2024 marks the 40th anniversary of the NIDV, and the 35th edition of the NIDV Exhibition Defence and Security. Bringing together government, industry and knowledge institutes is now more relevant than ever.

The increasing tension in the world means that the Netherlands and Europe must focus even more on cooperation with friendly nations and ensure resilient and reliable supply chains. Cooperation is a necessity and exchanging knowledge to create innovations is necessary to stay ahead. Only then can we continue to face the current challenges and threats.

As the only Defence and Security exhibition in the Benelux, the NIDV Exhibition Defence and Security is an annual international must-attend event. This edition proudly presents the best of the Defence and Security sector to an international audience. All domains: land, sea, air, space, and cyber are all present. Join our plenary program in the morning, meet our exhibitors, and connect with industry leaders and key decision-makers.

The 2024 edition is sponsored by KPN
