ISDEF is the premier International Defense and Homeland Security Exhibition in Israel and must attend event for companies seeking entry to the Israeli Market, access to 3rd Market opportunities and exposure to end users and key decision makers from both Israel and abroad. Since 2007, ISDEF has catered to the needs of the Military, Police, Special Forces & Intelligence Organizations by exposing them to products, systems & solutions provided by innovative defense & security companies.
INTEROPERABILITY will be a main focus at ISDEF 2017. ISDEF will highlight the growing importance of dual use products, systems and applications used for both defense and security purposes. The audience at ISDEF will include end users from both civilian/public security and military institutions. More than 65% of the exhibitors at ISDEF will be presenting dual use products meaning that not only will business opportunity be enhanced, but end users will be exposed to more features and capabilities that fulfill their demands [air, land and sea]. In Israel, homeland security and defense are parallel in many instances and this can be seen more and more throughout the world.
