Why you should sign up for Sea Japan 2020

Japan is consistently a top 3 in the world shipbuilding tables by any measure.  They build technologically advanced ships which is an ideal target for the UK’s supply chain.

Sea Japan is the premier maritime exhibition and conference in Japan. Over the past several years, Japanese ship owners and ship builders have ridden out a ‘perfect storm’ caused by a strong yen, intense international competition and unfavourable economic conditions. The result is that they are now leaner, fitter and stronger than ever before. Please complete the booking form to secure your space, build and furniture package in the UK Pavilion.

In 2018 the exhibition housed 580 exhibitors and attracted 20,000 visitors. The Society of Maritime Industries (SMI) is the organiser for the UK Group. Companies are hereby invited to join.

The advantages of joining the UK Group are:

  • An enhanced standbuild over the basic shell scheme offer.
  • SMI as the group organiser, deals direct with the Sea Japan 2020 exhibition organisers, co-ordinates payments, appoints agents and stand contractors, briefs the exhibitors, etc.
  • Participants exhibit in the UK pavilion with strong visual UK branding which attracts visitors and international delegations.
  • An evening Networking Event is planned
