Recognized as the Summit of Business and Defense, the 8th edition of ISDEF is it set to be the largest defense and security exhibition ever held in Israel.
Since 2007, ISDEF, the premier international defense and security expo, has been catering to the needs of the Military, Police, Special Forces, and HLS by exposing them to the products and solutions provided by innovative defense and security companies worldwide. The 8th edition of ISDEF will take place from June 6-8, 2017 at the Tel Aviv Convention Center in Tel Aviv, Israel.
As a top national priority, defense and security in Israel are more than just exportable commodities. The strategic realities that Israel faces dictate the need for close cooperation, communication and innovation.
ISDEF is an event that brings the relevant decision makers and practitioners together to enhance international strategic cooperation and dialogue. Our exhibition highlights the achievements and strengths of Israel and provides a perfect stage for Israel’s well-earned worldwide reputation as a key player in the global defense and security market.
With an expected 250 exhibiting companies and 15,000 visitors from across the globe, ISDEF 2017 will maintain its position as the largest defense and security exhibition in Israel and the only international trade show for the defense and security industry. 48% of exhibitors at ISDEF are international companies and 86% of attendees have buying power!
