Maritime/Air Systems & Technologies

International Trade-show, Conference, and Community Enabler

The tenth anniversary edition of MAST (Maritime/Air Systems & Technologies) took place in June 2016 under the auspices of the Royal Netherlands Navy, Defence Materiel Organisation, and NIDV

In June 2017, the fourteenth MAST conference and trade-show will focus on the primary issues facing regional navies and their global allies.

The trade-show will unite all prospective suppliers to both upcoming Dutch navy programmes (Submarines/Frigates/MCM units) and the procurement requirements of “priority” countries’ navies with the senior level operators and technologists shaping future defence operations.

MAST’s bespoke VIPs/Hosted buyers programme – with full support of Lieutenant General RNLMC Rob Verkerk, Commander of Royal Netherlands Navy – will invite guests from:

  • NATO/Europe – Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, UK, USA
  • Other Europe – Sweden
  • Asia/Pacific – Australia, India, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam
  • and Gulf States – Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE

Numerous social and networking functions (most free-of-charge) will make sure you are never far from the action, and in easy contact with your local counterparts, colleagues, from the global maritime defence community.


Ship visits demonstrate exhibitor’s offerings in ‘real-work’ scenarios, on board state-of-the-art units from invited naval units.

To get the global perspective on future naval/naval-air operations and technologies, MAST is a MUST.
