DIMDEX will maintain its position as a premier platform to showcase the most advanced and latest technology in maritime defence and security. The event will attract international experts to discuss the latest trends and technology that offer solutions to maintain the stability and security of the seas and oceans. By creating this consistency, it plays a vital role protecting geopolitical and commercial interests, particularly international trade routes and waterborne commerce.
Staff Brigadier (SEA) Abdulbaqi Saleh Al Ansari, Chairman of the organising committee of DIMDEX said: “In today’s rapidly changing world it is imperative we visit our industry peers to keep abreast of the latest innovations and solutions, ensuring a bridge is created between innovators and end-users. Technological advancements occur fast and with an ever-evolving international defence landscape, these visits enable us to stay updated with the latest maritime defence and security advancements and to share expertise.”
“As we press ahead in producing the greatest edition for our centenary event, we are buoyed by volume of confirmations at DSEi for participation at DIMDEX, as we continue to generate strong leads and deeper ties in advance of March 2018.
