A large contingent of leading U.S. defense manufacturers are exhibiting at MSPO, taking place September 6-9 in Kielce, Poland, to showcase the full range of products and services they can provide U.S. allies looking to enhance their security posture.
The USA Partnership Pavilion at MSPO is being organized for the 20th year by the professional trade event management company Kallman Worldwide, in close cooperation with numerous government agencies, including the U.S. Departments of Defense, Commerce and State.
In announcing the Pavilion, Kallman Worldwide President and CEO Tom Kallman said: “Now more than ever, our European allies are looking to the U.S. defense industry to supply the cutting-edge technologies they require to maintain their qualitative advantage over potential adversaries.”
“We are proud of the U.S. companies who have stepped forward to join the USA Partnership Pavilion at MSPO, and extend an open invitation to government officials, and potential private sector business partners, from throughout Europe to visit them at the show,” he added.
According to Kallman, “many companies exhibiting within the Pavilion are launching new products and services at MSPO and are eager to establish new partnerships.” As an example, he cites ExecDefense USA launching its FreshTac Full-Face Gas Mask at MSPO, with opportunities for visitors to try-on the mask. This product is one of ExecDefense USA’s newest tactical gas mask products, aiming to help protect against a variety of NBC and CBRN chemical and airborne threats that account for an extremely high level of demobilization during military combat activities and law enforcement activities.
The Pavilion also hosts BlackBar Engineering, Boeing, General Dynamics, and PEI-Genesis, along with 22 other U.S. exhibitors. There will be a wide range of American air displays at the event including the AH-64 Apache - ZF-11 by Boeing, the AH-1Z Viper - ZG-21 and the UH-1Y Venom - ZG-21 by BELL, and the Abrams - ZG-40 by General Dynamics Land Systems.
Team USA also features three custom builds by Kallman’s Creative Services including General Dynamics, Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, and Ford Global Fleet Sales.
MSPO is Europe’s third-largest defense industry trade show, organized by the Ministry of National Defence (MND) through Targi Kielce, in partnership with government and private sector stakeholders to promote the Polish defense and security economy. Its 29th edition hosted 400 companies from 28 countries across 20,629 square meters of exhibition space and was attended by 10,701 visitors and guests from 41 countries along with 31 foreign delegations from 27 countries. This year, it is expected to attract even greater numbers across the four-day exhibition.
In addition to a physical presence at the four-day event, USA Partnership Pavilion exhibitors are featured at Sourcehere.com – the digital home of the USA Partnership Pavilion Exhibitor Directory. The digital directory features a searchable Pavilion database with interactive tools to help users connect with exhibitors before, during, and after the exhibition.
