RECORD NUMBERS OF FOREIGN NAVAL DELEGATIONS TO ATTEND PACIFIC

PACIFIC 2015 has attracted an unprecedented number of international naval delegations.

No fewer than 58 foreign naval missions, from 47 countries, have signalled their intention to attend the event.

It will be the largest number of overseas naval delegations ever to visit a PACIFIC Exposition with groups coming from throughout the Asia Indo-Pacific region, Europe and the Americas.

Countries include the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Saudi Arabia, India, China, Korea and Japan.

Naval delegations from Africa and South America will also be in attendance.

Their presence will provide an opportunity for exhibitors to network with key military decision makers from around the world.

PACIFIC 2015 CEO Ian Honnery said the delegations will be at Chief of Navy or counterpart level. “We are delighted to play host to such a senior array of naval leaders from all corners of the globe,” he said. “Their presence at the exposition will greatly enhance the opportunities for exhibiting companies to expand their client base and seek out new markets.” “Further it will allow them to showcase their technologies, products and services before an informed and focussed audience of potential buyers.”

The event organiser, Maritime Australia Limited, is also working closely with Austrade in Asia to attract both naval and merchant marine industry delegations to PACIFIC 2015.

Australia’s non-defence trade and export sectors will be the focus of a Leaders’ Lunch for Trade, Defence and Industry, to be hosted by the Chief of Navy on Wednesday 7 October.

PACIFIC 2015 will be a major learning and networking occasion for the visiting naval and commercial maritime delegates who will come to compare and evaluate new technologies and products.
