At a time when the protection of the country and its citizens is the cornerstone of every development in modern societies, the presentation of modern technology in Security and Defense matters with existing solutions and applications is the key to its achievement.

The organization of the conference follows the new 5-year term of the Presidency of the Republic of Cyprus and the corresponding appointments of new administration of the MoD & National Guard, the lifting of the US embargo and the new geopolitical issues in the wider Eastern Mediterranean region related to energy and not only, which will be high on the agenda for the next period of time.

The aim of the conference is to present the capabilities of the most modern and effective technology in Defense & Security matters to the new Cypriot authorities, in the context of today's unstable international environment which is full of security challenges. Dealing with them requires, in addition to continuous diplomatic efforts, the exchange of knowledge and cooperation, especially with large technological players.


The conference will be attended by the Ministry of Defence, the Chief and senior officials of the National Guard, representatives of Ministries and other interested Cypriot Authorities, representatives of EU member states, international organizations and the international defence industry.
