Indo-Pacific Maritime Security Exchange


A free and open exchange of perspectives, ideas, and professional

assessments concerning maritime security in the Indo-Pacific region.


Regret that because of the uncertainties regarding travel as the result of the COVID19 pandemic we must indefinitely postpone Indo-Pacific Maritime Security Exchange 2020.

IMSE will remain a forum for RIMPAC participants, industry, and interested members of the general public to engage in dialogue about the unique challenges and opportunities to strengthen multi-national maritime operations.  It will, in future iterations, continue to feature senior leaders from the Indo-Pacific region - military, law enforcement, industry, and the diplomatic corps sharing their diverse perspectives and knowledge about collaborative maritime security and to maintain a free and open Indo-Pacific.

We will reschedule when conditions permit.
