LANGKAWI: Asia’s premier defence show Defence Services Asia (DSA) will be back on a bigger scale next year in a brand new location.

With an expansion of up to 30% in show size, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said DSA 2018 will be held at the Malaysia International Trade Exhibition Centre (MITEC) in Kuala Lumpur, the country’s largest exhibition venue.

He said DSA 2018 will also see the introduction of National Security Asia (NatSec Asia) – the International Exhibition on National Security for Asia.

“This is very timely especially when we are facing threats that we are not familiar with.

“We are now in a landscape that is so complex today with the blurring of lines between security and defence, the blurring of responsibility between agencies be it police or military.

“I think that we are on the right trajectory for DSA 2018,” he said.

Set to take place from April 16 to 19 next year, DSA 2018 anticipates over 1,200 companies from 60 countries participating.
