Leonardo Italian multinational company has announced launching its first Virtual Exhibition that will focus on Naval capabilities for Middle Eastern maritime security. This step by Leonardo will break the obstacle of physical distance caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Leonardo's first virtual exhibition, starting on 6th of July, aims to maintain its marketing focus on its products and platforms. The exhibition is virtually set in the Middle East, where maritime security is key and Leonardo’s platforms and technologies are operationally-proven on board of more than 30 vessels.
"The event, based on a dedicated online platform and named “Leonardo Naval Defence for the Middle East. A virtual experience”, comes as the Company’s first commercial-dedicated activity since the worldwide lockdown, when Leonardo – without stopping its production – promptly implemented action to ensure the health and safety of its employees and undertook a series of solidarity initiatives to support the efforts made by governments and emergency responders against the pandemic emergency," said the company in a press release.
Over 30 vessels in the Middle East are equipped with Leonardo naval systems. Additionally, the company is already involved in Navy’s modernisation programmes and in partnerships in the naval sector in the region, and is providing refit and upgrade solutions for existing fleets, with new weapon control systems, training services and logistics.
