MAST Asia 2019 early bird delegates increase in both number and diversity

Wed 19 Sep 2018 @ 11:46

Registrations for MAST Asia 2019 (the third edition of Japan’s only international defence trade-show and conference to date) are already higher than for the same period in 2017 (and started much earlier).

Additionally, the domain profile of delegates has expanded beyond naval and air, to include amphibious forces (so far from Japan, Malaysia, and US).

The effect of this growth of participants on total numbers is not yet known, but expected to exceed the 4,300+ received in 2017, and MAST Asia’s organisers plan to host over 300 international VIPs/hosted buyers.

Attending Chiefs of Navy and Airforce and defence ministries’ personnel from Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam are expected to join a second edition of the Japan:ASEAN Summit organised on behalf of Japan’s Ministry of Defence/Acquisition Technology and Logistics Agency, which was first held directly after MAST in 2017.

If you want to meet the most senior operators, technologists and policy makers from Japan (and ASEAN nations), MAST is a MUST.
