The Middle East Military Technology Conference (MEMTEC) took place alongside BIDEC 2019 on 29-30 October 2019.
The Middle East Military Technology Conference (MEMTEC) discussed issues including the current status and future of military technology, cyber defence strategies, the impact of artificial intelligence on the functions of armed forces, the use of military technology to develop simulation models of war, the impact of military technology on regional conflicts and the future of military industries in Middle East states.
In light of the tremendous advances in the defence sector, the military power of nations is no longer measured solely by the size of its armed forces, but rather its optimisation through modern technological solutions. MEMTEC showcased how these global developments will reshape conflicts in the Middle East.
"Historically, the Kingdom was a safe port for the neighbouring nations, and it’s now an international hub for sharing ideas and entrepreneurship.
BIDEC and MEMTEC serve this purpose by investing in knowledge and technology."
