Marintec China 2013, organised by UBM Asia and the Shanghai Society of Naval Architects and Ocean Engineers, was a tremendous success over the four days of the show.
The four-day exhibition and conference was unveiled and officiated by senior officials from the industry, namely Mr Su Bo, Vice Minister of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Mr Zhou Bo, Vice Mayor of Shanghai Municipal People’s Government, Mr Song Jiahui, Safety Director of the Ministry of Transport, Mr Jime Essink, President and Chief Executive Officer of UBM Asia, Mr Andreas Nordseth, Director General of Danish Maritime Authority, Mr Zhang Guangqin, President of the China Association of the National Shipbuilding Industry, Mr Huang Pingtao, Chairman of the Chinese Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, and Dr Martin Stopford, President of Clarksons Research Services.
Occupying six halls of the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, over 1,700 exhibiting companies met 57,886 visitors from 88 countries and regions, a stable 13% increase compared to the last edition in 2011. This shows that Marintec China is the exhibition to attend.
Once again, Marintec China has proven to be the definitive maritime trade show in Asia. International exhibitors have seen that this is the most effective gateway for entering the Asian maritime industry.
Already, there is a high response rate as exhibitors submitted their re-booking forms for Marintec China 2015, which will be held on 1-4 December 2015 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
