Return of China Maritime promises to be bigger and better
Next March, Baird Events will be
presenting the third instalment of the
ever-popular China Maritime.
Returning once again to cosmopolitan
Hong Kong, China Maritime 2010 will
offer a programme full of innovative
forums and seminars that will be a source
of invaluable information for all those in
the maritime industry.
China Maritime 2010 will be held from
Tuesday, March 16 to Thursday, March 18
at the prominent Hong Kong Convention
and Exhibition Centre.
Hong Kong is one of the world's
leading maritime centres, and as Asia's
number one cargo and container hub, is
the perfect backdrop for a maritime
exhibition, allowing visitors and
exhibitors to form new alliances or renew
With the onset of the global financial
crisis, the shipbuilding industry faced
Now, nearly a year since the effects of the
downturn began reverberating around the
world, China Maritime promises to present
conferences that are relevant to the current
state of the market and its uncertainties.
While it may seem that the financial
crisis may have brought an abrupt end to
the shipping boom, there are still many
opportunities to be sought. More than
3,000 top quality visitors from over 40
nations are expected at next year's show.
China Maritime 2010 will offer visitors
a diverse programme so representatives of
both the shipping and work boat sectors
will find the event extremely relevant,
useful and informational.
China Maritime 2010's Asian Shipping
Summit will navigate aspects of the
shaken industry: from funding and
financial issues; to the recycling of excess
vessels; to the push towards ever-more
environmentally sustainable options for
fuelling and shaping ships. These summit
sessions will take place on the mornings
of March 16 and March 17.
Featuring the Chief Executives of some
of the world's most prominent shipping
companies, these sessions will tap into
their expertise and insight.
Meanwhile, representatives of the work
boat sector will greatly benefit from China
Maritime's Ferry Futures Forum. This paid
event will take place on March 17 and
March 18 and will be a discerning
conference on the future of the ferry market
featuring the rise of low-wake fast ferries
and low-resistance and low-wash ferries.
Furthermore, the Forum will probe
suggestions of economical inland waterway
ferries for the Asian continent and discuss
exciting emerging opportunities in the
Taiwan Strait. The Forum will also discuss
the possibility of using ferries as substitutes
for congested road traffic and the
maintenance and usage of traditional ferries.
The invaluable China Maritime 2010
promises to be bigger and better than ever
before. Many top quality exhibitors will
once again exhibit at Baird Events'
ever-evolving world-class show while new
exhibitors are encouraged to grow their
networks of industry contacts by taking
part in China Maritime 2010.
