With LinkedIn’s Maritime Systems & Technologies LinkedIn Group set to hit 1,000 members this week, you have access to an effective global forum to capture and crystallise the discussions before, during and after MAST conferences/exhibitions.

Join the MAST team!

Wed 15 Jan 2014 @ 11:00


Due to recent growth and development of MAST into Asia and MENA regions, we are seeking two self-motivated and performance motivated individuals to join the international MAST staff.

Experience of the maritime security/defence sector is ideal, but not as essential as drive, commitment and ability to work from home and/or on the move.

  1. Exhibition marketing/sales account manager to gather, disseminate and sell on market information. Ability to develop and maintain a portfolio of key accounts, and plan of sales activities in MENA and Asian regions.
  2. Conference sales/marketing. Unmatchable remuneration for the perfect candidate in this dual role: develop and sell to existing/prospective portfolio of MAST delegates; coordinate research and quality control measure at/after conferences, and helping conference administrator. Broad understanding of maritime/security defence sector technologies desirable, but not essential. Flexible hours and contract.

Immediate high earning potential for both positions. Flexible hours, basic salary and full-time or part-time contract available after probation.


Northrop Grumman return to MAST

Sun 12 Jan 2014 @ 11:00

Market leading defence contractor Northrop Grumman has today confirmed that it will exhibit at MAST in Istanbul this May.

This will be the first time the company has exhibited at MAST for several years, and is a high profile addition to a rapidly growing exhibition. As the exhibitor list will show soon, confirmations and reservations for MAST EurAsia 2014 exhibition could make this MAST three times the size of last year’s exhibition, and the largest MAST exhibition to date.

MAST outgrows venue!

Sun 12 Jan 2014 @ 11:00

As the MAST Community’s more astute members will have already noticed, MAST has switched venues!

The reason: For the first time in the event series' history, the exhibition has outsold the original space booked.

MAST is therefore delighted to announce that it will take place at Istanbul’s most prestigious conference and exhibition centre (the ICEC), directly on the banks of the Bosphorus (close to where anticipated ship visits will take place).


Turkish Navy confirms ship visit support

Sun 12 Jan 2014 @ 11:00

The Turkish Navy has confirmed the presence of one or more units during MAST EurAsia.

The exact vessel is yet to be confirmed, but as usual will give exhibitors a great marketing opportunity to showcase their onboard systems.


RAYTHEON returns to MAST

Tue 7 Jan 2014 @ 11:00

We are delighted to announce that (after a four year hiatus from MAST) several divisions of Raytheon will contribute to MAST EurAsia with a significant exhibition presence this May.

As the exhibitor list (to be published in the coming months) will show, many of the large global defence/security organisations notably missing from MAST exhibitions prior to the new management team will make a welcome return this year.

Many of these companies are actively courting customers in the MENA and Asian regions, to which Istanbul offers excellent access, so small surprise MAST EurAsia is the first MAST in a while that they have supported.

Visitors can expect exclusive product briefings, and delegates in-depth discussions on future and state-of-the art operations and technologies.
