What our Exhibitors think of IDEX

"IDEX is a very, very important show and exhibition for us. It is actually a reflection of our industrial defence capabilities. This growth has been immense, but you know what – If we hadn’t had a platform like IDEX to bring all those technologies together in the beginning and showcase our capabilities, we wouldn’t be here today to talk about the biggest defense industry company in the Middle East and we want to show it here in IDEX.

"IDEX is the ideal platform for us to look for a new partners in order to grow and develop a product that can be sold abroad and locally"
