Hyundai Heavy Industries Shipbuilding Division Joins Marintec China 2015

Industry Leader Confirms Participation in the Largest Maritime International Trade Fair in Asia

HONG KONG, Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Marintec China 2015, The All China Maritime Conference and Exhibition, will once again present the maritime industry’s largest international trade fair in Asia. 

Organised by UBM Asia, the largest commercial trade fair organiser in Mainland China, and the Shanghai Society of Naval Architects and Ocean Engineers (SSNAOE), this biennial exhibition and conference projects a strong showing vis-a-vis high re-booking rate of industry leaders and recent favourable news of cooperation and expansion of partnerships from China’s government to other nations. Marintec China 2015 takes place 1-4 December 2015 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) in Shanghai, China.

Hyundai Heavy Industries – Shipbuilding Division, one of the world’s largest shipbuilders with a 15% share of the market, confirms their participation at Marintec China 2015, with expectations of showcasing the innovative projects which makes them a global shipbuilding leader in categories such as Shipbuilding, Offshore & Engineering, and Green Energy.

China’s shipbuilding industry is booming. From Chinese leader’s official visit to Greece to significantly advance business deals, the two countries signed more than 20 government and commercial agreements worth approximately USD 5 billion covering a range of sectors including logistics, energy, shipping and property. Moreover, opportunities have further opened between Russia and China on several large-scale infrastructure projects, including cooperation in shipbuilding. According to public industrial data in 2013, China’s ocean engineering orders reached a total value of USD 18 billion, 29.5 percent of the global market, an increase of 16 percent year-on-year.   

UBM, co-organiser of Marintec China and other events serving the cruise and general maritime industries worldwide also recently announced its acquisition of Seatrade Communications Ltd. —  a long-time partner of Marintec China. The acquisition is expected to foster further promotional, partnership related, and international synergistic effects for Marintec China 2015.

"We are both honoured and excited to have Hyundai Heavy Industries – Shipbuilding Division participate at Marintec China 2015," said Ms Stella Fung, Event Director for Marintec China.  "The fair has always served as a global business and meeting platform for the industry, but with Hyundai Heavy Industries Shipbuilding Division’s participation as well as several other industry giants coming on board, the recent Seatrade Communications Ltd. acquisition, and China’s projected growth and increase international cooperation, Marintec China 2015 is expected to serve even higher levels of importance."

Marintec China 2013 attracted more than 57,886 visitors from 88 countries and regions — marking a solid increase of 13 percent over the previous event.
