Cruise Shipping Asia-Pacific Offers Exhibitors Entry into the Staggering Growth in Ship Refurbishment and Repair Sector

June 26, 2013 MICE No Comments Email Email

The third annual Cruise Shipping Asia-Pacific conference and trade show, presented by UBM Live, the organizers of the annual Cruise Shipping Miami event, will be held on Oct. 8-10, 2013 in Singapore.

As cruise lines continue making Asia and Australia the home port for more and more of their ships, the growth opportunity for Australasia-based suppliers in the ship repair, refurbishment and design sectors will be exploding. Cruise Shipping Asia-Pacific is leveraging this opportunity and encouraging regional suppliers to capitalize on this boom by exhibiting at Cruise Shipping Asia-Pacific, and getting in front of the key stakeholders who manage these projects.  “For our third annual show, we’ve partnered with Seatrade in order to offer exhibitors and attendees the most robust and valuable program in the industry,” said Daniel Read, Portfolio Director for UBM Live.  “As the only show focused on the entire Asia-Pacific region, we are expecting quite an enormous turnout this year.”

Some of the largest shipyards and designers have already signed on to participate at the upcoming conference and tradeshow.  Leading the charge is Asia’s premier shipyard for cruise ship vessel repair, refurbishment and revitalization — Sembawang Shipyard.

Other related industries benefiting from the increase in the number of home ported ships include safety and security, ship services and port infrastructure. Related exhibitors include Aerobytes who provide proven world class systems that monitor the operations of the entire vessel maximizing overall safety, security and efficiencies.  Also returning in 2013 will be Latitude 1 Maritime who provides services for cruise line projects at shipyards locally in Asia and around the world. Primary areas of focus include: steel work, pipe fitting, electrical installations, IT networks and surveillance systems.
