The preparations for the upcoming 29th Polish International Defence Industry Exhibition – MSPO 2021 – are underway. The National Pavilions are one of the novelties which expands Targi Kielce’s September expo’s agenda.
It is worth remembering that Lead Nation Exhibitions have accompanied the military trade fair since 2004 and have thus become MSPO tradition. Until now countries which have have presented their military potential this way include:
- South Korea
- the Visegrád Four (V4) nations.
The 2018 expo was held under the banner of the 100th anniversary of the Independent Polish State. This year’s MSPO goes beyond the Lead Nation Exhibition concept, which featured just one state. The Targi Kielce’s expo halls will now become the presentation arena for National Pavilions instead. This new development allows particular countries to hold a bespoke display of their products and present their defence industries’ capabilities more effectively. American, Australian, British, French, German, Italian and other states’ military capabilities will be in the limelight.
The Polish Ministry of Defence has announced the impending implementation of several large programmes for the army technical modernisation. Therefore, a great interest in MSPO demonstrated by foreign defence companies comes as no surprise.
MSPO 2020: The International Defence Industry Exhibition was organised with strict observance of sanitary rules and regulations and brought together 185 companies from 15 countries. The 2020 MSPO was the showcase for the elite of rocket weapons manufacturers, from Raytheon to Lockheed Martin and MBDA. The three-day exhibition attracted several thousand visitors. The 29th MSPO show is being held from 7th to 10th September. The Republic of Poland President, Mr Andrzej Duda, has granted Auspices to the expo.

According to information provided by finance firm JP Morgan, based on the analysis of the vaccination processes against the COVID-19 pandemic in different countries, Chile would achieve herd immunity towards the end of the second quarter of this year, putting the country ahead of nations such as China or North Korea. This would benefit the Chilean market over others, making it an attractive pole for companies and investors.
The Regional Director of Portfolio Solutions at Credicorp Capital Asset Management, Klaus Kaempfe, said, “[this] greatly helps to make Chile an interesting market for the world”. Additionally, the International Monetary Fund indicated that Chile’s economic projections are expected to rise 5.8 per cent for 2021, putting the country in second place in the region.
Without a doubt, for the International Air and Space Fair, FIDAE 2022, this represents a key milestone since this is a sign for the exhibitors that Chile remains as the main access to the regional market, with a solid and stable economy. Furthermore, the Fair is doubling the efforts to guarantee safety in terms of sanitary conditions, protecting those who attend the foremost and oldest aerospace, defence, and security exhibition of Latin America.
FIDAE Will take place from 5 to 10 April 2022, at the north side of the Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport, in Santiago, Chile.
