Theme 2016: “Internationalisation of Defence and Security”

Symposium
The annual NIDV Symposium & Exhibition is being held this year on 17 November 2016 in the AHOY exhibition halls in Rotterdam and is a unique event for professionals that covers the entire field of security. The event also highlights the latest technological developments in that field. In addition to companies and knowledge institutes, the ministries involved, armed forces, Defence Materiel Organisation, Security Services, Security Region, Coast Guard and National Police Corps also have stands in the exhibition.

Exhibition
The annual NIDV exhibition is the leading meeting point for those interested in conducting business in the field of defence and security. All those involved, either directly or indirectly, in the purchase and sale of products and services attend the exhibition. Manning a stand is not a PR stunt, but a worthwhile investment. It makes it possible to make agreements over the course of one day that would otherwise take weeks or months.

Large companies participate because they are an inextricable part of this sector. Other companies realise that it is relatively easy to personally approach otherwise difficult-to-approach decision makers, thanks in part to the active assistance provided by the NIDV.

The focus of one of the days is on talks with officials responsible for government orders and international companies with a compensation obligation. There is also plenty of opportunity for companies to do business together. The government also participates with a stand at the exhibition.

It is the only comprehensive event for industry, politics, government agencies and knowledge institutes in the Benelux with a focus on defence and security. All of those in the business or looking to join the business will be there.

Exhibitors
In addition to the conference presentations, a large number of companies also present the possibilities they offer in the defence and security market. It is an exhibition with a focus on finding strategic partners with whom collaboration is necessary to procure orders and, in particular, partial orders. Your organisation cannot afford to miss out. You can take advantage of unique opportunities to make new contacts, present your company, services and products to a large audience, as well as meet with your existing business partners.
