It’s the time of the year again. The beautiful island of Langkawi, one of the major tourist spots in Malaysia, is again hosting the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition, or more fondly known as LIMA.
The auspicious and grand event, held every two years, the LIMA Langkawi 2019 event will see a total number of over 600 exhibitors from all over the world showcasing their products and services in the Maritime and aerospace industry.
This event, held every two years, will see exhibitors showcasing their latest in maritime and aerospace technology, not only for military but also for commercial use. For LIMA Langkawi 2019, the event will be held on the 26th – 30th March 2019, with its tagline and motto: “Defence and Commercial Connecting Intelligence”.
History of LIMA Langkawi
LIMA began in 1991, at the time with the participation of slightly over 100 exhibiting companies with the aim of making Langkawi the venue for light and experimental aircraft to fly unhampered by heavy traffic, modeled after the EAA Air Venture in the United States. Since then, LIMA has now expanded into maritime exhibitions and is also one of Asia-Pacific’s largest maritime and air exhibitions.
The event is one of the largest maritime and aerospace exhibitions in the Asia-Pacific, and is focused mainly on the defence industry, but also supports civilian industries. In 2013, LIMA recorded an overall growth of 10%, with 433 exhibitors from 31 countries, 333 defence delegations from 38 countries, 632 media personnel from 127 agencies, 68 ships and 78 aircraft attending the show.
The 5 day event also saw 38,421 trade visitors from both defense and commercial sectors from all around the world, as well as 135,691 public visitors.

Moving Around In Langkawi During LIMA Langkawi 2019
As an exhibitor for LIMA Langkawi 2019, you will be most certainly have to move around quite a lot. Your basic requirements for travel should include airport transfer, trips to and from your hotel, as well as the occasional breaks for lunch. You will be in a very hectic schedule and therefore it is very prudent that you have a means of transport that is readily available.
We’ll explore several options on the availability of travel arrangements.
Langkawi has several modes of transport for its visitors. Among the most favourable means of transport would be the use of rental cars. Rental cars are in abundance in Langkawi particularly during big events such as LIMA Langkawi 2019, and the going rate for rental cars are quite cheap.
However, some of the rental cars are operated by individuals who rent their own cars, together with the multitude of companies offering rental services for cars. These individuals are mainly residents or locals living in Langkawi looking for a quick buck in renting their cars, and can offer a rental price which is very cheap.
If you choose to rent a car by this method, you will need to be extra careful. First and foremost, for a proper car rental service, the car is in good condition and by requirement by government law, it must be insured. However, rental cars by individuals may not be in its best condition, and there may be mechanical problems with the cars which you need to contend with.
There is a situation whereby a tourist had a car with a broken fuel gauge, so he has no idea if the car is full of petrol or not. These are some of the risks that a person has to face while getting a rental car by this method.
In addition, especially for first time visitors to Langkawi, there is the added hassle of finding your way around, particularly if you are not familiar with Langkawi roads. This is another snag as you need to move around quite frequently in Langkawi during LIMA Langkawi 2019 particularly if you are an exhibitor and you cannot be bothered with finding your way.
Fortunately there is another solution, exclusively for LIMA Langkawi 2019 exhibitors, Car Rental Langkawi is proud to offer its services that would alleviate the hassles of travel around the island of Langkawi.
