said that hosting a major event such as BIDEC is a translation of the aspirations of the wise leadership, and has assumed a privileged position on the global events map in various fields, especially in the field of defense, to be known since ancient times as the crossroads of civilisation and a land of peace.

He pointed out that BIDEC is the first tri-service defence exhibition in the region, covering land, sea and air.

BIDEC provides a unique opportunity to meet experts, specialists and representatives of major defence equipment companies and all three services in one place. It will also serve as a platform for the world's leading companies to showcase the latest defence systems and modern technologies. BIDEC will also provide the military authorities with the opportunity to access the latest technology, equipment and hardware.

BIDEC will host a number of features at various sites across the country that will strengthen Bahrain’s position as a leading destination in hosting international events and enhance the role of the exhibition, which will include Parachute Demonstrations, Shooting Demonstrations, Military Vehicle Demonstrations and a Warship Display.

Sheikh Nasser added that BIDEC is experiencing heavy participation of the largest international companies in the defence industry, indicating BIDEC’s unparalleled success which will bring together more than 50 senior military and political leaders and officials from friendly and allied countries, with more than 180 exhibitors and international manufacturers and suppliers of the most advanced equipment, technology and military systems, as well as 115 display stands at the exhibition, attracting local, regional and international audience of key decision-makers from governments, armies and defence industries from more than 50 countries.
