Expodefensa to Highlight Security and Defence Industry in Latin America and Caribbean

Military and security spending in Latin America and the Caribbean has considerably increased in the past decade, with governments engaging several acquisition programmes to sustain regional stability and protect their resources and populations.
Despite relative interstate stability in the region, countries need security and defence solutions and equipment to maintain or restore border safety, prevent, and combat natural and industrial disasters and protect centres for exploitation of energy resources and mine sites.
Some of the main security issues that the continent is facing include narcotics trafficking, criminal organisations, or migration flows. Defence-related topics include interoperability between forces, simulation and training, cyberdefence, land, air, fluvial and maritime border control. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic led to an important deployment of operation missions in the region and governments are stressing the need to adapt their efforts to face the new challenges it has raised.
Hub of Technological Innovation
Expodefensa 2021, taking place from 29 November to 1 December in Colombia, will put the spotlight on the security and defence industry in Latin America and the Caribbean. 
The tri-service exhibition represents the continental hub of technological innovation in security and defence domains where the duality of equipment meets a real operational and budgetary need. As the exhibition of the Colombian Ministry of Defense, Expodefensa is organised by two companies – Corferias and COGES Events, with the participation of armed, security and emergency forces. Both organisers are the references in event organisation, Corferias as the Bogota International Business and Exhibition Centre and COGES Events as organiser of defence and security events such as Eurosatory, one of the leading global land and airland defence and security exhibitions.
Expodefensa is the international event of reference for all those in Latin America and the Caribbean who oversee defence and security and are looking for technology solutions and international equipment. Official delegations, defence and security forces from the South American continent attend the exhibition to discover the widest range of defence and security products adapted to the continental requirements.
The last edition of the event, Expodefensa 2019, hosted over 250 exhibitors from Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, European Union, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Mexico, Netherlands, Panama, South Korea, Sweden, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, U.S., among others. Spain participated as a guest of honour country. About 13,000 professional visitors attended the event including 75 official delegations from 24 countries. 
This year, the topics covered by the event are essential today in the geopolitical context not only in Latin America but in all the regions of the world. Therefore, Expodefensa will present a global vocation in terms of reflection and business. 
The event is set to be one of the unique defence and security physical events in the world to take place this year and will be accessible for participants globally.
 With most major events being cancelled due to the pandemic, Expodefensa will provide a great opportunity to discover new equipment and suppliers as well as the latest technological innovations offered by international and Colombian companies.
The event will bring together exhibitors, official delegations, VIP experts and trade visitors from Latin American and Caribbean countries. All the participants are highly likely to benefit from Expodefensa and strengthen their professional networks and find new contacts to develop their business. 
The exhibition will also be a place to exchange experiences and reflect on future solutions with security and defence players through a set of high-level technical and geostrategic conferences and workshops.
The exhibition will take place in CORFERIAS International Business & Exhibition Center that is a bio-safe venue. It’s certified by Bureau Veritas with the international SEFEGUARD label, and with the biosafety certification CHECK-IN certificate issued by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Tourism of Colombia.
