Media

Trade and industry news reports influence the decisions attendees make about where to spend their valuable time during the show. Industry media reports are also critical sources for professionals who can’t attend.

Our long-standing editorial and marketing relationships with leading defense and security industry media companies bring extra attention and insight to the U.S. International Pavilion at Expodefensa. Look for real-time Headline News from our industry media partners on our website and at our on-site Newsstand during the event, where you can also pick up copies of their latest publications.

In addition to industry-wide PR and media relations efforts, Kallman will work directly with international media leaders such as Defense News to provide news, information and insight to the USA Partnership Pavilion during Expodefensa 2021.
