Seatrade expands Singapore office

Singapore: Global maritime publisher and events organiser Seatrade announced the expansion of its Asia Representative office in Singapore today, in response to the increasing significance of the city as the hub in the world's maritime arena.

"Seatrade is fully committed to the further development of its products throughout Asia," said Andrew Callaghan (pictured right), Seatrade's global sales director. "Singapore is our preferred choice for regional headquarters and we look forward to playing our part in the continued growth of Singapore's increasing global maritime status."

The office, located at  7500A Beach Road, will be helmed initially by Callaghan and Toby Ingram, Seatrade head of marketing & communications for Asia & Middle East. Also joining them on a shared basis is Winnie Low, director of the Overseas Media Representation (OMR) and Seatrade office manager, Jennifer Khoo.    

The move was welcomed by the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF), whose executive director David Chin said that the SMF "was pleased to welcome Seatrade's extended presence into the Singapore maritime community. The inaugural collaboration between Seatrade and the SMF, to develop and stage SEA ASIA 2007, was an overwhelming success. With Seatrade's presence this will create more synergy for us to work together to make SEA ASIA 2009, and subsequent shows, the iconic maritime event in Singapore. SEA ASIA will continue to manifest and reinforce Singapore's position as an International Maritime Centre."

SEA ASIA, the iconic new maritime event for the region, based in Singapore, returns 21-23 April 2009 after a spectacular inaugural show, with more than 7,000 participants, in April this year.  [14/09/07]
