Why Exhibit at Navdex?

In 2019, the region’s leading naval defence and maritime security exhibition (NAVDEX) will return to Abu Dhabi and will have the prestigious honour of the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and organised by IDEX LLC (an ADNEC Group Company) in association with the UAE Armed Forces GHQ.

NAVDEX is held alongside IDEX, the International Defence Exhibition and Conference. The show is held in a purpose-built exhibition hall featuring:
• ADNEC Marina for visiting naval ships
• a pontoon for small water craft
• daily water demonstrations
• an outdoor display area

NAVDEX provides a dedicated and focused platform for international naval defence and maritime security companies to showcase and promote the latest in naval, maritime and coastal security technology & equipment - including sea and air craft. The International VIPs including a high concentration of MENA and GCC countries in attendance at NAVDEX provides you with the best option for finding new opportunities as well as strengthening existing relationships.

Why Exhibit in the USA Partnership Pavilion?

Kallman Worldwide’s decades of experience organizing the U.S. presence at international shows around the world, including a number of shows in the UAE builds on America's advantage to help you stand out at the show. Our USA Partnership Pavilion is your on-site headquarters at NAVDEX: a destination for buyers, a business hub for exhibitors and a forum for all to share ideas and insights. In 2019, in addition to our suite of end-to-end show services, Pavilion exhibitors will benefit from a prominent, high-traffic hall location, access to public- and private-sector VIPs and influencers, exclusive business intelligence from industry thought-leaders and operatives and exclusive networking events.
