LIMA 2017 CLOSED WITH COMPLIMENTS, WELCOMING LIMA 2019 WITH EXCITEMENT

THE LANGKAWI INTERNATIONAL MARITIME & AEROSPACE EXHIBITION or easily known as LIMA. An exhibition showcasing defense, civil and commercial applications for maritime and aerospace, such as Defense, Commercial and Business Aviation, Shipbuilding and Ship Repairs. 

Choosing Langkawi as the venue for the exhibition is not by chance but because it was most suitable for the objectivity. Maritime would be well shown since it's an island and it would be easier for warships, submarines and others to be anchored in, As for the aerospace, since Langkawi has an airport which is able to received high volume tourist, it was seen as wouldn't be a problem to have this renowned exhibition on Langkawi. 

For years, LIMA has been a good source of income for the people of Langkawi, providing job prospect for many, giving opportunities to locals to be creative in products and services, and every two years once, the Island of Langkawi becomes a busy Island like the Bahamas.

2017 marks the 14th year LIMA is held, and excitement is already in the air for 2019. Establishing since 1991, we see the year grow and with some of us aging together with LIMA.

After several years of experiences organising LIMA from year 1991 until 2017, LIMA 2017 is by far, well organised by EN-Projects (M) Sdn Bhd with the support from Ministry of Defense Malaysia. And having had the chance to witness LIMA 2001 previously, the exhibition these time around deserves a thumbs up for effort. 

Our utmost gratitude and many thanks to MINISTRY OF DEFENSE MALAYSIA and EN-PROJECTS (M) SDN BHD for taking care of the media team, with updated information at real time. Their patience in making sure the Media Team had everything at hand from transportation, to a comfortable Media Centre, and other facilities to enabling news are out fast and on time was commendable.
