The last couple of months have been busy for Subsea Industries and Hydrex with both of the companies’ coatings and hull care teams attending key maritime events across the globe as part of their aim to optimize their market share in the marine sector.
Kick-starting the Fall 2019 exhibition and conference schedule was a visit to the NEVA event in St. Petersburg. This biennial event has grown exponentially over recent years with the 15th edition welcoming over 600 participating organizations from 32 countries.
The organizers called the event a resounding success. The said that “both International and Russian organisations alike answered the call of opportunity from NEVA 2019. Record numbers of professionals and visitors attended the Exhibition and Conference Programme to enjoy a direct networking connection to Russian maritime industry buyers who actively sought best-of-breed internationally-sourced products and services to fulfil their projects and active redevelopment requirements.”
“For us, the event was also very fruitful,” said Subsea Industries Production Executive Manuel Hof. “We had many networking opportunities throughout the exhibition and the booth of Nordweg JSC, our agent for Russia, was bustling with activity from start to finish.”
NEVA 2019 was followed in quick succession by Europort, one of Europe’s foremost maritime exhibitions.
The 39th Europort exhibition for maritime technology in Rotterdam was attended by 26.000 trade visitors from 93 countries. The many exhibitors, including Subsea Industries and Hydrex were very satisfied with the event.
According to the exhibition’s post-event press release, special ship markets in recovery and real progress on maritime digitalisation brought a feelgood finale to Europort 2019. With over 1,000 exhibitors and a record number of international visitors, Europort’s focus on special ship markets paid particular dividends in 2019, as its successful recipe of conference sessions, Masterclasses, networking events and exihibitor showcases came seasoned with a sprinkle of market opportunity and business wins.
Innovation and expansion
With a wide variety of products and techniques on display, the Subsea Industries/Hydrex booth fitted in perfectly with the innovative aspect of Europort. As part of the Dutch pavilion it was a popular spot for visitors.
Many existing customers, Subsea Industries agents, technical people from all phases of shipbuilding and maintenance and many interested newcomers to Subsea Industries and Hydrex dropped by and enjoyed the friendly, comfortable but businesslike and informative atmosphere. Much new business was conducted.
Europort 2019 was a great success for us and we would like to thank all of you who visited us there. We look forward to working with you on an ongoing basis.
