The platform will enable access to dedicated programs that support Saudi Arabia’s local businesses, it will leverage investment opportunities and encourage a new generation to aspire to work in the defense industry.” Mr. Ormrod is the former CEO of Farnborough Airshow with over 20 years of industry trade show expertise.
