DSA 2016—Defence Services Asia

DSA 2016—Defence Services Asia


18-21 April, 2016, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The 15th edition of the DSA show was held at the Putra World Trade Center in Kuala Lumpur in April 2016. This is a mature show, well-known and very popular in the South East Asia region. It draws internationally, with many business deals being concluded at the show. These are usually pre-arranged as they are at all shows—the convenience of having your customers there in front of the community is an excellent opportunity for all.

SADJ has been attending DSA for over 17 years, and we consider it to be one of our favorite shows for not only seeing what’s new, meeting customers and networking, but Malaysia is a beautiful country, and KL (Kuala Lumpur) has incredible sightseeing and food opportunities.

ASEAN countries, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Czech RepublicvFrance, Germany, Hungary, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, USA
