The Egyptian military will hold its first defense exhibition on December 3 to 5, the armed forces announced Sunday (September 9).

The Egypt Defense Expo (EDEX) at the Cairo International Convention Center will be organized by the defense and military production ministries in cooperation with British Clarion Events, a world's leading defense and security events organizer.

The three-day defense expo is expected to attract more than 300 exhibitors and 10,000 visitors, Egypt's military spokesman Tamer al-Refai said in a statement.

The event will be the first of its kind in Egypt and any other African country, with high-tech defense systems from around the world, as well as Egypt-made military hardware expected to be on display.
