Abu Dhabi: The first group of navy ships landed at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre Waterfront (ADNEC Marina) to participate in NAVDEX 2023.
NAVDEX 2023 will take place in conjunction with IDEX 2023 from February 20th to 24th under the patronage of President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Seven navy warships of various sizes and functions, from several nations, made up the first batch.
Vessels were officially welcomed as they entered the Mussafah Water Canal till they arrived at the ADNEC Marina, which is situated across from the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. A number of other naval boats that will take part in NAVDEX 2023 were also sent to Zayed Port.
Commodore Mr. Rashid Al-Muhaisni, Chairman of the Organising Committee for NAVDEX 2023, stated that, “The current edition of the NAVDEX exhibition is expected to see a significant growth in the number of exhibiting companies, and a wide display of the latest innovative technologies in the maritime defence industry. Since the launch of its first edition 12 years ago, NAVDEX has succeeded in reaffirming its position as one of the leading global platforms that brings together experts and specialists from all over the world, to establish partnerships and explore opportunities to promote vital sectors.”
“The current edition of NAVDEX will witness the participation of a number of naval vessels from eight countries, which include Pakistan, Bahrain, the United Kingdom, Italy, China, India, and the UAE. The vessels will be on display at ADNEC Port and Zayed Port, which will also feature naval vessels as part of the exhibition,” Mr. Al-Muhaisni added.
The only venue in the Middle East that hosts indoor, outdoor, and marine shows is the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. The Center is the largest in the Middle East and North Africa thanks to its cutting-edge facilities and 153,000 square metres of space.
This has helped IDEX and NAVDEX fairs flourish by increasing their competitiveness and drawing significant multinational corporations in important industries.
