DSA & NATSEC Asia 2018 Concludes with Record Breaking Numbers

It has been more than two weeks since the 30th Anniversary Edition of DSA 2018 and the inaugural NATSEC Asia 2018 came to a very successful close. Held from 16 to 19 April 2018 at the Malaysian International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) in Kuala Lumpur, both exhibitions set a brand new record.

Our first mention of thanks must go out to all our Exhibitors; old and new whom were the real heroes in making the two shows the success it has achieved. The record breaking 1500 participating companies from 68 nations is testament of how vital these events have become in serving as the Regional hub.  

The success of the unique collaboration of the two shows was a joined effort of many strong supporters specifically the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Home Affairs, Malaysia. As Organisers, we are truly indebted to everyone who were part of the organising committees with special mention to Dato' Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Deputy Prime Minister & Minister of Home Affairs and Dato' Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, Minister of Defence & Minister for Special Functions.

We also extend our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to Malaysian Armed Forces, Royal Malaysia Police, National Security Council, Royal Malaysian Customs Department, Immigration Department of Malaysia, Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, Malaysian Prison Department, Fire & Rescue Department of Malaysia MATRADE and Royal Malaysia Police Cooperative Limited for their commitment and dedication in making the event a bigger success beyond expectations.

The show witnessed an increase of 15% of total exhibition square metres and attendance of 50,000 visitors from 56 countries (up 16% compared with the 2016 edition), setting a new record for the show.

The1,500 exhibiting companies from 68 countries had the pleasure of meeting 350 VIP delegations from 44 countries - another record breaking attendance.
