HONG KONG, 22 August 2019 - The 40th anniversary celebration of Marintec China will be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre from 3-6 December promises to be another great edition providing a hub for both exhibitors and visitors with valuable experiences to exchange knowledge, to explore and optimise business opportunities.
Marintec China made its debut at the beginning of the China Reform and Opening-up and is held once every two years in Shanghai in an odd-numbered year. To date, 19 consecutive editions of Marintec China have been organized with huge success. It has been growing steadily over the past 40 years. Marintec China is participating in and witnessing the changes of China shipbuilding industry. Act as a bridge between Chinese and international maritime sector, Marintec China plays a pro-active role in advancing Chinese and foreign exchanges and cooperation in marine technology, economic and trade cooperation, ship financing, safety and insurance, rules and regulations, environmental protection and other areas.
After 40-years’ development, Marintec China has become one of the largest and influential exhibitions in the world.
As the growth of global shipping trade slowed down this year, the international shipbuilding market could not be optimistic. New ships delivered in the first half year decreased by more than 50% compared with that of last year. Benefiting from the new rules and new technologies as well as positive stimulation of market adjustment, marine market industrial integration and Asia-Pacific market development, Marintec China 2019 has achieved a positive growth. More than 2,100 exhibitors and over 65,000 professional visitors are to be expected. The exhibition area will exceed 90,000 square meters. We have confidence that the scale of Marintec China will be bigger than the last edition.
As at 31 July, 15 national/regional pavilions had been confirmed to attend. They are Austria, China, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong SAR, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Sweden, Taiwan Region, UK and USA (by alphabetical order)
In this edition, the highlights of Marintec China will have smart shipping, luxury cruise ships, gas carriers and green products.
The Senior Maritime Forum held concurrently with the Exhibition will have the theme of “Innovation, Intelligence and Fusion”. The forum will be held in Kerry Hotel Pudong on December 2-5. They are “Keynote Address”, “Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering”, “Shipping & Ports”, “Marine Finance and Law” and “Marine Equipment Technology” as well as “Cruise Interiors”. Among those sessions, “Shipping & Ports” will focus on smart shipping. We have invited most of the smart shipping stakeholders such as ship owners, harbor authorities, logistics providers, shipbuilders, system and platform designers, data analysis companies, rules and regulations producers and international organizations to have in-depth discussions on the current situation, bottlenecks and future development. For the “Marine Equipment Technology” session will focus on the application of intelligent technologies, cross-border technologies and etc. In sum, "intelligence" is the key word that link up the entire forum.
“Smart Ship” had a brilliant debut at Marintec China 2017. The "intelligence" has penetrated into all the maritime fields over the past two years. In this edition, it evolves from concept to products such as the demonstrations of related devices, systems and platforms. From our existing exhibitor news, one of the hot product highlights is the 5G application in marine industry.
The construction and interior of cruise ships is another focal point in Marintec China 2019. For the Cruise Interiors, we have a dedicated exhibition zone named “Marintec Interiors” in Hall N4, featuring “The Deck”, “The Reception”, “Cabin and Suite”, “Bar and Restaurant”, “The Theatre” and “Recreation and Relaxation”. In “Marintec Interiors”, we have invited major design and construction parties, contractors and subcontractors, classification societies, supporting enterprises. Many open seminars focusing on the cruise shipbuilding market in Asia as well as daily happy hours for industry professional networking.
Meanwhile, "Cruise Interiors" session is in the Senior Maritime Forum. Renowned international experts will be invited to share their view from the different aspects of aesthetic design, project management, construction technology, safety specifications and etc.
Besides, LNG fuel system, ballast water treatment system, desulfurization device and other environmental products will be highlighted.
