TATV Insight: WDS CEO Andrew Pearcey on the major defence event

The World Defense Show will take place in Riyadh, March 6-9. Organisers have had to build extra halls to cope with the additional demand.

WDS chief executive Andy Pearcey talks to Alan Peaford about just why the global defence industry is making its way to the Saudi Arabian capital and why Saudi SMEs are flocking to the innovative new site to show their wares and capabilities.

With interoperability being the key to the event, it's no wonder that exhibitors from more than 37 countries will represent land, air, sea, space and security.

The video gives flavour of what is in store for the mega-event next month.

Register to attend before 15th February and be granted a one-year complimentary multi-entry visa, to extend opportunities beyond the show. www.worlddefenseshow.com
