4 Sep 2018 Edition Paul Osakeng Thobega Reviewed on 24 Sep 2018 Managing Director at Red Eclipse ( Pty ) Ltd
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

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.

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.

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.
