Sea Asia 2011 exhibition sales set new record

Sea Asia 2011 exhibition sales set new record

Singapore: Sea Asia, the region's leading conference and exhibition event for the international maritime industry, has set a new record ahead of its 3rd edition, scheduled for 12-14 April 2011 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
 Exhibition bookings at 9 months from the opening of Sea Asia 2011, have topped 2,800 square metres, a 20% increase on the net exhibition space booked for the corresponding period in the run up to the last edition in 2009.

 "We are delighted that our exhibition bookings are significantly higher compared to the 2009 event. This shows that the global and Asian maritime players perceive Sea Asia as a value-added event and that Asia is pivotal to the continued growth of the world's maritime economy," said Andrew Callaghan, Global Sales Director of Seatrade, the event organiser.  
"As we recover from the global financial crisis, and companies look with fresh eyes at marketing opportunities in Asia, we not only see faster re-bookings but also more first-time exhibitors drawn to the show," Mr Callaghan added. 
The biennial show, which Seatrade organises together with the Singapore Maritime Foundation, was launched in 2007. It continues to gather momentum as it approaches the third edition.
Sea Asia 2011 is set to be the largest Sea Asia ever.  It will feature the region's pivotal business voices and will be themed the Asian Voice in World Shipping, to unite maritime leaders. It is guided by an advisory panel of prominent figures in the international shipping industry, including Mr Andreas Sohmen-Pao, CEO of BW Group, Capt Wei Jia Fu, Group President and CEO of COSCO and Mr Rune Bjerke, CEO of DnB NOR ASA.
"With the strong response from the global maritime community, over 12,000 participants would be expected in Singapore during the three-day conference and exhibition.  We are pleased that Sea Asia is growing from strength to strength. The Sea Asia 2011 show would certainly anchor Singapore's position as a leading international maritime centre in this region and project the voice of Asia in an impactful way," said Mr Michael Chia, Chairman of the Singapore Maritime Foundation.
First time exhibitors at Sea Asia 2011 will include Sinotrans, Zhoushan Municipal People's Government, the Shipbuilding Industry Corporation of China Chang Jiang National Shipping Group, Tractors Singapore Limited, Henkel Singapore Pte Ltd, Telaurus Communication Pte Ltd, IMMARBE, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Cyprus Department of Merchant Shipping and Kluber Lubrication SEA Pte Ltd.
