Live in Hamburg

A successful anniversary

The 30th edition of SMM was everything we hoped for. After a long period of pandemic restrictions, it offered 2,000 exhibitors from all technology areas in the maritime industry, as well as more than 30,000 visitors from over 100 nations, the opportunity to finally meet in person again in Hamburg. To discuss complex challenges. To present groundbreaking innovations. And last but not least, to network, seek cooperation and forge alliances.

With about 80 speakers at the conferences, more than 160 speakers on the Transition Stages, and 16 start-ups pitching for the new SMM Maritime Start-up Award, the supporting programme has never been so popular. Once again, we’ve seen that it takes joint efforts to drive the maritime transition – and as organisers, we’re grateful to know that SMM continues to be your platform of choice to connect with the industry’s game changers.

Bearing your company’s success in mind, we are pleased to announce that the next SMM will take place from 3 – 6 September 2024. We look forward to seeing you in Hamburg.

 

SMM is a great platform to meet old and new partners and customers from all over the world in just four days. And, by the way, SMM’s claim “Driving the maritime transition” is exactly what MAN Energy Solutions stands for…

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.

The global maritime sector is facing an unprecedented transformation process. Whether it's the decarbonisation of shipping, the digitalisation of the value chain or the support of the energy transition through offshore innovations, smart minds, entrepreneurship and cutting-edge technology are needed to meet the challenges. I am therefore very pleased to join the leading maritime companies for the 30th SMM in Hamburg in September 2022.
