Admission to the Exhibition is complimentary and open to trade visitors and professionals only. With the growing importance of maritime commerce in an increasingly complex and volatile security landscape, as well as having naval fleets due for renewal, Asia Pacific navies are continuing their drive to improve defence capabilities. According to “Asia-Pacific Defense Outlook 2016” report by Deloitte, naval budgets are projected to grow by more than 60% above their 2010 levels by 2019.
Maritime Safety & Security
While the Asia Pacific’s growth prospects face a challenging economic backdrop of slowing global trade, the region continues to be the growth engine of the world economy with maritime commerce remaining a key driver. And while potential security issues in other regions may be primarily land-based, the major challenges to peace and security in the Asia Pacific region are increasingly located at sea. Smuggling, piracy and other illicit activities with potential links to terrorism require close attention; tensions in North East Asia and territorial disputes in the South China Sea continue to dominate the headlines. With such a complex defence and maritime security landscape, coupled with the need for naval fleet renewal, it is evident why military outlays in Asia and Oceania grew 5.4% in 2015, outpacing the 1% rise globally.
As Asia Pacific's flagship maritime defence show, IMDEX Asia provides a neutral platform for the showcase of maritime safety and security solutions to key decision makers in the industry. The show also demonstrates its thought leadership in the field of maritime safety and security through the organisation of the prestigious International Maritime Security Conference.
The high-level conference, together with the show's signature VIP Delegation Programme, brings together Chiefs of Navy, Directors-General of Coast Guard, government officials and key industry players around the world for an unparalleled opportunity to network, exchange ideas and explore collaborations.
