The eighth edition of the Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition and Conference (DIMDEX 2024) will take place from 4 to 6 March 2024 at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC).

Held Under the patronage of HH Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, Amir of the State of Qatar, DIMDEX 2024 is proudly hosted and organised by the Qatar Armed Forces and will be held this year under the theme of “Igniting the future of maritime security and beyond.”

The event is already primed for major success, having received an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response from exhibitors and participants, both domestically and internationally.

Since its inception in 2008, DIMDEX has witnessed continuous growth to become a staple event in the international maritime defence and security industry calendar. In addition to the main exhibition, DIMDEX hosts the Middle East Naval Commanders Conference (MENC), a highlight of each edition that attracts key leaders from around the world to discuss the latest trends, challenges and solutions in maritime defence and security.

DIMDEX will also include the participation of key decision makers represented by VIP delegations and feature the popular visiting warship display at Hamad Port, which will provide attendees an opportunity to explore modern naval warships. The event will also spotlight emerging technologies that include cybersecurity software, anti-piracy systems, artificial intelligence (AI), C5ISR systems and unmanned systems.
