Maritime World Joins Together at Asia Pacific Maritime 2001
With an expanded profile and vast interest from the marine industry, this year's Asia Pacific Maritime is scheduled to be the largest ever since its commencement in 1990.
The exhibition, which will be held from September 5-7, 2001 and organized by PSA Exhibitions and Reed Exhibition Companies, is expected to draw key industry members from more than 500 companies worldwide. International participation is from 12 country groups — including Belgium, China, Denmark, France and Norway.
With Germany holding the designation as this year's "Feature Country," the exhibition will showcase the latest technologies and services in shipping, ports, marine, communication and navigation systems, offshore technology, shipbuilding, and ship repair and conversion.
Awarded this distinction for outstanding contribution to the international maritime industry and advancement in marine technology, the German Marine and Offshore Equipment Industries Association (VDMA) will be leading the German contingent of approximately 20 companies in a series of promotional activities leading to and during the event.
Another added feature is that exhibitors and pre-registered visitors can secure business meetings prior to the event via APM Contact, a free, online appointment scheduling system.
Through Asia Pacific Maritime's web site www.apmaritime.com, Contact serves an online matchmaker, bringing together visitors and exhibitors with similar business interests.
The exhibition will also boast myriad of pavilions including a Technology Transfer Pavilion, which will showcase a wide range of maritime products, services, technical know-how and financing options available to developing countries. A specialist clinic staffed by lawyers, insurers and bankers will offer consultation to visitors on how they can access these technologies and advise on implementing these capabilities.
The International Maritime and Port Authorities Pavilion will feature regulatory bodies in the maritime industry, which will provide updates on their plans for the development of ports, policies and services. In addition, a Maritime and E-Commerce Pavilion will hold major hardware and software providers showcasing technologically driven products and services for the industry.
Conferences and seminars will be an added bonus to this year's exhibition.
Renowned speakers and participants will discuss directives and technical innovations facing the global maritime world today. Zeroing in on themes, "Technical Innovations for the Future," and "Is Bigger Better," each discussion presents an insightful argument on real issues and practical solutions providing unique opportunities to participate in discussions.
