IDET 2011 International exhibition of Defence and Security Technologies begins.
On Tuesday 10 May the gates of the 11th International Exhibition of Defence and Security Technologies IDET opens in Brno, one of four majors shows of defence in Europe. Just two days later, the 15th International Fair for Fire and Security Technology and Services PYROS / ISET begins, and the exhibition will remain open during the Saturday 14 May, when they are open to general public. A partial overlap of the exhibitions’ dates responds to current trends in integration and close cooperation of defence and security structures. The new concept offers a comprehensive overview of the whole sphere of military and civilian security as well as the current technologies. This year's key themes include cooperation in the fight against international terrorism, army deployment in natural and industrial disasters and civil protection against current risks.
IDET 2011 begins...
The international importance of the two fairs is demonstrated by the great interest of foreign partners. IDET 2011 is an offer of 369 exhibitors from 26 countries across three continents. Another 179 companies from 21 countries on four continents participate in PYROS / ISET 2011. The national composition of visitors is equally varied - specialists and official military delegations, who accepted the prior invitation of the Ministry of Defence and who will particularly visit the stands of domestic exhibitors. Participation has already been confirmed by delegations from Albania, Italy, Lithuania, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Brazil, Nigeria, United Arab Emirates, Montenegro, Armenia, China, Mongolia, Ghana, Iraq, Malaysia , Saudi Arabia and Ukraine. These VIP visitors from countries of commercial interest for the Central European defence industry confirmed the importance of IDET export promotion and its leading position in the new area of ??the North Atlantic Alliance. Organizers expect that both exhibitions will welcome about thirty thousand people between Tuesday and Saturday, among them at least twelve thousand registered professionals.
