Long established as the only international conference and trade-show dedicated to senior-level technologists in maritime defence and security, MAST promotes debate amongst experts from surface, undersea, and air & space domains, giving new perspectives on developments to meet future capabilities.

MAST boasts an unmatched, diverse global profile of participants, and – over three days of discussion, discovery and debate – delivers “real solutions to real-world problems” (Richard Scott, Jane’s Naval Consultant)

Impressive line-ups of keynote speakers deliver ‘views from the top’, setting the themes for “MAST week”. Plenary speakers offer debate on another key topical/regional issues. Within the framework this creates, parallel technical sessions are populated with speakers with world-leading credentials in their specialist fields (many appear at other conferences as their keynote speakers!).




MAST’s unique bespoke service to its VIPs/Exhibitors leverages the influence of its Executive Advisers Board and Conference Committee to arrange one-to-one meetings and delegation visits during the trade-show open hours.

Exhibitors meet chiefs of navy, programme/procurement directors, government ministers and other influential VIPs and discuss their offerings, and VIPs can discover state-of-the-art platforms and systems to meet their future operational requirements.

MAST’s bespoke VIPs/Hosted buyers programme – with full support of Lieutenant General RNLMC Rob Verkerk, Commander of Royal Netherlands Navy – will invite guests from:

  • NATO/Europe – Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, UK, USA
  • Other Europe – Sweden
  • Asia/Pacific – Australia, India, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam
  • and Gulf States – Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE



Ship Visits

Wherever possible, MAST visitors can take part in guided tours of visiting units, and see live demonstrations of exhibitors’ platforms, systems and technologies: Visit MAST and you will see technologies in their rightful environments: platforms and installations that help deliver security throughout the world’s seas and harbours.



Ship visits demonstrate exhibitor’s offerings in ‘real-work’ scenarios, on board state-of-the-art units from invited naval units. We are delighted that MAST Europe 2016 will host tours of:
