SMM Streams

More information about our streams.

The pandemic has demonstrated that so much can be achieved through digital means and that the maritime industry is more than capable of adapting to new ways of working. During these very challenging times, more than ever before safety must be at the forefront of every decision we make. I am therefore pleased that SMM has shown the foresight and sound judgment to move next year’s SMM onto a digital platform. Although we will not be meeting face-to-face, I am confident that next year’s SMM will stimulate the same high levels of curiosity, debate and information exchange which have come to define this excellent event.

Times are really challenging and we are currently experiencing a time of major restrictions. But at least: SMM will take place, no matter what. Although in a modified concept by a virtual conference. A new but exciting format, certainly also a challenge for all of us. I am happy that via a screen we can meet each other in February 2021.

Klaus Deleroi
Managing Director, REINTJES GmbH

We welcome the digital edition of SMM in February: this will be the place to be for the forward-looking global maritime industry. All of us are eagerly awaiting a strong positive impulse for the market following the pandemic turbulences. We are convinced SMM 2021 will provide this important positive impulse, and we strongly support this leading digital event.

Hauke Schlegel
Managing Director, VDMA Marine Equipment and Systems

As media partner in our longstanding cooperation with Messe Hamburg and of the renowned Maritime Future Summit, we fully support the first digital SMM. We are absolutely convinced that our joint conference will be a great offer to the maritime community. We are looking forward to make use of all new virtual features to provide unique experiences and insights to the audience
