DEFENSE & SECURITY 2013
The U.S. Department of Commerce Trade Fair Certification Program has granted Trade Fair Certification to the U.S. Pavilion at Defense & Security 2013. The show, which is being held in Bangkok, Thailand in November, proved to be an excellent venue for American companies to showcase their products to a broad international market at previous events.
Certification was based on this previous success. Areas featured in 2012 included aerospace, airport security, and a wide variety of defense and security technologies.
Certification of Defense & Security by the US Department of Commerce was based on the previous success in providing opportunities for US exhibitors seeking business in Thailand and throughout South East Asia.
For over four years Thailand’s military has seen annual funding increase by an average of over 4 billion (USD). And to ensure continuity and modernization of the country’s armed forces, US manufacturers are expected to retain their position as the largest supplier of defense equipment to the country.
PAVILIONS AT SHOW GROW IN POPULARITY
The 2009 exhibition featured a dozen national pavilions from the USA, Germany, Czech Republic, France, Korea, Israel, Singapore, Belarus, Russia, Poland and Thailand. Since the show began in 2003 the United States has always had the largest pavilion which has featured such well-known companies as Lockheed Martin, AM General, Colt, US Ordnance, Harris, Columbia Helicopters, General Dynamics, Microsoft and others. Fighter jets, armored vehicles, helicopters, handguns, software simulators and electronic communications equipment will make up part of this year’s display.
2013 TO BE LARGEST SHOW YET
Defense & Security 2013 is expected to have exhibitors from 32 countries and visitors from over 50 nations. Over 200 official and non-official delegations from 25 countries have been invited and there is little doubt this will be one of the most important defense and security exhibitions in South East Asia - and the best in the successful series to date.
