One of the largest defence technology trade fairs is going to take place in Abu Dhabi in United Arab Emirates between the 19th and 23rd February 2017. The exhibitors will include the holding CZECHOSLOVAK GROUP and the automotive company TATRA TRUCKS.

TATRA TRUCKS and companies of the holding CZECHOSLOVAK GROUP will bring several new products and interesting exhibits to the trade fair IDEX 2017. TATRA TRUCKS is going to introduce several versions of its heavy trucks, designed for military use. The companies of CZECHOSLOVAK GROUP presenting themselves in IDEX 2017 will include EXCALIBUR INTERNATIONAL, EXCALIBUR ARMY, EUROPIEN AIR SERVICES, MSM GROUP, ZVS, RETIA, KARBOX and KOVOSVIT MAS. For example, EXCALIBUR ARMY will unveil a completely new product, the rocket launcher RM-70 VAMPIRE 4D.  The unmanned aerial vehicle CANTAS E by the company EXCALIBUR INTERNATIONAL will also be introduced in Abu Dhabi for the very first time, while the manufacturer of special electronic systems RETIA is going to present the newest versions of the special radar device ReTWis.

Taking place every two years, the defence exhibition IDEX is continuously growing in importance, which is evident in the numbers of exhibitors and visitors. In the year 2015 there were about 1100 exhibitors from more than 120 countries covering an area of 35 thousand square metres, while the turnout was more than 100 thousand people. It is not without interest that in 2015 Czech participants occupied the largest exhibition area out of all the new EU members and a significant part of that was covered by TATRA TRUCKS and the holding CZECHOSLOVAK GROUP.
