The two-day, free-to-attend event showcases specialist equipment, technology and services for disaster prevention, and response and recovery. The aim of IDME is to make responders tasks possible and easier by finding solutions and supporting the aftermath of man-made crises and natural disasters.

With over 5,000 visitors from governments, aid agencies, search and rescue teams, emergency response professionals, and NGOs expected, it’s the perfect opportunity to exchange science, policy and the best practices. There’s also a series of workshops and programmes, featuring industry experts, for visitors to improve their skills in the sector.
