With the on-going uncertainty and concern for the rising number of daily infected COVID-19 cases in Thailand, the Thai government has imposed a number of restrictions including the temporary closure of public venues while continues to keep travel restrictions imposed.
Following consultations between the organising committee, the Thai Ministry of Defence, Royal Thai Armed Forces, partners, and supporters, a decision was made to defer the Defense & Security 2021 show, which was scheduled to be held on November 1-4, 2021 at IMPACT Exhibition Centre, Bangkok, Thailand, to a later date in 2022. The new dates are set on August 29 to September 1, with the venue unchanged, which is Challenger 1 and 2 Halls at IMPACT in Muang Thong Thani.
According to both Thai government and organisers, GML Exhibition (Thailand), this is in the best interest for the health and safety of all concerned, especially that of the participants and visitors.
The decision to host the show in 2022, when international trade and business are expected to return in full force, will ensure the participants can enjoy the high-quality event that they have come to expect.
The prioritised concern is to create a safe and secure business environment for all participants including the visitors. By rescheduling the event to 2022, the show will be able to offer better values to all participants including those from quality local and oversea trade visitors, key decision makers, and official delegations.
The organisers wishes to thank sponsors, partners, supporters, and exhibitors for their continued support and understanding. They wish everyone good health and good spirits, knowing that everyone will get through this together. Both the Thai Defence Ministry and organisers are looking forward to meet participants and visitors in 2022.
Defense & Security, Bangkok, is globally recognised as one of the most important tri-service and security exhibitions of the year. The show serves as an important platform for military cooperation and partnership and offers top business opportunities for military and security manufacturers.
This power of partnership provides outstanding benefits for now and the future. Thailand’s largest defence event continues to be a key international trade show in the Southeast Asian region and is expected to be more all-encompassing covering the gamut of the latest in defence technology. -shp/adj/aaa
