On November 18 we would like to welcome you in Rotterdam at the NEDS 2021! We are ready to create a safe and innovative event and most places on the exhibition floor have been sold. We can therefore now say with certainty: NEDS 2021 is a go! At the same time there are still exhibition places available. Grab your chance now.
The NEDS is the largest business event for the Dutch defense and security sector and the best time to meet manufacturers, users, and your network. After 1.5 years without physical meetings, it is extra important to be visible and to meet your contacts. Therefore, book one of the last seats on the exhibition floor and make sure you are there!
This year the NEDS will be enriched with an Innovation Challenge. On November 17, selected startups will compete to present their solution to operational innovation issues raised by the Ministry of Defense.
The two Innovation Challenges of 2021 are drone-swarming technology and the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier under operational conditions, including transport and safe storage. The winner is announced during the plenary session the next day. You can meet about 20 other startups at the Innovation Square during NEDS.
