Premier defence exhibition DefExpo-2022 which was proposed to be held in Gandhinagar between March 10 and 14 has been postponed as participants are experiencing problems related to logistics, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said on Friday.
The ministry added that the new dates for the event will be announced in "due course".
The Defence Ministry had said on 22 February that as many as 973 exhibitors, including 121 foreign exhibitors from 63 countries, had registered for Asia's largest exhibition on land, naval and homeland security systems.
“Due to logistics problems being experienced by participants, the DefExpo-2022 proposed to be held in Gandhinagar, Gujarat from March 10th till March 14th is postponed,” the Defence Ministry said in a statement on Friday.
The new dates will be communicated in due course, the ministry added.
This year's DefExpo would be the 12th edition of prestigious biennial defence exhibition.
Earlier on 18 February, the ministry had said that in a first-of-its-kind initiative, the event, with a theme of 'Path to Pride', will showcase India's resolve to be first amongst firsts.
