IDEF Istanbul 2023

IDEF Istanbul 2023

Under the patronage of the Turkish Ministry of Defense, the International Defense Industry Fair (IDEF) takes place every two years at the Tüyap Fair Convention & Congress Center in Istanbul, now ranking as the fifth-largest defense trade show worldwide. At this significant information and communication platform for the industry, selected trade visitors can gain an overview of the latest developments in ground, naval, and air defense by presenting their invitation card. Exhibits include vehicles, military equipment, training and simulation, as well as measures for transport and logistics support. Defense equipment of Turkish production is also gaining increasing importance. Strategically located at the junction between continents, Istanbul is an ideal location for hosting IDEF, particularly considering the political situation at Turkey’s borders and the North African coastal regions.

The spacious Tüyap Fair Convention & Congress Center offers all the amenities and technical standards of a modern exhibition center. The organizer of IDEF is Tüyap Fairs and Exhibitions Organization Inc. This organization is responsible for planning, organizing, and conducting the fair in collaboration with relevant partners and authorities, including the Turkish Foundation for Defense Industries (SSM) and the Turkish Ministry of Defense. In summary, IDEF provides a vital platform for the global defense industry, taking place every two years in Istanbul. Here, new technologies and innovations can be presented, and business contacts can be established.

On the whole the organisers welcomed on the 4 days of the fair, from 17. August to 20. August 2021, about 1238 exhibitors from 53 countries and 68795 visitors from 94 countries on the IDEF in Istanbul.
