New Delhi, (UNI): Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday reviewed the preparations of DefExpo 2022 to be held in Gandhinagar in Gujarat in March and extended it by a day, saying the relaxation in Covid-19 protocol has generated greater interest in the exhibition.

The exhibition will be held between March 10 and 14. It will facilitate business and make it inclusive for young entrepreneurs, the Defence Ministry said.

The Minister also launched a dedicated mobile app during the review of Asia’s largest exhibition on land, naval and homeland security systems.

“It is an interactive and user-friendly interface for all issues related to the event. The app, available on the Android/iOS platforms, contains features to support exhibitors, attendees and the media. It provides the information on the exhibitors, schedule, speakers, venue maps, driving directions, publications as well as notifications to visitors and exhibitors. New features, such as delegate hospitality management and structured feedback including cleanliness related issues, have been added to the app,” the Ministry said.

The event is being organised as one of the largest defence international exhibitions of the world. There has been greater domestic and international interest in this 12th edition of DefExpo, the Ministry added.

“So far, 930 exhibitors have registered for the mega event and the numbers are expected to rise beyond 1,000 in the days ahead,” it said.

The previous edition of the event was held in February 2020 in Lucknow.
