Based on the Decree of the Russian Federation Government No. 2668-r dated 14 December 2016, the ARMY-2017 International Military-Technical Forum will be held from 22 to 27 August 2017. The event will be organized by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.



The major event held for the third consecutive year will involve Russian and foreign Defense Industry leaders, benchmark design bureaus and research institutes. Last year the forum welcomed representatives from over 80 countries, including 35 formal delegations. In total, there were over 260 military delegates. The unprecedented ceremony for signing of 17 government contracts over 130 billion rubles worth was held in a novel format by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation within the framework of the Forum.



The Forum landmark events will unfold in the Patriot Congress and Expo Center (Moscow region) in a unique format combining a static exhibition of military equipment in Patriot Expo, a dynamic demonstration of military equipment functionality on land and in water at Alabino testing grounds, and an aviation show at Kubinka Airfield.



The total exhibition area, including pavilions and open grounds, will exceed 200 thousand square meters. The Forum will showcase mobility performance of over 200 specimens of armament and military equipment manufactured by more than 1000 Russian and foreign plants and companies.



The research and business agenda will incorporate plenary meetings, conferences, round tables and briefings, providing a venue to discuss topical questions of defense and security, as well as further improvement opportunities in the area of military products manufacturing.


The Forum visitors will get a glimpse of the cutting edge high technology breakthroughs and prospective developments implemented in defense industry, and witness specimens of combat equipment available with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.



The Forum agenda will provide for availability of the experts during the days with limited public attendance, ensuring favorable conditions for holding business meetings and negotiations.

Within the scope of the ARMY 2017 Forum, following the governmental task of defense industry diversification and release of advanced high-tech civil products, the “IntellTechExpo: Intellectual Industrial Technologies 2017” International exhibition of high performing equipment and technologies for the defense industry retrofitting will take place from 22 to 27 August 2017.



The Forum will occupy halls and open areas of the Patriot Congress and Exhibition Center.
