Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi will usher in the first international exhibition of defense industry and arms EDEX-2018, which aims to become the largest event in this sector in the region.

The dates of the exhibition were selected taking into account the schedule of international events of this nature in order to give the possibility of major exhibitors to prepare properly and deliver the necessary equipment.

The exhibition will feature 19 national sections. Just on display, expect about 10 thousand visitors from among senior military officials, arms manufacturers and other professionals in the defense industry.

Currently the largest in the Middle East and North Africa is the exhibition of arms and military equipment IDEX, which is held every two years in the UAE capital Abu Dhabi since 1993.
