Why Exhibit?

NAVDEX is the gateway for manufacturers and suppliers to build relationships with influential decision makers within the Middle East and North Africa region.

Showcase equipment, systems and vessels

Companies can showcase equipment, systems and vessels in numerous ways that will engage the international and regional delegations and visitors who attend NAVDEX:

•    Exhibit inside the exhibition hall or an outside pavilion
•    Berth vessels / crafts on the water
•    Display capabilities during live on-water demonstrations
•    Demonstrate systems aboard visiting Naval vessels
•    Showcase equipment on an outside stand / static display

Key partnerships and associations

NAVDEX is organised in partnership with GHQ. This partnership helps to ensure the presence of the key government entities, such as the UAE Navy, CICPA, Coast Guard and Port Authorities.

Visitor and exhibitor engagement

Through high-calibre keynote sessions, prearranged networking events and a senior visitors and international delegations programme, NAVDEX ensures exhibitors meet the region’s government representatives and key decision makers.

Presence of UAE and international warships

NAVDEX has the unique advantage of being able to berth warships alongside the venue. In 2013, NAVDEX welcomed nine warships from UAE, USA, France, UK, Italy and Pakistan. The ships are located at the ADNEC Marina immediately outside the NAVDEX exhibition halls. The vessels enabled exhibitors to showcase their company’s equipment operational on-board.

Vessels and crafts alongside the exhibition stand

Exhibitors can showcase on-water exhibits and berth crafts and vessels at the ADNEC Marina. They will be accessible for viewing by all visitors and boats can be taken out for test runs on the water throughout the exhibition.

Demonstrate equipment to potential clients

NAVDEX exhibitors can include equipment during live choreographed demonstrations that take place daily in front of a grandstand of event attendees.

High profile audience

Every opportunity will be taken to encourage and maximise the engagement between exhibiting companies with the key government buyers and influencers. 

International delegations

International delegations are invited and hosted by GHQ, which ensures that NAVDEX attracts a wealth of international decision-makers from within the naval defence and maritime security industry.
Alongside Ministers, Senior Officers and Chiefs of Navies, NAVDEX will attract key governments and private sectors representatives from the Middle East, Africa, and Asian Subcontinent region.
