I’ve been here 3 times and of course it’s a long distance to travel from the UK to Singapore, so it shows that we feel that it’s worthwhile coming to IMDEX Asia. The show is very well organised and very well run. We’ve been very pleased with the show this year and are amazed at the number of additional warships that have come along to celebrate the Republic of Singapore Navy’s 50th anniversary.
