One of SMM’s defining qualities is its ability to bring together people from the entire spectrum of the maritime business. There is a real buzz every day of the fair. It is a place to inspire and be inspired, coming face-to-face with the individuals, technologies and services that will write the next chapters in the story of how we conduct responsible commercial activity within the ocean environment. We are already looking forward to 2022.
