Abu Dhabi - Arab Today

The International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) and Naval Defence Exhibition (NAVDEX) and Unmanned Systems Exhibition (UMEX) hosted the official press conference at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
Speaking to assembled journalists, Staff Major General Obaid Al Ketbi, Chairman of the IDEX 2015 Higher Committee, underlined the large support and participation of the international defence community that has boosted the status and role of IDEX as a commercial exhibition since its inauguration in 1993, as well as the growing role of Emirate companies at the show.
