Establishing partnerships with key stakeholders across Qatar’s industry sectors is part of DIMDEX’s strategic development as one of the foremost events in the global security calendar. HE Al Attiyah said they are delighted to be the Main Sponsor of DIMDEX 2020 in support of Qatar’s national defence and security sector. He said that they will continue to be an active contributor in the development of the nation, as well as be a key participant in the achievement of projects related to military and civil fields.


DIMDEX continues to promote targeted growth for the national defence and security sector, in alignment with Qatar’s overarching growth framework. Under the theme ‘Connecting the World’s Maritime Defence and Security Community’, DIMDEX 2020 is expected to broaden in exhibitor and attendee scope to provide a significant contribution to the industry dialogue. Key event highlights such as the Middle East Naval Commanders Conference (MENC), the popular visiting warship display, as well as a range of fringe events will serve as unique networking opportunities for attendees and VIP delegates, including key decision makers, government officials and industry experts.

Since its launch in 2008, DIMDEX has witnessed the signing of agreements of over US$32 billion and has evolved into an internationally-recognised business and technology platform that promotes collaborations within the defence and security sector. DIMDEX is now considered one of the foremost international events, offering the latest innovations and solutions in the defence and security industry, in addition to unparalleled opportunities for commerce and knowledge-exchange.
