IDEAS 2016

As Pakistan continues to face internal & external challenges such as terrorism, regional instability, arms race and economic stagnation, International Defence Exhibition and Seminar (IDEAS) 2016 will kick off on Tuesday in Pakistan’s busiest metropolitan city, Karachi.

Organized by Defence Exhibition Promotion Organization DEPO headed by Major General Masood Akram, IDEAS-2016 is set to tear off the roof in terms of sophisticated weaponry. Around 43 countries all around the world will be visiting 9th International Defence Exhibition and Seminar.

All the defence delegates, armed forces officials, exhibitors, trade visitors and speakers are eagerly waiting for the upcoming exhibition. Forums like Sideline Conferences, Exhibition, Inauguration Ceremony and Governor’s Reception will provide a huge opportunity to interact with high level defence delegates and officials. This year, CommandEleven’s Deputy Director General – Operations Faisal Aijaz will be attending the mega event to interact with defence officials and delegates, enabling CommandEleven to present an opportunity to showcase its expertise such as Counter-Insurgency, Defense & Armaments & Counter-Terrorism. 

Pakistan has come a long way to transform its defence industries, to depend less on foreign countries. This year, Turkish defence companies such as MKEK, Roketsan, ASELSAN,  established a defence alliance with Pakistan to present Turkish weaponry at IDEAS-2016 which can turn out to be highly beneficial for both countries as defence officials from Turkey would also be looking at Pakistan’s indigenous defence products. 

We, at CommandEleven, would like to wish DG DEPO Major General Masood Akram and his team best of luck for the upcoming defence exhibition which will surely help to project Pakistan as a progressive country.
