The USA Security and Defense Pavilion at the 2022 Special Operations Forces Exhibition and Conference in Jordan opens Nov. 1 for events that include presentations by U.S. and defense industry leaders.

Organized by the Association of the U.S. Army, this year’s USA Pavilion features 27 companies and covers more than 550 square meters.

The 2022 Special Operations Forces Exhibition and Conference, also known as SOFEX, is the 13th edition of the event. It will feature more than 300 exhibitors from 38 countries and more than 13 international pavilions, and more than 400 military delegations representing more than 100 countries.

Up to 15,000 people are expected to attend this year’s SOFEX, which officially kicked off Oct. 31 with the Middle East Special Operations Commander’s Conference featuring senior leader panels and high-level lectures on topics such as emerging threats, artificial intelligence in modern warfare and cyber capabilities.

On Nov. 1, SOFEX will launch three days of exhibitions at the Aqaba Gate Aviation at the King Hussein International Airport, the first time the event is being held in this location. Previously, SOFEX was held in Amman.

Founded in 1996 by Jordan’s King Abdullah II, this year’s SOFEX will run through Nov. 3.

AUSA will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the USA Pavilion on Nov. 1. At the pavilion, the Army will display the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, the RQ-11 Raven unmanned aerial vehicle and other equipment.
