With the conference attended by up to 500 people - mostly flag officers and senior government representatives - this seminal part of IDEAS 2012 brings together a concentration of the foremost minds and key decision makers in global defence.
At its last occurrence, senior delegations from Brazil, France, Germany, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, UK and USA amongst 34 other countries were present, making this a truly global and dynamic forum with collective billions of dollars of purchasing power together in one room.
Read what past attendees had to say:
This is our first time here and we are highly impressed. IDEAS has helped us learn thoroughly about Pakistan's military materials and production capabilities which came as a surprise to us. Events like these are important to host and attend because being present here sets a vivid image of the country and help us gain a better understanding of Pakistan.
Lt. Gen. Edward Wizniewsky
Pakistan' s armed forces have been our customers for over a few decades which is why IDEAS is very important to us. Events like these give us the right platform for recognition and also help us improve existing relations, establish new contacts and share knowledge.
SVP Sales and Customer Relations
We have been associated with Pakistan's defence forces for a long time now and it feels very good to be here. It's a very well organized exhibition with exchange of contacts, information, technology and knowledge.
