About PACIFIC 2015

From its beginnings in 2000, the Pacific International Maritime Exposition (known as PACIFIC) has grown to be an important forum for the maritime and defence industries in Australia and the region. It is now a highlight on the industry calendar, with key decision-makers from Australia, Asia and the Indo-Pacific in attendance.

For exhibitors, PACIFIC provides the opportunity for global companies to create brand affiliation with key defence stakeholders, launch new products and technologies, seek out new partnerships and examine the competitor technologies.

PACIFIC 2015 was held at the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island, and Microhire was the official supplier for audio visual technology. Our team helped both the event organiser and exhibitors communicate their message and maximise impact in front of key stakeholders.

PACIFIC 2015 was a resounding success. In total, the event attracted a record number of exhibiting companies, foreign delegates and global leaders in the field from a range of countries including USA, UK, France and Germany.

“As a technology showcase for Australia, Asia and the Indo-Pacific it is second to none,” says PACIFIC CEO Ian Honnery. “It offers a unique networking and learning opportunity and is a direct conduit to many of the key decision makers in naval defence and the maritime industry.”

PACIFIC 2015 built on the international reputation of the brand, continuing to put Australia at the forefront of the industry. We’re proud to have been a key part of the exhibition, and look forward to its continued expansion in the future.
