SOFEX brings together small and medium-sized enterprises as well as major international manufacturers to meet with key military and government decision makers from around the globe. The fundamental purpose is to provide governments with the ideal opportunity to find solutions on how to combat terrorism and to keep their countries safe, as well as offering the defense industry a wide array of potential clientele from the international community.
Delegates attending SOFEX usually include heads of state, defense ministers, chiefs of armed forces, special operations commanders and defense procurement directorates from across the region, and every corner of the globe.
The launching of new innovations and equipment is a regular feature at SOFEX, ensuring an action packed event which is complimented by a wide range of tactical, live firing and vehicle mobility displays.
The conference, which will be taking place from May 9th to 12th, 2016 in Jordan, encompasses a series of profuse and in-depth topical seminars delivered by key military officials, decision makers and defense manufacturers from around the world, who will discuss issues that are fundamental to special operations and counter-terrorism forces worldwide.
SOFEX attracts considerable attention worldwide and is covered by accredited journalists and media representatives from the world's leading publications and organisations.
