4 Paul Osakeng Thobega Managing Director at Red Eclipse ( Pty ) Ltd Edition Attended : Sep, 2018

The event was well organised except at the checking in where there seemed to be some confusion with regards to the international delegates/visitors however that was cleared. Maybe the assistant was not well trained or something. Attended on 20/09/2018morning and my expectations was met as the event itself proved to be a great networking platform

4 Paul Bodigelo Project Manager at SANDF Edition Attended : Sep, 2018

Its the Fourth Event that I attended. My interest is mostly on Land Systems, unfortunately nothing new from what I seen before. The new arrival Sudan etc, could not present products due to language barrier, they relied on translators. Thank You.

3 Thys Soldier at Suiderkruis Edition Attended : Sep, 2018

I noticed that there were less exhibitors than with previous shows. Rather fill less Hangers completely than having a few half filled hangers. May there can be one or two food stalls active close to the airstrip during the trade days as well.

4 Sibusiso Nkosi Manager at Transnet Freight Rail Edition Attended : Sep, 2018

Found it very informative. Did not not see the "sea" portion of the expo though. Saw the aircraft and the land-based war machinery, but no sea-based equipment, not even pictures.
