Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition (DIMDEX) 2014 is set to be the largest event for maritime defence and protection of critical offshore infrastructure. Rotary wing aircraft and unmanned systems are set to be an exciting new addition to the region’s leading naval defence exhibition. It will be held at the Qatar National Convention Centre between March 25 and 27 next year under the patronage of the Heir Apparent H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani. Held with the support of Qatar Armed Forces and hosted by the Qatar Emiri Naval Forces along with a strong commitment from neighbouring countries’ naval defence forces, DIMDEX 2014 is the definitive expo for the industry to take advantage of current and future procurement opportunities for all naval requirements across the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region. Brigadier Dr (Eng) Thani A Al Kuwari, Assistant Chief of Staff for Financial Affairs and Chairman of DIMDEX, said: “Qatar is bringing together the world’s leading commanders, industry leaders, key decision-makers, thinkers, academics, experts and buyers to exchange experiences, expand networks and develop future strategies for the maritime industry.” “DIMDEX creates a critical platform for companies to present the latest technological developments to meet the 21st century maritime security challenges,” he added. DIMDEX 2014 will build on previous editions. It is expected to see significant growth, with over 200 exhibiting companies and an increase on the 79 delegations from 54 countries and over 9,000 trade visitors received in 2012. The Peninsula
