From Elite Group Lebanon Correspondent at IDEX 2011:
First held in 1993, IDEX (International Defence Exhibition & Conference) is the largest tri-service defence exhibition in the Middle East and North Africa region. IDEX takes place biennially under the patronage of HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and is organised by ADNEC (Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company) in association with the UAE Armed Forces GHQ. Defence deals worth a combined 18.5 billion dirhams in contract value were announced by the UAE Armed Forces at the last IDEX in 2009.
IDEX 2011 marks the show’s 10th anniversary and will take place 20th – 24th February next year encompassing indoor, outdoor and marine exhibit areas at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
