Harris International pens sponsorship agreement for IDEX 2015
Abu Dhabi, May 2014: IDEX LLC (An ADNEC Group Company) has announced a sponsorship agreement with Harris International Inc. for the upcoming IDEX 2015. The deal was signed late last week as the two companies took part in the Special Operations Forces Exhibition & Conference (SOFEX), in Amman, Jordan.
The sponsorship endorses the fact that the UAE is among the most active global participants in the defence and security industry and IDEX attracts the global community to Abu Dhabi.
“For over twenty years, IDEX has been locked in a pursuit of global excellence. Our partnership with Harris only further enhances our offering to provide a global defence event to all exhibitors and visitors”, said IDEX CEO, Saleh Al Marzooqi. “We’re the largest defence exhibition in the MENA region, and together with Harris we’ll create an optimum business environment for solutions providers across the land, air and naval defence sectors.”
"IDEX provides Harris with valuable opportunities to interact with customers from the Middle East and around the world," said Steve Marschilok, regional managing director for Harris in Abu Dhabi. "We look forward to showcasing our leading portfolio of tactical and public safety communications solutions during this exciting event."
IDEX is the MENA region’s largest (133,000² of event space) and most well-attended joint defence industry event. It is a truly international event attracting over 1100 exhibitors from over 50 countries and features over 35 country pavilions. Over 90 per cent of available exhibition space has been reserved by exhibitors for IDEX 2015 which will take place on February 22nd – 26th and provide unparalleled access to the innovative and cutting edge technology that is defining the modern defence industry.
