SMG, a specialized events consultancy, has a proven regional track record of delivering world-class events. Designated as the official conference of IDEX, the IDEX Defence Conferences will take an inside look into the latest defence technology across land, sea and air.
The three day IDEX Defence Conferences , which begin on February 21st at the Armed Forces Officers Club, will run alongside of IDEX 2015, enabling attendees to establish and strengthen relationships with government departments, businesses and armed forces throughout the region, and listen to key influencers speak on hot topics currently affecting the industry.
Commenting on the event, Saleh Al Marzooqi, IDEX Chief Executive Officer said: “IDEX Defence Conferences represents the ideal supplemental platform to IDEX. It provides visitors and exhibitors an additional platform to engage and connect ahead of IDEX and speak with key decision makers from throughout government, military and defence. The three conferences under IDEX Defence Conferences gives attendees the opportunity to have in-depth discussions on the industry’s biggest challenges and provides a platform to begin driving potential solutions.”
He continued: “I’m pleased to be working with Streamline Marketing Group, this year. They have been a staple in putting together some of the largest and most successful conferences across the UAE. Most notably, their work with the Global Aerospace Summit where they partnered with Mubadala. I look forward to our new partnership in making IDEX Defence Conferences a leading strategic event alongside IDEX 2015”.
Much like IDEX 2015, the event will also feature a Naval Defence and Unmanned Systems Conference, akin to NAVDEX and UMEX. This allows for a broad range of topics and will allow participants to hear from many prestigious guests, including: Defence Ministers, Chiefs of Staff, senior commanders from the UAE Armed Forces, government officials, senior decision makers and other commanding officers from international militaries.

We have strong regional experience working with many other respected exhibitions and conferences, and look to put our expertise to work alongside IDEX 2015. The IDEX Defence Conferences will host high level conversations with some of the world’s top defence minds, and is a great opportunity for attendees to maximise their time at IDEX”.
