Business buzz at Seawork 2017
The atmosphere was once again vibrant on day two of Seawork 2017
The second day at Seawork 2017 saw a real buzz amongst the stands and pontoons, with Andrew Mallard, General Manager of MAN adding ‘Seawork gives us a good opportunity to network and, unlike other exhibitions, you feel as if business is being done. You feel like you’re really achieving something'
Andrew further commented 'We’ve been at Seawork since its infancy and in the past five years it’s gone from strength to strength.'
This year’s Seawork welcomed a record number of launches and announcements including Landau UK, who chose Seawork 2017 to launch into the UK the Seabob Rescue. With the ability to carry 10 people and submerge up to 40 metres the new Seabob Rescue is a cutting-edge product designed to save lives and rescue people where every second counts.
Commenting on their nine-year involvement with Seawork, Ben explained: ‘Seawork is the perfect platform to launch any commercial product. We visit around 14 or 15 shows but Seawork offers the strongest networking opportunities.”
Further networking events took place thanks for SSA, who held their annual cocktail Networking Drinks reception yesterday. Over the past few years this event has become increasingly popular with Seawork delegates, seeing hundreds of maritime delegates in attendance.
Once again, Seawork International also held its popular ‘Meet the Buyer’ sessions. These services enable exhibitors to be matched with suitable organisations who require products or services.
In a specialist session, the MOD were looking to create long standing commercial partnerships and trade export opportunities, worth many millions. Both attendees and exhibitors heard what they had to say at 10:00 on Thursday 15th.
