ISDEF 2011 – IS THE LEADING INTERNATIONAL HOMELAND SECURITY AND DEFENSE EXPO IN ISRAEL, SERVING THE HLS AND DEFENSE INDUSTRY FOR THE 5TH CONSECUTIVE YEAR.
ISDEF is the most significant international defence and security expo in Israel, and is a vital opportunity for high-profile experts to establish professional relationships while serving as a platform for the formation of international cooperation.
There is no other expo like ISDEF that takes place in Israel. From innovative technologies to avant-garde systems, ISDEF reflects the capabilities and strategic developments of the region and is considered a significant platform for international companies to enter the Israeli market and strengthen business opportunities.
ISDEF will bring together leading international companies from the Defence, and HLS industry, as well as government and military officials, foreign delegations, and key figures from the market. ISDEF is expecting 150 exhibitors from all over the world and 8,000 guests from 60 countries, making ISDEF a summit for defence, business and cooperation.
The focus of ISDEF 2011 is Homeland Security: Natural Disasters and Counter-Terrorism. HLS is based on four aspects; preparedness, protection, response and recovery, all of which are the same core components harnessed in natural disasters and crisis situations. Due to the global situation, and the evolving threats facing the world at large, the defence and security industries are faced with new challenges and are looking for answers.
Major defence contractors are involved in developing and producing homeland security products and services. Increasingly these defence contractors are diversifying into the homeland security market as a recession-resistant alternative to other defence activities. At the same time, newer and smaller companies have emerged with innovative technologies that make the homeland security market even more dynamic and ISDEF is the ideal platform.
Homeland security is a top national priority in Israel. Out of necessity Israel has had to be active in combating geopolitical threats. Israel’s security relies on its defence capabilities which are constantly being tested by means of un-conventional warfare, terrorism, and paramilitary attacks.
PROTECTION, PREPARDNESS, RESPONSE AND RECOVERY ARE THE CRITICAL POINTS NECESSARY TO SECURE AND DEFEND THE HOME FRONT AGAINST FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC THREATS, DISASTERS OR ATTACKS.
