31st International Defence Industry Exhibition MSPO
About the event
MSPO 2023 - we look forward to seeing you!
"I think the conflict in Ukraine will not finish next year. And even if the conflict ends, what remains is the distrust between countries, the awareness of the need to consider defence to ensure an effective deterrence level. We will have to face all these challenges next year. I do not think that safety and security matters are set aside. The International Defence Industry Exhibition is still in demand." says Andrzej Mochoń, President of the Board of Targi Kielce.
Not only is MSPO a comprehensive presentation of military equipment, but it also abounds with business meetings and contracts concluded between manufacturers from different continents and the defence sector bodies. MSPO is ranked third among all Europe's exhibitions, after the Paris and London trade shows. This year's MSPO is held from 5 to 8 September 2023. Mr Andrzej Duda, the Republic of Poland President's Auspices have been granted to the expo. The Polish Armaments Group has been the Strategic Partner of the International Defence Industry Exhibition.
