It is organized jointly by International Fair Plovdiv JSC and Foundation Hemus’95 on the territory of the fair village.

Beside the features of the range itself, there are demonstrated the latest achievements of companies which work in the field of light arms, artillery, antitank, air defense and missile armament.

The demonstration of gear and weapons of the “Soldier of the Future” is yet one more event that attracts visitors and exhibitors.

The International Defense Equipment Exhibition HEMUS 2006 31.05.2006 - 03.06.2006
Hemus is the old Thracian name of the Balkan Mountain, which unites the northern and southern parts of the country. This majestic mountain was the shelter of all warriors and rebels who fought against the oppressors. Uncountable are the heroes who defended to the death the freedom of our people and shed their blood within its bosom. This is the reason why in the historic memory and the art of the Bulgarian people the ancient Thracian name Hemus has become a symbol of eternity, freedom and strong spirit like the Balkan is standing eternally and proudly in the middle of the Bulgarian land.
