Posted 9 February 2021 · Add Comment

Build-preparations have begun at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre for the internal and external exhibitions, as well as the live demonstration areas, for IDEX and NAVDEX 2021, taking place between 21 and 25 February.

The Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) organised a tour for local and international media representatives, sharing with them the latest preparations, protocols, and precautionary measures implemented by ADNEC, in cooperation with the Ministry of Defense and the General Command of the UAE Armed Forces.


Humaid Matar Al Dhaheri, managing director and Group CEO of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC), said: “The beginning of our build-up phase for the internal and external exhibition stands for IDEX and NAVDEX represents the culmination of the significant efforts exerted by ADNEC’s teams over the past few months. Our ability to host this exhibition demonstrates the confidence of the international community in ADNEC’s ability to organise this exceptional edition on schedule. Such confidence is indicated in the participation of the largest defence companies from across the world in this exhibition.”

Al Dhaheri added: “The high participation levels at IDEX and NAVDEX demonstrates the leading position which these exhibitions have found reached in their twenty-seventh year. It further indicates the wider international interest in these vital events, and how the UAE’s defence sector has reached an advanced global stage.”


“ADNEC, in cooperation with a wide range of national institutions, has prepared the facilities and infrastructure of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, following leading global standards. We have developed a range of health and safety protocols for the health of all participants at both exhibitions, following the processes implemented by local and global health authorities. Such measures have been put in place to meet the needs of all our participants, as well as ensuring this event befits the reputation and stature of the UAE at both the regional and the international level.”


Saeed Bin Khadim Al Mansoori, executive director at Capital Events, a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Company, commented: “IDEX and NAVDEX 2021 will enjoy a high turnout from critical international defence companies: a fact of which we are very proud. The current edition will see five new nations participating for the first time in the two exhibitions.


“We have now completed the reservations of external and internal exhibition spaces for IDEX and NAVDEX. Both exhibitions will see a wide range of official delegations from a high number of countries, alongside decision-makers and specialists in these vital sectors.”
