Some of the world’s biggest companies in maritime defense technology will exhibit a range of cutting-edge products including electronics, security systems and military craft at an upcoming exhibition in Doha.
The third edition of Doha International Maritime Defense Exhibition & Conference (DIMDEX) will be held at the new Qatar National Convention Centre from 26 to 28 March 2012.
Participating industry giants include Cassidian, DCNS, Diehl, Finnmecannica, Lockheed Martin, Lürssen, MDBA, MTU, Nakilat Damen, Raytheon, RMK Marine, Saab, Thales, among others.
DIDMEX 2012 is poised to provide an ideal setting for marine defense technology companies from around the world to benefit from the increasingly strong demand in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region for the latest in naval equipment.
DIMDEX 2012 will not only feature commercial heavyweights at the exhibition, however, but also host the Middle East Naval Commanders Conference (MENC) that brings senior naval commanders, policy-makers, government officials and analysts together to Doha to discuss key strategic developments in the maritime field.
“DIMDEX is a truly international exhibition and conference, and a leader in its field, which is reflected by the eager return of these global players to Doha to showcase their innovative technologies and benefit from our prosperous market,” said Staff Brigadier (Sea) Mohammed Bin Nasser Al Mohannadi, Chairman of DIMDEX 2012.
“The participation of numerous industry giants demonstrates that DIMDEX 2012 is both the pre-eminent maritime defense event in the Mena region and a force to be reckoned with on the international defense industry circuit,” he added.
“The combination of big industry and defense procurement decision-makers attending the exhibition, together with favorable market conditions in the Mena region means that DIMDEX 2012 will provide excellent business opportunities for all,” Al Mohannadi concluded.
