Maritime exhibition managers of Asia Pacific Maritime (APM) and INMEX Malaysia events have embarked on a strong strategic collaboration to benefit participants of both events. Key collaborative initiatives include group exhibitor participation, hosting of key maritime events, market intelligence exchange and staging of industry-specific conferences and networking events.
As part of the plans to continuously improve their respective event profiles key exhibitor group participation will be enhanced to expand the exhibitor profile adding more depth and scope to both exhibitions. The critical success of both events hinges on the delivery of key buyer groups and balanced exhibitor representation. It is expected that the cross-promotional efforts of both events will strengthen the commercial ties of maritime industry players between Singapore and Malaysia. APM's local and international exhibitors will be able to tap into the dynamic geographical network of key visitor groups, as well as increase networking opportunities and information exchange with regional industry players. The essence of this collaboration is to enhance exhibitor participation, attract official government and industry delegations and exchange ideas in order to organise fruitful business forums and conferences for the benefit of the maritime fraternity.
With Asia Pacific Maritime being staged during 22 - 24 March 2006 and INMEX Malaysia during 23 - 25 January 2007, this collaboration covers the first quarter of both odd and even calendar year which ensures increased regional networking activities for participants on a yearly basis. Show Managers of both events work closely with strategic partners, national group organisers and buyer associations to deliver better benefits and business opportunities to participants.
