DSA 2018 Wrap-Up

U.S. Results at Defence Services Asia & NATSEC 2018 
Set Stage for 2020 Success!


As the world's leading aerospace and defense supplier, the United States is well-positioned to compete for Malaysian and ASEAN defense and security budgets at Defence Services Asia (DSA) 2020, the region’s premier defense and security expo. 

Whether you’re already selling here or just getting started, capitalize on America’s strong bilateral alliances and Kallman Worldwide’s proven experience organizing U.S. companies at expos throughout the Indo-Asia-Pacific region to grow your share of this important market.




 2018 WRAP-UP 





With its move to the new Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) in Kuala Lumpur, DSA 2018 hosted more than 1,200 suppliers and 40,000 buyers from 40-plus countries.

  • Of the nearly 40 U.S. companies exhibiting at the show, most were located in the new USA Partnership Pavilion, organized by Kallman Worldwide, Inc., in coordination with government agencies, including the U.S. departments of Commerce, Defense and State.
  • Twelve of those U.S. exhibitors were also featured in the USA “Showcase” in the inaugural International Exhibition on National Security for Asia (NATSEC), colocated with DSA 2018. U.S. surveillance, security, weapons and field-level support products and services were on display.
  • The USA VIP Partnership Reception brings together a cross-section of U.S. stakeholders and their counterparts from across the Indo-Asia-Pacific region to network and share insights while enjoying a well-earned break from the exhibit floor.


Opening day at DSA draws the most senior U.S. officials in-country and their counterparts from Malaysia and throughout the ASEAN region. The 2018 Ribbon Cutting for the USA Partnership Pavilion was attended by U.S. Ambassador to Malaysia, Kamala Shirin Lakhdhir and General Robert B. Brown, Commanding General of the U.S. Army Pacific (USARPAC). 

• DSA is renowned for its superbly-run delegation management program — the 2018 show hosted some 350 VVIP delegations from over 40 countries including Australia, Indonesia and Thailand. Expect a similarly steady stream of military buyers to visit the USA Partnership Pavilion in 2020. 

• The success of DSA is a direct reflection of Malaysia’s national pride in welcoming industry leaders to Kuala Lumpur every two years. In a spirit of partnership and friendship, Kallman Worldwide, is proud to give back — nation-to-nation, as a grateful representative of the United States of America, and people-to-people, as a responsible global citizen. 

At DSA 2018, on behalf of U.S. exhibitors, Kallman Worldwide recognized the work of Institut Onn Ja’afar (IOJ), a non-profit outreach organization based in the inner city of Chow Lit in Kuala Lumpur. Learn more at www.institutonnjaafar.com
