UMEX is the only exhibition in the region dedicated to unmanned systems and technologies used in air, land and marine operations. Meanwhile, SimTEX focuses on demonstrating simulation and training technology and capabilities. The biennial dual event convenes international delegations and decision-makers from the defence and aerospace industry as well as senior officials from the government and private sectors to explore the latest technologies and examine potential business opportunities.

Building on the success of the previous Unmanned Systems Exhibition and Conference in 2016 & 2018, launched during the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX), the Middle East region is ready to welcome a bigger and better UMEX show in 2020, with a broader scope which will include a Simulation and Training (SIMTEX) zone to reflect the growth and investment in the UAE and GCC countries.

UMEX and SIMTEX are ideally positioned to provide a professional platform for manufacturers to meet operators and establish lucrative business relationships while promoting the ecological, environmental, civil and humanitarian benefits of unmanned systems and military simulation and training.

The previous edition of UMEX and SimTEX in 2018 drew the participation of 122 major global defence-related companies from 34 countries.
