Saudi Arabian World Defense Show 2022 officially opened registration to trade visitors

Industry attendees can now sign up for passes to the inaugural World Defense Show 2022 to be held under the Patronage of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, which will take place near the Kingdom’s capital city of Riyadh from 6-9 March 2022. The defense exhibition will serve as the global stage for defense interoperability, a topic that has become a growing challenge for decision-makers around the world, connecting all five key domains – air, land, sea, space and security. It is the first event to put KSA on the map as a global defense hub, gathering peers and partners from the east and west to work together.

The show will be held in a state-of-the-art venue on a site spanning 800,000 square meters and is set to welcome more than 30,000 visitors and 800 exhibitors across four days. Hundreds of global defense companies have already signed up for exhibition space so far, including General Dynamics, Leonardo, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Rolls-Royce.

Throughout DSEI 2021 in London, the Saudi Pavilion has been a central point for visitors to learn more about that opportunity from a senior-level delegation including event founder General Authority for Military Industries (GAMI) and strategic partner Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI).

In line with the reform that the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 economic diversification plan outlines, Saudi Arabia is rebalancing defense spending by increasing localization to 50% over the next decade – with World Defense Show unlocking the opportunity for exhibitors and attendees to be part of the next phase of growth.

The biennial event will enable the industry to keep pace with developments across defense and technology. The speed at which these developments take place compels the industry to cooperate across borders and domain expertise to generate opportunities throughout the defense value chain.
