SMM will be the most important event for the maritime industry again in 2014 – the trend indicator, innovation show and meeting point for the experts.
SMM was created at a time of rapid technological development in shipbuilding, of boom development in ports and container logistics; today it is a platform for experts from the whole of the maritime industry.
SMM also offers valuable opportunities for synergies – the link between the MS&D conference and the Maritime Security and Defence section of SMM fills in the gaps and expands the scope of SMM with new target groups.
SMM is also the trail blazer for green technologies in shipbuilding and the marine equipment industries. gmec (global maritime environmental congress) will be held on the occasion of SMM, providing another attractive component.
SMM is appealing to more and more target groups by further development of its subjects, and by adapting to the increasing globalisation of the world market. More and more trade visitors from related industries are making use of the fair – for example from the automotive industry, the energy industry and environmental engineering.
These interdisciplinary synergy effects bring together the representatives of business, governments and civil society. Make use of this platform to discuss the industry trends and developments that are relevant to you with the widest possible expert audience.
