The Clarion Events’ portfolio of defence and security events is acknowledged as the world’s leading forums where high level government officials and senior military personnel converge. Leading global equipment and services providers meet to share ideas, discuss industry developments, conduct business, develop partnerships and network for future growth.
Whilst military systems and technology are at the core of the industry and the events, the sector is also diversifying and adapting to meet the changing needs of the world. In addition to the threat of war, national security can be threatened by humanitarian disasters resulting in mass displacement of people or food and water shortages, terrorism or pandemic.
All defence and security exhibitions can serve only the legitimate defence and security industry which is the most tightly regulated industry in the world. This means exhibitors and visitors must adhere to the highest regulatory scrutiny, complying with international laws, treaties and conventions.
The economic benefits are not just about the defence industry. The 5,000+ attending VIDSE occupy over 10,000 room-nights at Vietnam’s hotels during the week of the event, generating direct benefit to Vietnam's economy in the process, even before taking into account all of their associated expenditure on travel, restaurants and the like across the capital during their stay.
