SHOW DESCRIPTION: ASDA 2015 is an international defense exhibition that will showcase and demonstrate cutting edge technologies in the air, sea, and land sectors of defense. The third edition of this show will be a unique platform to establish and strengthen relationships with government departments, businesses and armed forces throughout the Adriatic Sea and Southeastern European regions. The show takes over 5,400sqm of exhibition space and 10,000sqm of demonstration area in the Spaladium Arena. The event space is held under the patronage of the Ministry of Defense of the government of Croatia which underscores why there is no better place to meet the individuals who are involved in Croatian military acquisition decisions. ASDA 2015 will be the perfect gateway for manufacturers and suppliers to foster new interest in their products within this region that is looking to modernize its armed forces. An additional benefit of participating in this event is the appeal of the Dalmatian Coast and city of Split which helps to attract top level, visiting military delegations. The exhibition will bring together the defense industry, enabling exhibitors to showcase the tri-service defense technology amongst influential decision makers. Textiles are a major component of ASDA 2015, which will showcase everything from clothing to shelters.

VISITORS/EXHIBITORS: In 2013, ASDA hosted over 3,300 attendees and attracted trade and industry visitors from 38 countries. ASDA visitors include high-ranking officials from Defense Ministries and Departments, as well as Armies, Navies, and Air Forces of countries worldwide. Defense industry professionals, Chiefs of Police, Coast Guard branches and private security firms throughout the region are also targeted visitors. In 2013, Spaladium Arena hosted 106 exhibitors and over 25 Embassy/Military attaché’s visits.

AMENITIES: OTEXA maintains a sample booth at ASDA 2015 for up to 12 qualified U.S. manufacturers and suppliers of military/defense, industrial, and specialty technical textiles. Participants in this catalog/sample show will receive a package of services, including the collection of leads that will be sent to each company in a spreadsheet after the show, promotion of samples and pre-concurrent and post show publicity.

COST: $950 for 4-5 samples not to exceed 10 yards or four book samples, company literature and business cards. Shipment of samples to and from ASDA 2015 is the responsibility of the participant.

WHY SHOULD YOU EXHIBIT? OTEXA has not been represented at tradeshows in the Southeastern European region prior to this year’s show. Now, more than ever is the time to respond to the increasing demand in this marketplace. This expanding market is looking to streamline the enhancement of their armed forces through opportunities such as ASDA 2015. Now in its third edition, ASDA continues to attract a growing wealth of international decision-makers from within the defense industry, alongside key representatives from governments, armed forces and the key military personnel.
