Royal Jordanian is the official carrier of SOFEX, the Special Operations Forces Exhibition and Conference. SOFEX is a story of growth that continues to make its mark in the world as one of the most important events on the defence industry calendar, making Jordan and its people proud of the exceptional reputation SOFEX has gained over the last 16 years.
The latest SOFEX edition reflected the image of Jordan as a country that continuously contributes to achieving security and peace in the region and world, and due to Jordan’s standing amongst the international community, SOFEX 2010 was capable of achieving record breaking numbers by attracting local, regional and international exhibitors, country pavilions and international delegations from 72 countries.
Fast forward two years, the time has come again when the international defence community prepares to network with the world’s most influential special operations forces and homeland security experts and decision makers at 9th edition of SOFEX (SOFEX 2012) in Amman, Jordan from May 7- 10, under the patronage of His Majesty King Abdullah II and under the leadership of His Royal Highness Prince Feisal, with the complete backing of the Jordanian Armed Forces and SOFEX affiliates.
The commencement of SOFEX 2012 will be marked first by a one-day international conference that is dedicated to Heads of State, Defence Ministers, Chiefs of Armed Forces, Special Operations Commanders and homeland security experts. This Special Operations Commanders conference provides a platform for interactive and proactive discussions by high ranking military officers to analyse the latest challenges facing global security and the capabilities of special operations forces around the world.
Following the conference, all the major defence manufacturers as well as small and medium sized companies active in the field of Special Operations and Homeland Security will gather at the 75,000 sqm exhibition space at Marka Airport to present their most up-to-date equipment and solutions to regional and international decision makers. SOFEX is where global security enhancement happens— new groundbreaking equipment and technologies are displayed for the first time and lasting opportunities are created all with one purpose in mind— Networking for Global Security.
