1,500 enterprises and organizations will present their products at the Army 2020 international military-technical forum.

Colonel Oleg Kulakovsky, head of the department of congress and exhibition activities of the State Institution of Research and Technological Support of Advanced Technologies (Innovative Research) of the Russian Ministry of Defense, told Krasnaya Zvezda about the preparation of a large-scale event for gunsmiths in 35 countries during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the colonel, the concept of the forum was worked out in September last year. In December 2019, the first meeting of the organizing committee of the forum was held, after which the organization of the event was closely engaged. As a result, despite the coronavirus pandemic, the forum will be held from 23 to 29 August. 35 countries out of 133 invited have confirmed participation in it.

“The peculiarity of the forum this year was the decision to hold it jointly with the International Army Games. This, in turn, required a radical revision of a number of organizational issues - from the simplest everyday ones, concerning the accommodation and catering for twice as many crews of military equipment (including foreign teams) to the processing of the logistics of delivering visitors, ”said Kulakovsky.

The Forum's venues were the Patriot Convention and Exhibition Center, Kubinka airfield, Alabino training ground, Northern Fleet, Ashuluk training ground and all military districts. Over 28 thousand samples of weapons and military equipment will be presented here.
