Posted 12 August 2021 · Add Comment

In a mark of formal approval for next year's World Defense Show in Riyadh, the inaugural international security and defence exhibition founded by the General Authority for Military Industries (GAMI) has been granted royal patronage from King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.


Ahmad Al-Ohali, Governor of GAMI, said: “On behalf of GAMI and World Defense Show’s Organising Committee, we are honoured and blessed with the continued support of the Kingdom’s leadership to strengthen the Kingdom’s position at the centre of a more collaborative global defence industry.


“The Royal Patronage is an extension of the leadership’s unwavering support to localizing 50% of military expenditure in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030,” His Excellency added.


World Defense Show will be a global platform for defence experts, industry leaders and manufacturers, enabling massive collaboration opportunities between international and local players, and allowing wider access to Saudi Arabia’s evolving defence and security industries.


The show will take place every two years at a purpose-built venue in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It will feature interoperable defence solutions in the presence of Saudi’s key leadership, international delegations and prominent industry decision-makers from around the world. The show will host more than 30,000 visitors including the world’s top industry experts, who will participate in thought leadership sessions focusing on the future of the industry across air, land, sea, space and security.
