Atul Chandra - : Apr 11, 2021 - : 7:29 pm

The organising committee of the Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition & Conference (DIMDEX) has announced that preparations are underway for the next edition, which will take place from the 21st to 23rd of March 2022 at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC).

DIMDEX 2022 is set to take place under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, Amir of the State of Qatar and the seventh edition will be proudly hosted and organised by Qatar Armed Forces.

DIMDEX 2022, which is one of the first few live, non-virtual defence shows scheduled to take place since the COVID-19 pandemic, will highlight the resilience of the global defence industry that has not just braved the pandemic but emerged stronger from it.

The exhibition will bring together an unprecedented number of government officials, chief executives, industry leaders, key decision makers and exhibitors under one roof.

DIMDEX 2022 continues with its theme and vision of ‘Connecting the World’s Maritime Defence and Security Community’, in keeping with its status as one of the premier events in the global maritime defence and security calendar.

On his expectations for the upcoming edition, Staff Brigadier (Sea) Abdulbaqi Saleh Al-Ansari, Chairman of DIMDEX said: “With a year left until the next edition, we continue to strive to present another outstanding edition of DIMDEX. We draw confidence from the manner in which the global defence and security sector responded to the pandemic by introducing new technologies to swiftly address emerging needs. We are extremely thrilled with the overwhelming support we are getting from our exhibitors, sponsors and partners, as they confirm their participation in the next edition.”

Among the other highlights of the three-day event are the Middle East Naval Commanders Conference (MENC), in which thought leaders from around the globe will discuss the latest trends related to maritime defence and security, and the popular visiting warships display at Hamad Port.

Qatar’s commitment towards the domestic defence and security sector is reflected in the support DIMDEX 2022 is receiving from local defence and security companies as well as Qatar government entities.

Although primarily a maritime defence exhibition, various branches of the Qatar Armed Forces will participate at the event, not only to showcase their assets and capabilities but also to interact with the industry and exchange views about new and emerging technologies.

DIMDEX 2022is shaping up to be the biggest ever with the exhibition landscaped over 35,000 sqm. China, France, India, Italy, Turkey and USA have confirmed the presence of their national pavilions. Underscoring the growing international reputation of the event, companies from these nations as well as others have expressed significant interest in joining the list of exhibitors. Agreements worth over USD 32 billion were signed across the previous editions

DIMDEX has  witnessed exponential growth since its since its launch in 2008 and is now regarded as a not-to-miss event on the international defence and security industry calendar, one that drives commercial partnerships and acts as a bridge between industry and government.
