Aviation Valley at MSPO Kielce

MSPO – essential and very much in demand

All eyes on Targi Kielce in September – not only the military business sector but the broadly defined industry is focused on the Kielce events. There are two reasons why this year has been so exceptional.  First of all, it has been the Kielce autumn tradition to offers the world's biggest military concerns' the presentation platform for their visions of a modern army. The representatives of Aviation Valley have visited the fair as well as attended to bilateral meetings with the exhibiting companies.

The expo was organised with strict observance of sanitary rules and regulations and brought together 185 companies from 15 countries. 2020 MSPO was the showcase for the elite of rocket weapons manufacturers – from US Raytheon and Lockheed Martin to the British MBDA European Missile House. The three days' exhibition attracted several thousand visitors. HE Jeremy Quin, the UK Minister for Defence Procurement, UK, the head of the British delegation and MSPO 2020 Lead Nation Exhibition best recapitulated the trade show. This is how he referred to the expo facts and figures in his speech at the commencement ceremony: "Can I say what a real privilege is speaking today. In the UK, we are always impressed by the resilience and the determination of the Polish people. Examples of that resilience and determination occur again and again in the long history of the nation.   It is, therefore, no surprise, even with all the challenges that the world is currently facing, Poland has laid on a first-rate trade show today.   We may be lower on a number we would normally expect,  but looking around the halls earlier today,  and peering through the lights at all of you in the seats – we may be lower on numbers; we are certainly high on quality."
