Standing-room only at MAST Asia briefing

Wed 24 Feb 2016 @ 12:43

With over 120 attendees, interest in Wednesday’s sponsors/VIPs/media briefing in Tokyo for MAST Asia 2017 well exceeded expectations.

Exhibition stand bookings and reservations were taken, and the top level sponsorship is now reserved (sponsor to be announced soon).

Professor Satoshi Morimoto (MAST Asia Chairman, former Defence Minister, and current Advisor to Defence Minister) headed the list of speakers, and outlined the plans to develop Japan’s only international defence trade show, conference, and network enabler.

The post-briefing was also well attended, giving participants a chance to swap stories and insights over a few sakes and sushi.

Prospective sponsors and exhibitors can sign up now by contacting any of the MAST team (Europe or Japan based).

Ahead of MAST Asia 2017, attendees to MAST Europe this June will have the opportunity to meet key Japanese government figures in Amsterdam.

MAST Europe Call for Papers oversubscribed

Wed 10 Feb 2016 @ 10:18

The MAST Technical Conference Committee had an immense task in allocating (only the best) papers into this year’s conference programme (received from the well-oversubscribed Call for Papers), and had to reject more abstracts than previously.

Authors will be informed of the committee’s decision via the MAST secretariat on 16th February, and as the timetable will show, four parallel technical sessions are necessary to accommodate such a high number of top quality papers.

Early-bird delegate registration is now open until 15th April, at which time the “pre-show” rates will come into effect.
