MAST Europe 2016 – NATO’s Naval Readiness to Respond to Emerging 21st Century Threats

The tenth anniversary edition of MAST (Maritime/Air Systems & Technologies) will take place under the auspices of the Royal Netherlands Navy, Defence Materiel Organisation, and NIDV.

The thirteenth MAST conference will focus on the primary issues facing regional navies and their global allies.

The trade-show will unite all prospective suppliers to both upcoming Dutch navy programmes (Submarines/Frigates/MCM units) and the procurement requirements of “priority” countries’ navies with the senior level operators and technologists shaping future defence operations.

MAST’s bespoke VIPs/Hosted buyers programme – with full support of Lieutenant General RNLMC Rob Verkerk, Commander of Royal Netherlands Navy – will invite from guests from:

  • NATO/Europe (Canada, France, Germany, (Netherlands), Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, UK, USA);
  • Other Europe (Sweden);
  • Asia/Pacific (Australia, India, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam);
  • and Gulf States (Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE)

Numerous social and networking functions (most free-of-charge) will make sure you are never far from the action, and in easy contact with your local counterparts, colleagues, from the global maritime defence community.

Ship visits will demonstrate exhibitor’s offerings in ‘real-work’ scenarios, on board state-of-the-art units from US (invited) and Dutch navies.

Colocating again with NATO’s Naval Armaments Group’s annual meeting will put you in touch with its representative armaments directors.

To get the global perspective on future naval/naval-air operations and technologies, MAST is a MUST.

Information trusted and acted upon by services, government, Research & Technology, and defence industry leaders worldwide.
