Welcome to SMM DIGITAL


With a powerful digital platform we turn the world’s largest meeting place for the maritime industry into a lasting global industry marketplace. SMM DIGITAL – the maritime business hub will kick-of from 2 – 5 February 2021 and remain online for one and a half years until next SMM in September 2022.

This is the place to be in a time when travel and contact restrictions call for new solutions to bring our community together. It gives companies a state-of-the-art exposure to a global audience, and takes business initiation or even recruiting to a whole new level. In addition to getting a worldwide overview of the industry and attending the accompanying conferences, it also enables all registered participants to expand their personal business network – never before has it been so easy to connect with a potential of about 50,000 players of our industry.


Seize the opportunities of the world’s #1

SMM DIGITAL is built to become our industry’s most comprehensive, informative and effective tool for business. It makes it easy for every company to integrate existing online content, put employees from various departments in place to respond to online enquiries, and interact with potential buyers and experts from around the world.

To all companies that want to participate, we are offering four attractive participant packages that suit every need and budget. Besides the packages, we offer various options to individually enhance a company’s presence on the platform.

Matchmaking – your smart networking tool

As Covid19 puts live events on hold, we very much look forward to participating in SMM DIGITAL. A maritime phenomenon not to be missed, I’m sure the virtual experience will also surpass expectations to reach die-hard and new audiences like never before. See you in February 2021!
