Pembury, United Kingdom, July 08, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- No doubt you will have read in last week’s international defence media (including Jane’s Defence Weekly, and Defense News) that the Australian Navy has surprised some analysts by appointing Navantia to design three Air Warfare Destroyers and two amphibious landing ships worth AUS$11 Billion.
The international programme includes companies spanning three continents including Lockheed Martin; Navantia; Saab; Tenix Defence.
Mirroring such globally spanning nature of defence and security business, MAST’s organisers remain committed to creating one truly global annual event, rather than running diluted regional events, in order to deliver maximum value to the community.
Thus, MAST participants will continue to see international representation in both its uniquely diverse, senior-level conference (discussing and debating future maritime – system of systems - capabilities, concepts and technologies) and trade-show.
The inaugural MAST event attracted participants from 39 countries (including Australia and other Asia-pacific countries), and it is the organisers’ intention to increase the volume and diversity of participation: “It is our aim to deliver a truly international event and give all MAST participants maximum value for money, enabling them to meet as many of their global contacts in one place, just once a year” said MAST Business Director, Jackie Baron.
