What the Event is about

The UAE Defence industry witnessed a remarkable progress in the past decade and has started exporting its knowhow and products to the region and the entire world. However despite the presence of thousands of factories in the country, it is estimated that more than 80% of the supplies in the defence manufacturing sector are imported from foreign suppliers outside the UAE.
TIP Industrial Forum was designed to address this challenge. It aims at helping UAE defence manufacturers identify new suppliers within the UAE, thus reducing exported money, increasing independence and supplier choices, creating new jobs and contracts in the country.
All exhibitors will be admitted based on the criteria and needs set by the various defence manufacturers.
TIP Industrial Forum is held at Tawazun Industrial Park (TIP), the only park in the UAE dedicated to the defence industries. This will ensure that all the buyers will visit as they are located nearby.

An exhibition area.

Conferences and workshops about how to tender for the defence industry.

An area dedicated to digital and innovation.

Our Visitors

The exhibition is closed to the general public and all visitors will be admitted by invitation only. TIP Industrial Forum reflects the needs of the national defence manufacturers in the United Arab Emirates.


About Us

We believe that one-to-one meeting events have a higher return on investment than traditional exhibitions who base their success on the number of visitors, instead of the number of sales leads generated by those visitors.

Because of this, one to one meeting events have been growing steadily in the exhibition industry and are seen by many as the future trend of trade shows, as they focus on the real visiting buyers. Most of the meetings during these events are pre-set. The ROI for the exhibitor is maximized, as he meets a big number of potential buyers and does not lose time in useless meetings.

The founders of Kleos Exhibitions launched in 2017 in partnership with the Abu Dhabi Food Security Centre, the highly acclaimed Agriscape, a one-to-one event held in Abu Dhabi and dedicated to agricultural investments abroad. Agriscape meant to address the food security challenges facing the UAE and the region.

The founders of Kleos Exhibitions organized previously as well the Abu Dhabi Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition, launched in Abu Dhabi Sial Middle East, the regional version of the biggest food exhibition in the world, as well as Eurotier Middle East, the regional version of the biggest animal farming exhibition in the world, in addition to numerous trade exhibitions in Paris (Elearn Expo, Int. Workwear Expo), in Geneva (Lobby & Lounge), in Johannesburg (Beauty Africa) and in Beirut (Project Lebanon) since 1995.
