VIDSE: Vietnam’s First Tri-service Defense Exhibition Launched


Clarion Events and Hadifa have partnered to launch the Vietnam International Defense and Security Exhibition (VIDSE).

Held with the full support of Vietnam Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Public Security and Ministry of Industry and Trade, it will be the first time a large scale tri-service defense exhibition has been held in Vietnam.

The event will take place between 17-19 March at the National Convention Center, Hanoi, Vietnam. It will feature over 120 exhibiting companies and 5,000 plus visitors from the entire ASEAN defense supply chain.

The event has been launched as a direct response to Vietnam’s increasing investment in defense over the last 5 years. In 2016, the nation’s defense spending increased by 25% to over $5bn for the first time ever. Vietnam has the 4th largest expenditure in Southeast Asia and has significant acquisition programmes in place for tank, infantry fighting vehicle, SP Artillery and armoured personnel Carriers.

Alex Soar, International Development Director, Clarion Events said “this is the event that the ASEAN region has been demanding for years. Defense spending in Vietnam is ever increasing, and they are looking to establish serious relationships with suppliers to fulfil their capability requirements”
