Turkish Armed Forces Foundation (TAFF), founded in 1987, has 30 companies, six of which are the leading companies of Turkish defence and aerospace industry and more than %50 of their shares belong to TAFF.
TAFF has organized IDEF International Defence Industry Fairs since 1993, with the purpose of developing national defence industry companies and increasing their international competitive power.
At the beginning, the purpose of IDEF Fairs was to promote national defence industry. However, in a short time, IDEF Fairs became an important international promotion, marketing and cooperation platform of defence, security, naval, aviation and aerospace fields and ranked to fifth biggest defence industry fair in the world, regarding the numbers of exhibitors and delegations participating the fair.
IDEF 2017 13th International Defence Industry Fair will be held on May 09-12, 2017, under the auspices of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey, hosted by Turkish Ministry of National Defence, under the management and responsibility of Turkish Armed Forces Foundation and organized by TÜYAP Fairs and Exhibitions Organization Inc. at TÜYAP Fair Convention and Congress Center.
As TAFF, we will be very proud of welcoming procurement authorities, defence industry companies and professional visitors, who will come from all over the world to İstanbul to participate in IDEF 2017 Fair.
Thank you for your continued support and participation of IDEF International Defence Industry Fairs.
