International Defence Conference

The digital world around us is evolving at an incredible pace. Disruptive emerging technologies, 4th Industrial Revolution, Artificial Intelligence and robotics to name a few, have created promises as well as peril. New paradigm is required to safely navigate the digital world and it is through collaborative efforts that we can create a safer world for ourselves and generations to come.

Government, Industries and academia should work close together to bring about solutions to the challenges facing mankind. The conference is designed to bring thought leaders, policy makers, influencers, researchers and futurists under one roof in Abu Dhabi to debate and share ideas related to technological advancement and disruptive technologies.

This conference marks the first time that two of the region’s signature and most well-attended events—the Abu Dhabi International Offset Conference (ADIOC) and the IDEX Conference—will be combined into a single “must attend” event for Defence, security, academic communities and companies operating in the region and internationally.

The combined 2019 conference is the culmination of a bold vision to create a single, world-class event in Abu Dhabi. Our ambitious agenda centers on four inter-related focus areas: Economics, Security & Stability, Offset, and Innovation & Artificial Intelligence.

Discussion in each of these areas will bring together an impressive mix of best-in-class experts, renowned industry and innovation leaders, academicians, senior flag officers, and defence decision-makers. Our multi-disciplinary panels will explore the most pressing challenges to and opportunities for a shared future of stability, security and prosperity in a world struggling with several transformative and destabilizing transitions.
