NEDS Rotterdam

17. November 2022 | Event for the defence and security industry

The NEDS is the largest exclusive event for the Defence and Security Industry in the Benelux region. NEDS will be held at Ahoy Rotterdam. The annual NIDV event is well known as the place where industry and the government meet each other. It is where more than 2,500 visitors from the Ministry of Defence, the police, fire services, the government, the industry and international representatives come together to network and establish new contacts. As in previous years, there will be ample opportunities for companies to present themselves or their products to visitors on the trade fair floor. Once again, there will also be an impressive main programme with keynote speeches and dignitaries. Visitors will be able to obtain in-depth information during the four concurrent sessions in the afternoon programme. Over 100 exhibitors, ranging from OEMs to SMEs and from start-ups to traditional suppliers, will be present to demonstrate their innovations, developments and the latest technological applications.

On the whole the organisers welcomed on 28. November 2019 about 120 exhibitors and 2500 visitors on the NEDS in Rotterdam.

The NEDS will take place on Thursday, 17. November 2022 in Rotterdam.
