08 Feb LIMA 2017
The Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA) is the largest show of its kind within the Asia Pacific region. Its impressive list of international exhibitors and suppliers is more than matched by the supportive presence of industry elites, which range from senior Government officials, and military and civil delegates, to industry movers and shakers and more.
Held biennially since its debut in 1991, LIMA is an ideal platform where industry stakeholders could engage and expand their networks towards forging new partnerships and business agreements. Its insightful round tables and conferences, as well as business forums offer access to invaluable information that enables businesses to stay ahead of the competition and seize new opportunities in the dynamic market of Asia Pacific.
LIMA is an ideal platform not just to showcase the latest technologies and services, but also to reach out and engage with the targeted audience and buyers.
Hosted at one of the most strategic locations in Asia Pacific, LIMA is the world’s only showcase that combines commercial, civil and defence sectors of both the maritime and aerospace industries into a single impactful event. Its continued influence and success is evident in LIMA’s steady growth on all fronts.
In 2015, LIMA achieved an impressive RM9.29 billion worth of business, all of which were inked at the official MOU Signing Ceremony alone; a 121% increase from the RM4.27 billion signed at LIMA’13. This trend is forecasted to continue in 2017, retaining LIMA’s position as a significant gateway to Asia Pacific’s dynamic maritime and aerospace markets.
