The Maritime LNG Platform partners with the SMM – the leading international maritime trade fair

The SMM, taking place from 6th to 9th September 2016 in Hamburg, will add a new exhibition hall to showcase an entirely new offering focusing on “Systems and components for alternative fuels and alternative propulsion, port technology and security”. Therefore, the SMM will be able not only to highlight a new thematic focal point and but also position itself again as a key technology leader in the market of maritime exhibitions. The German Maritime LNG Platform is delighted to support the SMM with its new endeavour.

It is important to both organisations to bring together the right stakeholders. The market conditions for the use of LNG in the maritime sector have improved so the time has come to move forward and generate business. The SMM provides an ideal opportunity to do just that.

This new exhibition hall is centred on LNG and, as a result, it is a custom-made stage for the Maritime LNG Platform. It is also the right environment to present relevant expertise, business opportunities, and services related to the use of LNG. Additional sustainable propulsion technologies will complete the offering, including methanol, fuel cell, hybrid and dual fuel technologies. Exhibitors will be able to meet and network with relevant decision-makers from all over the world, e.g. from shipping companies, port authorities, shipping yards, as well as other key leaders from business and politics.

In total, 50,000 visitors from 108 countries are expected to visit the SMM in 2016.
