Show stoppers [ID18D3]

09 November 2018

Visitors to a well-attended Indo Defence Expo & Forum, as exemplified by the busy exhibitor halls, were treated throughout the show to an impressive demonstration by local police and security forces on how to handle a hostage situation, effectively supported by a ferocious canine.

Police horses, splendidly decked out in red, provided a colourful backdrop to the expensive static kit on display, while also ensuring the safety of attendees. By the time the halls close for the final time, Indo Defence will have attracted more than 2,500 visitors and partnerships will have been struck with local companies and organisations, bringing benefits to Indonesia and the rest of the Asia-Pacific region. It augurs well for the next edition, and many will once again make their way to this fascinating country in 2020.
