Exhibitor Profile

While the main purpose of this exhibition is to promote the capabilities of the defence and security industry, it will also provide a meeting place where entrepreneurs, scientists, academics, military and government officials can share knowledge, and experiences and exchange ideas on the latest technological trends in their field.



FEINDEF 23 provides commercial development opportunities for participants, giving them the tools necessary to take full advantage of their presence at the fair: a detailed online and published catalogue, meeting schedule, helpful website and mobile application and individual networking opportunities.



In a world characterised increasingly by opportunity and innovation, this trade fair represents a broad spectrum dedicated to technology and research. Startups can have their own space to exhibit their new initiatives and dual purpose projects. An opportunity to see how SMEs improve their participation in the sector.



A large number of international delegations, over 75 attended FEINDEF 21, makes for interesting meetings between institutional authorities and SME managers.



FEINDEF is a forum geared towards a broad and multidisciplinary audience. Entrepreneurs, scientists, academics, universities, public research bodies, professionals from the Public Administration, industry, the Armed Forces and the State Security Forces as well as Spanish and international public and private organisations, can all share information, knowledge and experiences and exchange ideas on the latest technological trends in a sector that leads the way in innovation and the generation of transversal knowledge across sectors.
