About the event
IDEX is another exhibition that has managed to make a full return with a physical edition during the coronavirus pandemic in 2021. The latest edition saw a remarkable turnout and proved why live trade events are still powerful forces when it comes to sales and procurement. ADNEC Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company has already confirmed the next edition.
IDEX 2023 will be run at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from February 19th until February 23rd. The event concept is currently in development. What we know is that organisers will upgrade COVID-19 protective measures already put in place. The main objective is to minimize the spread of the virus on the exhibition grounds.
IDEX stands short for International Defence Exhibition & Conference. It’s a major international exhibition for the defence sector considering and performs a special role for markets in the Middle East. Over the course of nearly three decades, IDEX has done much to local consolidate markets and bring international business opportunities to the region. You can say the exhibition is a central meeting point for world powers from the West and East. It’s also one of the biggest platforms for the procurement of defence technology and equipment, and visitors have access to all the newest innovations on the market. The event is held every two years in Abu Dhabi, UAE and shares the stage at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center alongside NAVDEX, which is the Naval Defence Exhibition respectively.
As we’ve already covered, IDEX is an instrumental exhibition for the defence sector and nowhere is this so apparent as in the product portfolio. The exhibition halls cover rockets, tanks, guns and other weapons, ammunition, military equipment, warships and protective gear. Basically, the full value chain is represented under one roof. This is why exhibitors will have a chance to meet with high-ranking personnel from government departments, the armed and naval forces, and the private sector. Chiefs of staff, defence ministers, and army, navy and air force commanders are a common sight during the exhibition. Although you have representation from European markets, the biggest numbers in terms of attendance come from UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, North Africa, the Asian Subcontinent and the GCC.
Did You Know?
What makes IDEX a standout event in its industry is the fact that organisers have created a large demo area, where one can observe tactical weapons, military vehicles and other equipment in full action. You don’t just get to see the new models, but also experience their performance. IDEX is under the direct patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE. Last but not least, we should highlight the International Defence Conference (IDC) held during IDEX. It’s a major high point for the exhibition as a whole and dives deep into technological advancements and disruptive technologies. You have thought leaders, policy makers, influencers, researchers and futurists opening many possible futures ahead of us.

Thank you Megan,
The Novotel was absolutely fine, thank you for your follow up. We do not attend WTM, but appreciate you asking.
With kind regards,
It's a budget hotel do not expect much, they provide clean room but small room size. The hotel not far from Messe Duesseldorf by car but if you want to take public transport between the hotel and Messe Duesseldorf it's not convenient. But if you prepare to take taxi so it's not far from the place about 15 minutes
I am very happy to have the help of Travel to Fairs ltd!
They found a good hotel – good value for money - although it was very late
the clients feedback is very plain and simple: they say that everything went fine. :-)
Thank you very much
Thank you for email. Everything went well during our stay. The hotel allowed early check-in. Room is new and clean, but is too small, and the hotel is located in good location as it is convenient to public transportation and walking distance to the old town. Only few points, it's a bit noisy surrounding(from the road), especially at night. The room does not seal and not well sound protected. With the room rate it would be good if the hotel served BF. Thank you.
The team of Travel To Fairs Ltd. has helped me a lot, met my needs (research for an accomodation for my guests, and changes of the last minutes); the hotel, a three stars category 20 minutes from the fair of Trondheim, was very clean and the staff very helpfull and kind.
Convenient location to the Messe Duesseldorf and to the Airport. Next to the KAMPS bakery who opens at Sunday morning.
All went well, your support as always has been perfect.
