Pacific 2015 International Maritime Exposition
Analox Military Systems Account Manager Jo Burke getting ready to speak about Integrated Atmosphere Management at Pacific 2015
[16/10/15] Sitting on a ferry in pleasant 30-degree heat, wasn’t a bad way to get to work last week.
This was the main mode of transport to Glebe Island in Sydney, host to the Exhibition Centre where Pacific 15 was being held.
Since its inception in 2000, this was the second exposition of the biennial show Analox Military Systems (AMS) has attended. The international maritime exhibition allows commercial maritime and naval defence industries to promote their services and capabilities to visiting delegates from across the world.
The exhibition saw nearly 500 companies showcase their capabilities. Our booth sat alongside other businesses from the UK, on the UKTI pavilion. Conferences and presentations were conducted in purpose-built areas within the centre covering a range of topics including Indonesia's global maritime fulcrum - a closer look at an integrated maritime strategy, Future navy driven by science and technology and of course, the popular subject of the SEA 1000 project, Australia’s future submarine plan.
AMS attended with Atmosphere Control International (ACI) in order to highlight a complete solution to atmosphere monitoring. The team were able to speak to key delegations regarding the proposed SEA 1000 Project to highlight the businesses capabilities within the submarine sector and throughout the naval sector.
Our ACG+, a portable or fixed compressed air monitor, which can provide 24/7 continuous monitoring, was on display throughout the show, attracting navy divers and surface ship equipment specialists from a range of different countries.
Delegates and visitors were able to attend daily tours around HMAS Sydney which was moored alongside the exhibition hall and were treated to an end of show spectacular consisting of an impressive RAN helicopter display and fireworks to finish.
The show provides a professional platform for naval defence industries to share knowledge and gain intelligence into future developments, billing itself as the only comprehensive international exhibition of its kind in the Asia Pacific Region, it certainly was a worthy show to attend.
