This extremely high number of visitors reflects the broad range on offer at this trade fair. SMM is attended by top shipbuilders, key players in the value chain, operators and service providers. It is a unique opportunity to share ideas and meet with representatives of industry, government, navies and the scientific community.

Thousand of SMM visitors also come to Hamburg to take part in or listen to the comprehensive series of choice supporting events. The SMM theme days encompass the Maritime Future Summit, gmec, MS&D, Offshore Dialogue and the Maritime Career Market.


We have been attending SMM since the very beginning. It is fascinating to see technologies and opportunities unfolding and progressing.
