Offshore Patrol Vessels Middle East Conference

  • 2 June, 2015 - 4 June, 2015, Alexandria, Egypt

Enhancing Security in the Middle East, Overcoming Operational Challenges for Navies and Coast Guards, and Focusing on the Future Roles of Egyptian Maritime Security Forces

After three enormously successful editions of OPV Middle East, hosted in the UAE, we are proud to move this conference to one of the Middle East’s true power houses in military capability; a region which has spent, and plans to spend, significantly to enhance maritime security and a region which faces particularly unique challenges with the emerging threats of Daesh, offshore critical infrastructure protection, smuggling and maritime trade.

With the blessing of the Egyptian Navy, We are proud to move this truly regional event, which consistently attracts the leading decision makers in navies and coast guards throughout Africa and the Middle East, to Alexandria. Once again, the leading regional navy commanders will congregate to discuss future requirements, explore new business contacts and technology providers and debate the most effective solutions to the fast changing maritime security challenges happening in the region.
