Welcome to Asian Defence & Security (ADAS) 2016, the second Defence, Security and Crisis Management Exhibition and Conference in the Series to be held in Manila serving the Philippines and the Asia Pacific region.

With the very successful launch of the inaugural Show in July 2014, the second Event in the Series will be held in September 2016.

The developing political scenario in the South China Sea continues to be of major concern to the Region, in particular ASEAN. As a result, the Philippines have embarked on a major upgrading and modernisation of its Armed Forces (AFP), with the First Phase having been launched in 2012.

The Department of National Defence (DND) recently announced the Second Phase of the AFP Modernisation Programme code name “The Second Horizon” which will cover the period 2017-2022.

The ADAS Series will continue to enjoy the full support of the Philippine DND and other relevant Agencies has become in its short history, an important International Event to showcase defence and security products in a fast expanding market.

ADAS 2016 will attract international exhibitors from around the world to Manila in 2016. As Organisers we will be working closely with the AFP, the Office of Civil Defence (OCD) and the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) to encourage exhibitors participating in the Show to set up meetings with relevant Senior Personnel in order to fully evaluate requirements regarding their upgrade and modernisation plans.

ADAS 2016 will also focus on the needs and requirements of the Asia Pacific Armed Forces, the Internal State Security Organisations and Crisis & Disaster Management Agencies

We look forward to your full support for ADAS 2016, and Maligayang Pagdating sa Pilipinas.
