It has always been important for SCHOTTEL to exhibit at SMM, the international maritime industry meeting place. This is where our customers come, and it offers the opportunity to make new contacts and initiate business deals. We very much value discussions with other experts on the challenges and opportunities in the industry, such as sustainability and digitalization.

The SMM Expo brings together key people in the marine industry and gives us a fantastic opportunity to collaborate with leaders, owners, yards, designers, competitors, suppliers and many more to progress the most important topics close to my heart– including decarbonisation, future fuels and innovative technologies to drive efficiency and sustainability. Every two years an extremely busy SMM puts Hamburg at the centre of the maritime world, we’re looking forward to being there in September 2024.

As the world's leading trade fair for the maritime industry, SMM has been one of the most important events in our trade fair calendar for years.

There is no better place than SMM to meet and discuss with all our partners and customers. Bringing ship owners, shipyards and equipment manufacturers together at one trade fair is unique. Just like the positive atmosphere at SMM, it energises us every day. We expect many new customers at SMM 2024 who are interested in our technology for more sustainable shipping: from automation technology for wind-assisted propulsion to fast and error-free energy management control. At SMM, we would like to discuss how standardisation contributes to greater safety and healthier competition and look forward to receiving feedback on our technology for autonomous driving.

Watch out for untrustworthy exhibitor directory offers

We are currently observing that more and more letters are being sent to our exhibitors from publishers of unofficial exhibitor directories offering entries in these sub-standard online directories. However, the letters hide long-term payment obligations in the small print. Don't be irritated by this and do not reply to these letters.

Further information on this and what you should do if you receive such a registration offer can be found on the AUMA website (Ausstellungs- und Messe-Ausschuss der Deutschen Wirtschaft e. V.).

Exhibitors watch out! Scammers offer visitor lists

We are currently observing that more and more emails are being sent to our exhibitors from fake accounts offering to buy visitor lists for the trade fairs we organize. Some of the emails use our protected trademarks. Do not be irritated by this and do not reply to these emails.

We do not offer visitor lists for sale and do not send any such emails. If you receive such an email, please forward it to us. We will send a warning letter to the sender.
