Goa, India and Waldwick, N.J. / March 22, 2016 . When DefExpo 2016 opens in Goa on March 28, the United States will be among the event’s largest international exhibitors. With more than 40 exhibitors, the size of the American contingent is a strong indicator of how important the region is to the U.S. defense and security business, and that India and its allies are likewise interested in working with U.S. companies to further their defense, security and economic goals.

DefExpo is India’s most prominent defense and security trade event. The U.S. presence, featuring industry leading companies such asBoeing (Booth #3.1.1-D), GE (Booth #3.2.1-F), Honeywell (Booth #3.2.1-A), Lockheed Martin (Booth #3.1.1-E), Raytheon (Booth #3.2.1-E)and Textron (Booth #3.2.2-D) is organized by Kallman Worldwide, Inc., the designated U.S. Representative of the show, in coordination with numerous U.S. government agencies.

The centerpiece of the national effort, the nearly 1,500 sqm (gross) U.S. International Pavilion, is a destination for buyers looking for an efficient way to meet a critical mass of U.S. suppliers, and an on-site business hub for U.S. exhibitors looking to maximize their exposure and impact at the event.

There are 29 exhibitors in the Pavilion, ranging from publicly-traded stalwarts to privately-held small-and-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Pavilion exhibitors represent a cross-section of leading American suppliers working to strengthen or initiate international partnerships.

“When U.S. companies commit to exhibit at DefExpo, they’re saying they believe in the power of this event to attract real business prospects and customers. The global interest in this show speaks for itself,” said Kallman Worldwide President and CEO, Tom Kallman. “Our team is proud to help our exhibitors capitalize on this influential international business opportunity to grow their share of the marketplace and our nation’s trade and investment partnerships in the region.”
