This is the first exhibition held under the auspices of the Ministry of Defense and Aerospace Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan. It will be attended by domestic and foreign enterprises of the defense-industrial complex and space industry, leading design bureaus and research institutes.
During the years of the exhibition "KADEX" it rightfully became one of the world's leading exhibition platforms for demonstrating weapons, military and special equipment, technologies in the field of information security.
For the first time, the International Forum "Space Days in Kazakhstan" will be held within the framework of the exhibition "KADEX - 2018", which will become one of the central dialogue platforms of the exhibition.
Within the framework of the forum, an extensive scientific and business program will be held that will take place in the format of plenary and sectional meetings, conferences, roundtables, which will allow specialists from all countries to exchange views on topical issues of defense and security, development of the world cosmonautics as well as to discuss the problems of ensuring cyber security at the present stage.

A special emphasis on the exhibition will be made on the development of electronic systems, communication systems and weapons control, and search for modern solutions in the field of information security.
The practical result of all of this should be the conclusion of mutually beneficial contracts, the signing of agreements and memorandums, which in turn will promote the development of partnerships in the field of military-technical cooperation, cyber security and the development of outer space.
