Kuala Lumpur, MARCH 5, 2020 - Defence Services Asia (DSA) 2020 and NATSEC Asia 2020, Asia’s largest defence and security exhibition have been rescheduled to 24 to 27 August 2020. However, both mega events, which were initially slated from 20 to 23 April, will still be held at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre
(MITEC) in Kuala Lumpur.
The postponement was decided following careful consideration and consultations with Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Home Affairs and stakeholders following the current uncertainties in the wake of the COVID-19 concern which has resulted in global travel disruptions and other circumstances.
According to Tan Sri Asmat Kamaludin, Chairman of DSA Exhibition & Conference Sdn Bhd, organizer of the two major events, the decision was unanimous and there was no
question about rescheduling despite the event being less than two months away.
“With the expected 1,500 participating companies from over 60 countries, some 350 VIP delegations from 30 countries and the expected 50,000 visitors from all corners of the
world, it was only prudent to look at a revised date. We wanted to ensure a conducive and productive business environment for our stakeholders, exhibitors and visitors when the events get underway”.
DSA 2020 and NATSEC Asia 2020 are hosted, supported and co-organised by the Malaysian Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) and Ministry of Home Affairs. For further information on DSA 2020 and NATSEC Asia 2020, visit www.dsaexhibition.com respectively.
