Seawork 2014 sails ahead

30 April, 2014
A few weeks before Seawork 2014 – to be held from 10 to 12 June at ABP Port of Southampton – the organiser of the on-the-water commercial marine exhibition, Mercator Media, reports that it is experiencing a surge of sales to exhibitors. Now in its 17th year, demand for sites in the halls, on the Quayside and on the pontoons has outstripped all previous years. At the end of March, the Seawork sales team reported that, of the 60 berths, only four finger berths remained available and, of 250m of Quayside, a mere 30m remained unsold. It is a similar story in the three exhibition halls. Andrew Webster, CEO of Mercator Media, commented: “Despite demand leading us to expand the exhibition by 15 per cent into Hall C and along the Quayside for 2014, sales of sites are being confirmed at a rate that leaves no doubt this year’s Seawork will be bigger than ever – and the diversity that represents will deliver yet more visitors. Commercial marine professionals know that Seawork is the place to find out how to make their business operate quicker, slicker and more profitably.” All five continents represented Among the expected catalogue of 600 exhibitors, the representation from overseas is already good with all five continents represented and a particularly strong showing from European maritime countries, including the Netherlands (13 exhibitors) and Scandinavia (12). The layout of the exhibition, which includes special interest Pavilions for diving, maritime security and renewable energy, has proved popular with exhibitors and visitors, with the Ship Building and Ship Repair Pavilion enjoying a spate of enquiries in the first quarter of the year. The Small Business Enterprise Zone, which extends to over 100 stands, is also proving popular, as it offers a cost-effective entry point to the commercial marine industry for start-ups and SME’s with all the benefits of an internationally recognised, targeted exhibition. www.seawork.com
