Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA) is a maritime and aerospace exhibition that takes place once every two years at Langkawi Island, Malaysia. This year it took place from March 17th till March 21st. This year’s show had a lot of aerial demonstration teams, with as highlight the Chinese PLAAF 1st August team, Flying the J-10 A/B. In total about 80 aircraft where on display. The event is one of the largest maritime and aerospace exhibitions in the Asia-Pacific region, and is focused mainly on the defense industry, but also civilian industries. The exhibitors involved in the event exhibit their products inside the purpose built Mahsuri International Exhibition Centre (MIEC), adjacent to the terminal at Langkawi International Airport and on a large ramp adjacent to Langkawi International Airport.

The maritime exhibitions take place at Resort World Langkawi while the aerospace exhibitions take place at the Langkawi International Airport. The venues are all in close proximity to each other so visitors can visit both venues on the same day.

The whole event is supported by the government (Armed Forces) and industry associations. Next LIMA will be held in March 2017.
