Trails and Pavilions

Dedicated Pavilions and Trails at Seawork help visitors to quickly identify exhibitors, conferences and seminars of particular interest.

Trails are highlighted with particular logos printed on exhibitors' fascia boards. Pavilions are a grouping of similar companies placed together at the exhibition.

The Superyacht Build, Repair and Refit Trail is a new feature for 2018. Superyachts often share the needs of design, propulsion and support with commercial marine vessels and require similar skillsets from commercial marine professionals.

The new Composites Pavilion will feature many of the sophisticated materials and techniques used to build large vessels that demonstrate a clear overlap between commercial marine and the superyacht sector.

The Maritime Training & Skills Trailenables attendees to explore training, apprenticeships, employment and educational opportunities.  Specialist maritime recruitment companies, education centres and training organisations provide expert advice to attendees on entering the industry, and learning, maintaining and developing a successful maritime career.

DiveWork is a showcase for the commercial underwater industry, covering all sectors of offshore, inshore and inland activity.  DiveWork consists of a pavilion and a trail and includes a DiveTank on the quayside where the latest underwater equipment and services will be demonstrated.

The Marine RenewableTrail groups organisations in the renewable energy sector, This trail of companies includes wind farm service vessels, marine civil engineering companies, professional divers, safety equipment suppliers and many more.

The Maritime Security Pavilion, supported by ADS, is a platform for companies wishing to supply products and services to the Military, Police, Port Authorities, Harbour Masters and other Defence and Security Personnel.

RIBWork is a showcase for RIB designers, builders and operators and those who manufacture and supply equipment to the commerical RIB market.

The Shipyard Pavilion has been revitalised with the Society of Maritime Industries (SMI), partnered with Seawork. The SMI is the trade association of the UK’s maritime engineering and business sector, promoting and supporting companies working in this global and dynamic sector.
