Surface Warships and OPV Asia Conference

Combatting the full spectrum of maritime threats

April 1-30, 2023- Busan, Korea (South)

Surface Warships & Offshore Patrol Vessels Asia 2022

Following on from the success of our International Surface Warships & OPV International Conference in London, we are delighted to be launching the inaugural dedicated Surface Warships Asia event in Busan, South Korea in April 2023. (Dates to be announced soon)

The track record of our international conference in attracting truly global participation is unrivalled, drawing in senior military and industry leaders from the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. This breadth of attendance and the personal contributions we have had from the First Sea Lord, the U.S. Deputy Under Secretary of Defense, many Heads of Navy and Fleet Commanders, as well as Royal Navy, NATO and regional Navy Commanders, underpins the significance of international collaboration and exchange of ideas. However, we understand that more regional issues can sometimes be lost in an international audience.

Our dedicated Asia-Pacific conference will evaluate the unique political and operational issues of the region. What will be in particular focus is the rapid modernisation programmes of the regions Navies. Surface Warships & Offshore Patrol Vessels Asia will provide a unique opportunity to hear  Naval Chiefs and Programme Managers from the region outline their objectives and requirements for the future.
