China’s leading shipbuilding province, Jiangsu, today announced it is bringing a 30-strong exhibitor pavilion to Seatrade Maritime Middle East Virtual.
In 2019, the Jiangsu Province, located on the east coast of China, announced its ship exports reached 6.66 billion dollars, which was 32% of national total. With the largest shipbuilding city (TAIZHOU) and the 2nd largest ship and marine base (NANTONG) in China, Jiangsu has perfect supply chain and has strong synergies with ship manufacturing and related industries.
Exhibitors from Jiangsu at Seatrade Maritime Middle East will represent ship, marine and port equipment, engine and propulsion, technology, ship designers and builders, as well as safety and security.
Chris Morley, Event Director, Seatrade Maritime, commented: “The fact that so many exhibitors from this Province are attending the event shows how interested they are in the relationships they can build with the Middle East. We hope that that their participation will lead to some interesting discussions with potential buyers and fruitful, long-term business opportunities.”
Seatrade Maritime Middle East Virtual 2020 takes place from 14 – 16 December completely online. During the event dates, attendees and exhibitors will be able to log in to the online event platform through individual log-in credentials and make use of the networking, meeting and matchmaking features. Visitors can unite with thousands of maritime professionals for an exclusively online experience designed to foster innovation, spark thought-provoking conversations and strengthen networks across maritime in the Middle East.
Hoping to make the most of the virtual platform, Li. Xiaodon, Director of International Trade Promotion Center of Jiangsu Province, said: “We are pleased to continue this tradition of promoting the interaction and cooperation between Chinese and foreign companies. Jiangsu hopes to strengthen cooperation with enterprises from all around the world.”
To meet with Jiangsu Province exhibitors, Seatrade has appointed a dedicated relationship manager who will help coordinate the meetings on the virtual platform.
