Expodefensa will be held in Bogotá, Colombia, from 4-6 December 2017, writes Nadia Deseilligny.

Co-organised by Colombia’s Ministry of National Defense, COGES and Corferias, Expodefensa-Feria Internacional de Defensa y Seguridad is now the leading land, air and naval defence and security show for the Latin American and Caribbean regions.

The 2017 show is expected to improve on the 2015 one, which drew 232 exhibitors, of which 34 per cent were local companies and 66 per cent came from 26 other countries. The show welcomed 10,390 visitors from 35 countries, and 55 official delegations from 27 countries.
