The importance of the defence and security capacities of the state always grows in difficult times. That is why it is of utmost importance to continue modernizing the armed forces and investing in high-quality equipment. A major show of innovations in the defence and security industry in the region of Central Europe is the IDET trade fair held in Brno. The PYROS and ISET trade fairs will take place concurrently. Once again, all components of the integrated rescue system will be presented.
Due to current changes in the calendar of events planned for the second half of the year, the International Security Fairs IDET/PYROS/ISET are have been moved to a new date on 6–8 October, 2021.
The IDET International Defence and Security Technologies Fair will be held on an irregular date of 20–22 October 2021. The move has been decided by the management of BVV Trade Fairs Brno, in agreement with the Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic and the Defence and Security Industry Association of the Czech Republic. The reason is the ongoing uncertainty in the development of the covid-19 pandemic in the first half of this year. The new dates do not collide with any similar sectoral event in the Czech Republic or abroad.
