Specialist Services Exhibits at Defense Event in UAE

Specialist Services, part of Centurion Middle East & North Africa, recently exhibited at the first edition of Ajban Defense Industry and Technology Exhibition 2024.

The event took place in Abu Dhabi, UAE in February and played host to more than120 exhibitors. Among the hundreds of attendees were key representatives from a host of national and international companies serving the global defense industry.

The event provided a platform for exhibitors to showcase their capabilities and advanced technologies while allowing attendees, exhibitors and other key stakeholders to explore collaborative prospects. Generating over 1,700 commercial opportunities for local manufacturers, the exhibition directly supported the UAE’s national ‘Make it in the Emirates’ initiative and the national In-Country Value Program.

“The Ajban Defense Industry and Technology Exhibition gave us the opportunity to engage with potential clients and local manufacturers dedicated not only to advancing defense technologies and solutions, but also to build connections within the UAE. Our presence at Ajban enabled us to showcase our deployable infrastructure, contingency basing, and modular construction capabilities and meet key local partners from multiple UAE based offset companies in the defense industry,” said Kyle Bowles, General Manager – Defense at Specialist Services.

The event was a huge success for Specialist Services and a highly beneficial opportunity to showcase their growing equipment and service offering tailored specifically for the defense sector.
