Set to run from 25th to 27th February 2018 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, the dual exhibition is co-organized by Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) and the UAE Armed Forces General Headquarters (GHQ). The events will see a 25 percent increase in exhibition space compared to previous editions.

Building on the success of UMEX 2016 the Middle East region is ready to welcome the 3rd edition of UMEX in 2018, with a broader scope which will reflect the growth and investment in unmanned systems technology in the UAE and GCC countries.

UMEX and SIMTEX exhibition will be attended by many delegations from the Middle East, including decision makers and military representatives from the the GCC (UAE, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia), North Africa and the Asian Subcontinent countries. The event will also attract visitors from around the world, including officials and decision makers from Asia, Europe, America and Australasia.

The Official Delegations include individuals and representatives from Defense Ministers, Chiefs of Staff and Army, Navy and Air force Commanders. Also attending UMEX are local, regional and international high profile visitors and officials from Government, industry and the Armed Forces.

Since UMEX and SimTEX were delinked from the International Defense Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) to become standalone biennial events, they have emerged as the leading platforms for the full spectrum of civil defense and military segments, such as marine, air and land search and rescue, as well as aerial photography.

UMEX and the Simulation & Training Exhibition and Conference are ideally positioned to provide a professional platform for manufacturers to meet operators and establish lucrative business relationships while promoting the defense, environmental, civil and humanitarian benefits of unmanned systems.
