IMDEX Asia 2013 Set to Sail


May 13, 2013 - Singapore

15 warships from nine countries around the world, including the latest patrol vessels, frigates, corvettes and destroyers, sailed into Singapore for the Warships Display at IMDEX Asia 2013, taking place at Changi Exhibition Centre from 14 - 16 May 2013. The US Navy's first ever littoral combat ship, USS Freedom, in its maiden overseas deployment, was among the warships at Changi Naval Base.

The warships, from Australia, France, India, Indonesia, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and the USA, will be berthed at Changi Naval Base throughout the event. Trade visitors to IMDEX Asia will have the rare opportunity to board the warships, gain insight into operations on board and meet and network with senior naval officers.

"The continued support from foreign navies is testimony to the show's significance in the international maritime defence calendar," said Jimmy Lau, Managing Director of Experia Events, organiser of IMDEX Asia. "The strong presence of the foreign warships as well as the record number of navy chiefs in attendance this year is a clear signal of our delegates' confidence in IMDEX Asia, reflecting its role as a truly global platform."
