MS&D - international conference on maritime security and defence

7 September 2016

Unique opportunities for collaboration between civil and military attendees

Following the resounding success of the previous MS&D conferences, this supporting programme has become an important feature of SMM.

The international conference on maritime security and defence offers a variety of opportunities for civil and military collaboration. The event is attended by high-ranking international experts who will present a variety of new strategies and solutions. Overall, this event offers a unique blend of theory (conference) and practice (exhibition).

Ideal platform

The entirely dedicated "maritime security & defence" exhibit area, which occupies its own separate exhibition hall (B8) at SMM, is an ideal platform for exploring new business opportunities and creating synergies.

SMM has never been stronger in terms of government and naval organisation involvement. The potential to interact with a variety of key players and professionals from the maritime industry is unrivalled.

The focus points of Maritime Security and Defence are:

  • Defence, surveillance and security systems
  • Sensors and communication
  • Command and information systems
  • Maritime safety, Terrorism and Piracy
  • Coast guard, port security and harbour protection
