AMMAN — A total of 362 companies from 35 countries have confirmed their participation in the 10th Special Operations Forces Exhibition (SOFEX 2014), which is scheduled to open on May 5, SOFEX Managing Director Amer Tabbaa said on Saturday.

This year’s participation is 10 per cent higher than last year’s, he said, underlining the importance of the exhibition in the Middle East and North Africa.

Preparations are under way to finalise this year’s exhibition, which marks the event’s two-decade milestone since its launch in 1996, Tabbaa added.

The exhibition, which will run through May 8, will be held in a space of 75,000 square metres at the King Abdullah I Airbase near Amman, with local, regional and international companies showcasing the latest special operations and technology equipment.
