Stay Smart About Africa

2nd International Maritime Defense Exhibition and Conference

The 2nd International Maritime Defense Exhibition and Conference (IMDEC) taking place from 6 – 8 July 2021 in Accra, Ghana, will celebrate Ghana’s 62 years of Naval excellence. This event will feature the largest gathering of Africa’s maritime industry, as we host regional and international Chiefs of Naval Staff as well as related stakeholders.

IMDEC will also feature a notable two-day conference and exhibition in which the gathered Navies and other maritime stakeholders can deliberate the increasingly volatile maritime threats facing our territorial waters. This edition will also welcome greater participation from regional Air Forces, as the Ghana Air Force will be an official event partner to highlight the significance of air-maritime cooperation.

In-depth panel discussions, breakout sessions and extensive site visits to our naval and air bases will further highlight this celebration as the premier strategic gathering of Africa’s Navies, Air Forces, Coast Guards, Port and Coastal Authorities, Marine Police and related Ministries.
