Undersea Defence Technology (UDT), the underwater defence and security community's dedicated exhibition and conference, is delighted to announce that the Netherlands Industries for Defence & Security (NIDV) has become a key partner for the 2015 show, which is taking place at the Ahoy Convention Centre, Rotterdam, Netherlands from the 3 - 5 June 2015.
Rear Admiral Simon Williams, Chairman of Clarion Defence and Security, said, "NIDV is a highly respected and influential organisation with a great depth of knowledge. Having NIDV as a partner will be greatly beneficial to UDT".
This is a significant endorsement for UDT as NIDV is a key player in the underwater defence community. A non profit organisation, NIDV represents the interests of Dutch defence and security industries, acting as a mediator between government, politicians, institutes and industry. Its responsibilities include working with Dutch and overseas companies on issues such as offset commitments.
Marc Soeteman, Manager Business Development Marine & Export support at NIDV says, "UDT 2015 in Rotterdam will be perfectly timed and located both politically and commercially. UDT is the most influential event in the underwater domain and as such is ideal for NIDV to represent the interests of the growing Dutch Underwater sector and Dutch defence and security industries".
