More than 2,000 exhibitors from all over the world
Roughly 40,000 trade visitors, and 90,000 square metres of exhibition space – impressive numbers that speak for themselve
With the last event, SMM again confirmed its position as the most important event in the maritime industry calendar.
The extremely high number of visitors in recent years underscores the diversity of the trade fair’s demographic: not only is SMM attended by top shipbuilders, key players in the value chain, operators and service providers, it is a unique chance to rub shoulders with representatives of industry, government, navies and the scientific community.
After the last SMM, exhibitors expressed total satisfaction with the fruitful discussions before, during and after the event, many of which opened the door to promising post-fair business.
SMM is a true reflection of industry trends. With over half of the visitors coming to observe new technology and innovations, exhibitors enjoy measurable success during and after the trade fair. Connections made at the trade fair often result in follow-up equipment and service sales in the millions of euros.
SMM has never been stronger in terms of international participation, business visitor profiles and government and naval organisation involvement.
If setting or witnessing trends is important to you, you’re in excellent company at SMM.
New technologies. New themes.
