"Networking is a key element to the Bahrain International Airshow, with a keen focus on international delegations from both military and civil sectors of the global aerospace community. A structured programme, planned around the requests and requirements of the delegation members and airshow participants is arranged. These programmes act as a daily framework for the delivery of meetings and networking opportunities, with many countries sending their most senior military and civil officials to the show." (BIA 2014 brochure)

Security & Policing showcases world leading products and services, taking advantage of the unique opportunity to bring together people with operational needs with companies that have the relevant solutions, all within a secure environment.
