RIYADH: Building on its successful debut, the World Defense Show returns to Riyadh this February, with over 750 exhibitors from 77 countries set to emphasize future readiness in the sector.

Founded by Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Military Industries, WDS serves as a global forum for innovation and technological discourse in the defense industry, covering five key domains: air, land, sea, space, and security.

The second edition is scheduled for Feb. 4-8 and promises to provide a comprehensive international perspective of the defense industry, while analyzing needs at local, regional, and global levels.

It will bring together military players, the Saudi leadership, and industry decision-makers with a key focus on the sector’s future.

As the Kingdom aims for a robust defense sector, a top priority remains localization, with Saudi Arabia aspiring to localize 50 percent of its defense spending by 2030.
