Sydney confirmed as location for MAST 2020

Tue 29 Nov 2016 @ 2:21


The soon to be opened ICC at Darling Harbour, Sydney has been confirmed as host for the 2020 edition of MAST: “MAST Asia-Pacific 2020”.

Working closely with various government authorities, not least DSTG (Defence Science and Technology Group), conference planning will start earlier than usual to embrace the many opportunities and benefits of interfacing with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) educational curriculum.

The trade-show is expected to be boosted by its timely coincidence with current and future naval/air procurement programmes in which many of the major exhibitors in next year’s MAST Asia, as well as upcoming MAST Europe and MAST Into-Asia events, are participating/competing.

Of historical note is that 2020 represents the 250th Anniversary of Captain Cook’s landing at Botany Bay, founding the east coast of Australia and naming it New South Wales.
