International Defence Exhibition and Seminar (IDEAS) is one of the mega regional events; biennially organized in Pakistan by Defence Export Promotion Organization (DEPO), Ministry of Defence Production (MoDP). A continuous success story since year 2000, IDEAS has emerged as an iconic event on the canvas of global defence exhibitions. Today, it is regarded as an established rendezvous for convergence of international defence exhibitors, delegates, security analysts and top level policy planners.
IDEAS is an ultimate platform to showcase the innovation in defence and security technologies of tomorrow; with a variety of weapon systems and equipment on display. A number of conferences and a capstone seminar are its hallmark events for evaluation of defence and security outlook of the future. The event also brings together international manufacturers and suppliers of products and services to explore new avenues of defence cooperation through joint ventures, outsourcing and collaboration.
IDEAS truly demonstrates a successful public-private partnership model. Its participation and international attendance is indeed manifestation of our deeply embedded and mutually beneficial relations with international fraternity. In addition, the high profile of visiting delegates adds to its prestige and stature. In fact, IDEAS is a shared vision for global peace, stability and prosperity.
IDEAS 2020, our 11th eventful edition is scheduled to be held at Expo Centre Karachi from 24-27 November 2020.
I look forward to welcoming the distinguished participants.
