The International Defence Industry Exhibition (MSPO), which takes place annually in Kielce, Poland, is Europe's third-largest defence and security trade show. This year's edition will be the largest to date, with an anticipated 30,000 visitors, 600+ exhibitors, and over 60 delegations across 39 countries.

MSPO is the flagship show in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region.

The Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) aims to highlight the presence of Canadian companies at MSPO 2024, ensuring they are as visible as possible during the event, and to maintain momentum from last year's edition, which saw a record 44 Canadian companies attend. The TCS will once again be hosting the Canada Pavilion at MSPO this year, with 12 Canadian companies exhibiting and many more in attendance. We will also be hosting a networking reception for Canadian exhibitors and attendees on the first day of the event. A meeting space will be available for our exhibitors to have discussions with interested visitors.
