The Indo Pacific 2022 International Maritime Exposition has kicked off in Sydney this week, with more than 700 defence industry businesses and military delegations from more than 40 nations in attendance.
Held at the International Conference Centre Sydney, the event also incorporates the Sea Power Conference 2022, making it the largest expo of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
The theme of Sea Power 2022 is ‘The Indo-Pacific Maritime Domain in the 21st Century – A Commonality of Purpose’.
“It’s great to see so many navies and defence industry businesses have been able to attend Indo Pacific 2022, which is the first maritime conference of this scale in Australia since the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Chief of Navy, Vice Admiral Michael Noonan.
“Nothing can beat face-to-face engagement and the relationships it forges.
“Indo Pacific 2022 will also be a great opportunity to work closely with defence industry businesses.”
