That is why congress part of the exhibition becomes even more important than the demonstrative one, - said Alexander Gorbunov. – Earlier abbreviation VTTV stood for “Military techniques, armament technologies”, and now it stands for “High technologies, armament techniques”. This correction will be seen on this exhibition, where not only military techniques will be shown, but also civil production.

- The congress part of the exhibition is developed in Omsk and the demonstrative one – in Nizhny Tagil. For FD exhibitions, for military and civil production demonstration is important, but it is not the main part. Our advantage is the congress part and here Nizhny Tagil is not a competitor for us. Igor Shumakov added that exhibition in Nizhny Tagil is specialized for MOE, it deffers from Omsk exhibition in techniques, problems and topics.
