Expodefensa takes place under the auspices of the National Ministry of Defence and is organised by Corferias and Coges International. The 2019 edition takes place in a difficult moment for Colombia, which said international participation was confirmed the exhibition hosting over 230 companies and entities representing 25 countries, with six national pavilions. The guest of honour for this year is Spain, which pavilion counts 19 companies, the other national pavilions being those of Brazil, France, Israel, United Kingdom and United States. The exhibition includes all domains, such as Land, Sea, Air and Space, as well as cyber, and is not only a showcase for Colombian and foreign companies, but also a meeting point between potential end users and industry, as well as between industries themselves, cooperation having become a key element in most contracts.
