If a rising tide lifts all boats, the forecast for the global maritime defense industry should put some wind in your sails. Heightened homeland security requirements, new challenges to long-standing multinational alliances and the rogue threat of piracy are boosting demand for ships and equipment to protect public and private interests at sea. Oh, and did we mention that three-quarters of the Earth’s surface is water?

Our maritime business is anchored in the Persian Gulf and Asia-Pacific, two of the world’s most strategically vital and active shipping regions for crude oil, derivative energy products and dry cargo. Corresponding demand for maritime defense platforms, weapons and infrastructure support to keep commerce flowing makes these regions perennial prospects for U.S. manufacturers and suppliers.

Kallman has been the official U.S. representative of Australia’s Pacific International Maritime Exposition for 10 years. In 2015 we managed nearly 1,000 sqm of space in support of 20 leading suppliers ranging from publicly traded OEMs to small- and medium-sized enterprises. Likewise at DIMDEX in Doha, Qatar’s most prominent defense and security trade event, our U.S. International Pavilion covered some 1,500 sqm serving 16 leading American suppliers. In addition, our Creative Services division builds custom stands at these and other maritime defense events around the world, including Exponaval (Vine del Mar, Chile) and Sea, Air, Space (Washington, DC).
