Saudi Arabia’s World Defense Show (WDS) has revealed its official venue model at DSEI in London, showcasing a model of the purpose-built venue that will host the inaugural event in March 2022.

With Hall One nearing completion and infrastructure being put in place for Hall Two, the unveiling of the scale model and new renders at the Saudi Pavilion – alongside show founder General Authority for Military Industries (GAMI) and strategic partner Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI) brings the WDS grounds to life for the first time. The venue, on a site spanning 800,000 square metres, will welcome more than 30,000 visitors and 800 exhibitors from March 6-9 next year.

The features of the venue include the world’s first purpose-built runway dedicated to defense events, dedicated exhibition space across two halls, hard standing for ground equipment and dozens of hospitality suites with views over the static display area and runway. Located on the outskirts of Riyadh, the space is custom-built for World Defense Show that will serve as the global stage for defense interoperability,

The centerpiece of the show is a 2.7km-long and 50m-wide purpose-built runway where live demonstrations of air power will fly over static aircraft and land equipment displays. An interactive on-site command and control center, equipped with the latest systems and technologies from the world’s leading defense companies, will showcase integration and interoperability across the various domains.

“We started from a blank slate when designing the venue, so everything is completely purpose-built in line with the requirements of a modern defense event,” said Shaun Ormrod, WDS Chief Executive Officer. “Dedicated spaces have been specifically created to meet the needs of our exhibitors, including a two-kilometer runway, hard standing for ground equipment and a command and control center that facilitates the show theme of interoperability.”
