Asia’s shipbuilding & marine, workboat and offshore exhibition and conference, Asia Pacific Maritime (APM), was officially launched this morning by Dr Lam Pin Min, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Transport & Ministry of Health, Singapore.

Taking place from 14 to 16 March, the biennial event comes at a time when the industry is cautiously optimistic, supported by signs of recovery across maritime sectors and positive macroeconomic development.

In conjunction with its 15th edition, APM has injected new elements at the exhibition and conference to ensure that maritime businesses are well-equipped to take advantage of the anticipated upswing.

Newly introduced initiatives include the APM Leaders’ Forum, that will touch on issues that shape the industry, the impact of digitalisation and gender diversity in the maritime world, Thematic Networking Events, Career & Skills Pavilion, and APM Recommendation Tool.

“Asia remains one of the fast-growing regions in the world, which bodes well for the maritime industry’s long-term prospects. For over three decades, APM has rode through multiple cycles with industry players. This year, as maritime businesses look forward to an upward cycle supported by positive indicators in the industry and global economy, APM presents a comprehensive exhibition showcase and conference programme to position delegates well for the changing tide,” Yeow Hui Leng, Group Project Director, Reed Exhibitions, said.

The exhibition features strong international representation with 18 official pavilions, 8 of which are from Asia and Oceania and 10 from the Mediterranean and Europe. These official pavilions alone, bring together over 380 companies from around the world.
