The 15th IDEF International Defence Industry Fair, IDEF 2021, will be organised between 17 - 20 August 2021 in İstanbul, under the auspices of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey and hosted by the Ministry of National Defence.

IDEF'21 will be held physically, as always, at Tüyap Fair and Congress Center in Büyükçekmece, Istanbul.


More than 1,170 companies from Turkey and abroad are expected to attend IDEF'21, Turkey's most important meeting platform and the world's defence industry giants. While declaring that 116 delegations will attend the fair, the returns of the delegations continue.

IDEF'21 reported that 28 Ministers would attend the 15th International Defense Industry Fair so far. In addition to the Ministers, the delegations to attend the fair include many senior officials at the level of Chief of Staff, Land Forces Commander, Naval Forces Commander, Air Force Commander, Deputy Chief of General Staff, Deputy Minister, Gendarmerie General Commander, Chief of Police, Coast Guard Commander and Undersecretary. The increase in the interest of senior officials responsible for defence procurement in the fair this year already informs that IDEF'21 will be very productive and reach its goals. IDEF hosted 151 delegations and 588 delegation members from 71 countries and three international organisations in 2019.
In the 15th International Defense Industry Fair, foreign delegation invitations were made by the Ministry of National Defence, the Ministry of Internal Affairs Presidency of Defence Industries and their affiliates. The number of invited delegations for IDEF'21 increased to 455.

IDEF'21 will also experience the hybrid fair

IDEF'21 will also provide its participants with the "next-generation hybrid fair" experience where digital applications are used effectively. Digital platforms, originally developed by Tüyap and created using the smart matching system and special algorithms, will establish new collaborations by defence industry professionals.
IDEF 21 fair was planned to be held in May but was postponed to August as a precaution due to the increasing Covid Pandemic.
