The Indo Pacific 2023 International Maritime Exposition is taking place from 7-9 November 2023, with the theme, ‘Fleet 2035: Sea Power and the Future of Maritime Warfare’. Drawing military delegations from over 40 nations and more than 700 defence industry organisations, ADM is on the floor to report on new technology, partnerships and company updates.
