World Defense Show
WDS in numbers
GAMI founded World Defense Show to cement Saudi Arabia’s position at the heart of the global defense sector and strengthen relationships with existing and potential partners. The first World Defense Show is scheduled to take place between 6-9 March 2022 in Riyadh.
Saudi Arabia is an ideal host for a defense show of this scale given its strategic location at the center of three continents and global supply chains, as well as its status as one of the world’s largest defense markets.
World Defense Show will support the Kingdom’s vision to localize more than 50% of its military expenditure by 2030, especially by promoting further collaboration with governments and defense manufacturers around the world.
Over four days, the show will demonstrate interoperability across the 5 main defense domains: land, air, sea, security, and satellite in an unprecedented way, creating a unique platform for leaders to address one of the sector’s biggest challenges.
Through exhibits, live demos and virtual technologies, World Defense Show will showcase pioneering and innovative solutions offering exhibitors and attendees access to leading local and global industry shapers and decision makers.
Alongside demonstrations of high-tech integrated defense solutions, the show will feature thought leadership platforms, conferences and educational seminars with a focus on next generation defense systems.
