IDEF Brings Cheers Amid Covid Gloom

IDEF : Aug 5, 2021 - : 7:02 pm

The 15th International Defence Industry Fair (IDEF21) is one of the five biggest defence industry fairs in the world and where Turkish defence industry products are showcased.

“While we are going around the world to showcase our defence technologies, only our larger companies can afford to attend these shows. So, at IDEF, our smaller companies and SMEs get an opportunity to showcase their capabilities,” said Dr. İsmail DEMİR, President of Defence Industries of Turkey.

The IDEF21 is being organised under the auspices of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey, hosted by Ministry of National Defence, under the management and responsibility of the General Directorate of TSKGV and organised by TÜYAP Fairs and Exhibitions Organisation Inc. at TÜYAP Fair Convention and Congress Center.

Since 1993 the event has made great progress in the course of time and has become one of the world’s leading fairs in the field of defence industry. The previous edition of IDEF was attended by 588 delegation members, 1.061 companies and representatives,  seven ships and 76.010 visitors. 

“Our goal in IDEF 2021 will be to increase these numbers reached at IDEF 2019 much higher. As it is known, one of the most important features of IDEF is the negotiation platform established between the meeting offices where official procurement authorities are represented, foreign delegations and participating companies. With the improvements made on the planning and execution of the meetings, I believe that this platform will be used more effectively and we will raise the bar higher,” Sadık PİYADE, acting General manager of Turkish Armed Forces Foundation (TAFF) said.

“On the other hand, in line with the developments in the pandemic, one of our most important goals will be to implement hygiene measures at the maximum level in the fair area and to carry out the activities to be organised during the fair in a healthy way. In this context, our efforts to simplify fair invitations and events continue. As TAFF, we will be very pleased and proud to see the supply authorities, defence industry companies and professional visitors from all over the world among us at IDEF 2021, in İstanbul,” he added.
