Along with Eurosatory in Paris & DSEI in London, MSPO in Kielce is the most important defence exhibition in Europe.
The upcoming 27th edition of the fair will be again organized with honorary patronage of the Polish President, Mrs Andrzej Duda between 3th and 6th September, at the Kielce Exhibition Centre.
The fair’s reputation is a result of the goodwill of the invited exhibitors – globally reputable defence companies, as well as of the fact that strategic defence contracts are being signed during the event. Every year, major defence companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon BAE Systems, General Dynamics, Thales, MBDA or Saab, are being presented during the MSPO fair.
Throughout the 27 years, the organizers have created an event which may be placed among the European top, with good reputation around the world, and up to 35,000 visitors per annum. The visitors include Ministers of Defence, official parliamentary and governmental organizations, representatives of the embassies and command staff from Poland and abroad. Last year, the exhibition has been attended by official delegates coming from over 50 countries.
National exhibitions are also a tradition of the event. 2019’s MSPO is held under the banner of the United States as the expo Lead nation and the 20th anniversary of the Armed Forces Exhibition.
