The Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition and Conference (DIMDEX 2024), is proud to announce Barzan Holdings as a Strategic Partner and Gold Sponsor of its eighth edition which will take place from 4 to 6 March 2024 at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC).

DIMDEX 2024 is held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, Amir of the State of Qatar, hosted and organised by the Qatar Armed Forces. The eighth edition of the biannual event is under the theme of “Igniting the Future of Maritime Security and Beyond.”

The signing ceremony took place at the Ministry of Defence, in the presence of Staff Lieutenant General (Pilot) Salem bin Hamad bin Mohammed bin Aqeel Al Nabit, Chief of Staff of Qatar Armed Forces. The agreement was signed by Staff Brigadier (Sea) Abdulbaqi Saleh Al-Ansari, Chairman of DIMDEX and Mohammed Al Marri, Deputy CEO of Barzan Holdings.

This collaboration reflects the efforts of national companies in supporting major events and showcasing the development of defence capabilities in Qatar. DIMDEX also serves as a crucial platform for these companies to exchange knowledge and expertise with international companies, enhancing business opportunities with various high-level delegations attending the event.

Staff Lieutenant General (Pilot) Salem bin Hamad bin Mohammed bin Aqeel Al Nabit, Chief of Staff of Qatar Armed Forces stated: “The Qatar Armed Forces endeavor to develop their military industries and rely on local capabilities to secure many of their needs. This is part of Qatar National Vision that will contribute to enhancing our forces’ capabilities and maintaining their constant readiness to deal with various challenges. We will continue to collaborate with our local and international partners to achieve our strategic goals and elevate our capabilities to the highest levels.”

Staff Brigadier (Sea) Abdulbaqi S. Al-Ansari, Chairman of DIMDEX, said: “We are pleased to welcome once again the Barzan Holdings Group as a Gold Sponsor and Strategic Partner of DIMDEX, confirming the interest of our national companies to contribute to the success of one of the most significant events held in Qatar. DIMDEX will be a valuable platform for Barzan Holdings and various national companies to showcase their capabilities to official delegations and visitors from around the world. This collaboration will benefit both parties and contribute to enhancing the local firms’ position in the defence domain internationally.”

Barzan Holdings Group is the first company specialised in supporting the military capabilities of the Qatari Armed Forces and has provided sponsorship and support to DIMDEX since its launch in 2018.

Barzan Holdings Group has strengthened its strategic partnerships with leading international defence companies and organisations to enhance the national defence system.

Commenting on Barzan Holdings’ involvement in DIMDEX 2024, Deputy CEO Mohammed Al Marri said: “Barzan Holdings is proud to once again participate in the exhibition as a Strategic Partner and Gold Sponsor.”

This year’s edition focusses on “Igniting the Future of Maritime Security and Beyond” underscores the event’s key contribution to the global conversation on the best means to ensure stability, Mr. Al Marri added. “Against the backdrop of the latest regional security development, this year’s Middle East Naval Commanders Conference, a key feature of the exhibition since 2008, holds great importance in terms of driving collaboration on strategic resilience.”

DIMDEX serves as a crucial platform for catalyzing business opportunities in Qatar. It plays a key role in enhancing the defence capabilities of the Qatari Armed Forces, thereby bolstering their preparedness to facilitate hosting major international events. This, in turn, contributes to fostering the country’s economic growth in alignment with Qatar’s National Vision 2030.

Since its inception in 2008, DIMDEX has witnessed continuous growth to become a leading event in the international maritime defence and security industry calendar.

In addition to the main exhibition that will showcase the latest products and technologies, DIMDEX also hosts the Middle East Naval Commanders Conference (MENC), a highlight of each edition that attracts thought leaders from around the world to discuss the latest trends related to maritime defence and security. It will also feature the popular visiting warship display at the state-of-the-art Hamad Port, and the participation of key decision makers represented by VIP delegations.
