Set to be bigger and more diverse than ever before, the seventh edition of the Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition & Conference (DIMDEX 2020) will take place from 16 to 18 March 2020. With less than one year to go until key decision makers from the maritime defence and security industry meet in Qatar once again, DIMDEX organisers say that demand for exhibition space is high and have already received requests for bookings for the upcoming edition.
Held under the patronage of His Highness the Emir of the State of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, and proudly hosted and organised by Qatar Armed Forces, DIMDEX has grown each year since its launch in 2008 and is now internationally recognised as a platform for businesses from the global defence industry to showcase their latest technologies to government entities and industry peers to form new partnerships.
Focused on ‘Connecting the World’s Maritime Defence and Security Community’, DIMDEX 2020 will bring together the latest innovations and solutions under one roof. Participants will have access to an established delegation management system that offers a business matching service between the official VIP delegations and DIMDEX exhibitors. Thought leaders from around the globe will be sharing their expertise at the Middle East Naval Commanders Conference (MENC) and several international navies will display their warships at Hamad Port.
Strongly supported by His Excellency, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for Defence Affairs, Dr Khalid bin Mohamed Al-Attiyah, and the attendance of other Qatari military officials and government representatives, DIMDEX 2020 will continue to offer unprecedented opportunities to its participants. DIMDEX has a proven track record of delivering commercial opportunities for members of the maritime defence and security community. In 2018, it attracted 13,000 visitors from 69 countries and witnessed the signing of more than 35 agreements, partnerships, and memorandums of understanding.
