September 19 | Sofia | South East Europe

header2022-v2-2.jpg

DELEGATION PROGRAM

Geopolitical changes in the wake of the Ukraine war and the subsequent instability in Central and Eastern Europe have resulted in significant changes in the military policies of European countries and a massive increase in defense spending. Governments are prioritizing procurement in a number of fields especially cyber capabilities and defense.
In view of Israel’s advanced technologies in these fields and NATO’s modernization of its arsenals, IMPROVATE will host a two-day defense conference and business meetup in Sofia, Bulgaria on September 19-20, 2022 aimed at countries in Central and Eastern Europe.
Leading Israeli companies will have the opportunity to present their technologies to senior representatives from regional militaries and defense ministries. The conference will be attended by ministers, senior military officers, defense committee members, and integrators from throughout Europe.
