The SMM in Hamburg is the world’s leading trade fair for the maritime industry. It takes place every 2 years in Hamburg, because due to its long maritime tradition as a dynamic trading center, Hamburg offers the ideal location for the SMM. It is the trade fair for shipbuilding, machinery and marine technology with the greatest international character. Visitors and exhibitors from all over the world represent the current state of the ship and shipyard industry worldwide and can display current products, innovations, trends and services here or obtain comprehensive information about them. No other exhibition has a comparably broad spectrum of international exhibitors and visitors and thus determines the chances of success for the industry. However, the SMM is more than just a trade fair. With a comprehensive program consisting of conferences, symposia and workshops held by internationally recognized speakers on important global topics, it forms the perfect framework for the entire maritime industry.
The organizers welcomed a total of around 2289 exhibitors from 69 countries and 50,000 visitors from 120 countries at the SMM in Hamburg on the 4 days of the fair, from 04 September to 07 September 2018.
