At the previous event and on the last day of LIMA ’11, Minister of Defence for Malaysia, Dato’ Seri Dr Zahid Hamidi announced new dates for LIMA ’13, which now be held from 26th to 30th March 2013. This marks a departure from its traditional fourth quarter dates in early December.
According to HW Exhibitions Managing Director Ahmad Dzuhri, ‘The new dates were selected after years of deliberation and after engaging with key industry players. It is a strategic decision that is a product of market demand and hopefully, the industry would respond positively to it. The first quarter dates also means less preparation time, which Ahmad Dzuhri said will not pose any problem.
LIMA ’11 was attended by 67 countries, with record delegation and trade visitor turnout. The exhibition also boasted the presence of 5 of the leading combat aircraft manufacturers, with the Eurofighter Typhoon, the F-18 Super Hornet, Rafale, Sukhoi and Gripen joining 67 other defence and commercial aircraft showcasing their impressive capabilities. 403 companies participated at LIMA ’11.

If you are into aviation or maritime, this is one of the events that you should not miss. Unless of course you attend the Paris Air Show, this is one of Southeast Asia's premier aerospace event that attracts many countries to participate here in Malaysia. Personally, I attended the last Paris Air Show and it was absolutely amazing, however for this year, I am still unsure if I will visit LIMA13 in Langkawi Island.
