Why Pacific 2019?

From its home port in Sydney, Pacific 2019 affords access to the vast Indo-Asia-Pacific region, where geo-political shifts and economic growth are pushing waves of maritime modernization spending from India to Australia and along the western Pacific Rim.

The forecast for maritime sales in this part of the world looks like "full speed ahead" for the next decade, and Pacific 2019 puts more of this potential within your reach. Established in 2000, this proven event has consistently grown and diversified to help exhibitors keep up with the trends and in front of more buyers. First-class, contemporary exhibit space and support services, highly regarded conference programs, distinguished delegations all managed by the outstanding team at Industry Defence and Security Australia Limited make Pacific 2017 one of the world's great trade show destinations.

Introducing Australia's next anti-submarine warship

 

Why Exhibit in the USA Partnership Pavilion?

The USA Partnership Pavilion at Pacific 2019 will occupy more than 1,000 sqm of space in a prime location of the International Convention Center Sydney (ICC Sydney).  The last edition of this illustrious maritime exposition hosted more than 546 companies from 22 countries, all making a concerted effort to gain exposure and attention to the maritime and naval defense decision-maker delegations in attendance.  The alliance between the United States and Australia is a true bilateral partnership that gives American exhibitors a secure advantage in the USA Partnership Pavilion at Pacific 2019 (and all of our other events in this region). 

In addition to our suite of end-to-end exhibitor services, the USA VIP Partnership Reception is a prestigious and highly anticipated event on the social calendar at Pacific 2019. The reception will be attended by high ranking U.S. government officials and Chiefs of Navy, Navy Senior Leadership Group, and International VIPs of Industry. Chiefs of Navy who attended the 2017 event included: VADM, Tim Barrett-Australia, Rear Admiral Alan John Ogilvie Martin-New Zealand, RADM Miroslaw Mordel-Poland and Rear Admiral Ryo Saki-Japan.

"The United States is by far the largest foreign investor in Australia, accounting for over a quarter of its foreign investment. The 2005 Australia-U.S. Free Trade Agreement has nearly doubled our goods trade and increased our services trade by more than 122 percent," according to the U.S. State Department.

We look forward to working with you in Sydney!
